Aundy by Shanna Hatfield
We have another chocolate lover this week! Please welcome Shanna Hatfield!
I love to read and some of the most memorable characters in my favorite books were women of strength and courage. When I started developing the idea for a series set in the western town of Pendleton right around the turn of the 20th century, I knew the women had to be strong, brave, and loveable. Aundy desperately wants a better life for herself and her younger sister and decides to make it happen. I never gave much thought to how courageous women had to be to become someone’s mail order bride until I started writing Aundy’s story. I can’t imagine getting on a train and traveling across the country to marry a man I’d never met, yet hundreds of women did that very thing. As I wrote Aundy’s story, I felt so attached to her emotionally, sharing her struggles, triumphs, laughter and tears.

something akin to selling your soul to Beelzebub.”
