Prudence was the shrewish nemesis of all the potential brides that came from the Mail-Order Brides of the West Agency, but her difficult personality has left her as one of two unclaimed brides, and now that the Agency will be closing she is left with nowhere to turn—until a tongue-in-cheek recommendation from some of the brides in Sweetwater Springs leads to a proposal from a man in nearby Morgan’s Crossing. I just love when a villain is shown to possess some goodness along with the more difficult side of their personality. I didn’t know it was possible, given her vindictive past behavior, but I actually felt sorry for her through much of this story. In many ways, she is a truly misunderstood person that had always tried to protect herself from the hurts of her past. Michael had just as much to make up for and learn from, in this thing, and it was fun to see them work through that together. Great story! I’m excited to move on to Bertha’s story!
