Too Rich for a Bride

Mona Hodgson has written a period book unlike others I have read. This one is about women entering the business world, becoming independent rather than depending totally on a husband for their support.

In Too Rich for a Bride, we meet Ida Sinclair, an independent lady whose goal is definitely not romance. She obtains a job in Cripple Creek, Colorado, the residence of her two sisters, and is well on her way. However, two men vie for her attention and she finds that she must make a decision.

Ida learns that women of means are not looked upon fondly in her new town. She also learns some upsetting things about her employer, Mollie O'Brien. She has to decide whether she will buck the tide of opinion or give in to her heart.

As Ida deals with her feelings and yields her heart to the Lord, she has some big decisions to make as she determines her priorities.

This was a fun book to read, and it compelled me to order other books in the series. Check Mona Hodgson's page on Amazon for the titles.

I received this book free from Multnomah for my honest opinion.
