My Story BEFORE The Story - Mail-Order Mishaps

My name is Caleb Blair. I had no intention of getting into it with Buck Tinan. All I wanted to do that day was fetch Eve Martin at the train depot and then get married. And here I am in a jail cell, for crying out loud! Miss Martin will probably get on the next eastbound train and not look back. Can’t say as I’d blame her.

I got a real break when I was twenty and was able to buy my own spread with some money my pa left me. I’ve worked really hard to build it up over the past decade, and I’m just about ready to hire some help. But, man, it gets lonesome when you’re by yourself on a ranch. After giving it a lot of thought, I placed one of those bride ads, and the sweetest woman answered me. Eve Martin.

We wrote letters back and forth for months before she finally agreed to come out to Cheyenne and marry me. That was the best day of my life. After I got that letter, saying she’d become Mrs. Blair, I did everything I could to get ready for her. I cleaned up my place at the ranch and bought a few new things I hoped would please her, like a teapot and new towels, stuff like that.

And then I got into this mess. Sure, I hit Tinan. He was whipping that boy he got off the orphan train. But I didn’t kill him, no matter what people say. I’m just praying that Eve believes me, not what the sheriff says. If not, I’ll probably never see her face-to-face.

  4. Joy, thanks for having me as a guest. This collection was a lot of fun. My story, The Bride's Dilemma, is first in the book. The other 3 stories are terrific, too, by some favorite Christian historical authors.
