Misty’s True Love (Mail Order Brides of Pioneer Town, Book TWO)
Misty went to live with her elderly aunt after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, but when her aunt dies, Misty answers a mail order bride advertisement in the local Matrimonial News. The man is a rancher from Pioneer Town, where Indiana now lives with her new husband, Morgan.
When Misty arrives in Pioneer Town, she is shocked, but pleased to see that she already knows the man. The man’s mother is not so happy with her son's choice of a bride, as she has already chosen for him Rosamund Swire, a suitable woman with class and good breeding. He assures Misty he will not bend to his mother's will, but when happiness is almost in her grasp, a devious plot brings her hopes crashing down around her.
When Misty is accused of a wrongdoing, will her betrothed believe she is innocent or will his mother's hopes be realized with his attentions turning to Rosamund Swire?

Ruth Hartzler is a #1 Christian Romance best-selling author and a multiple Kindle All-Star Awarded author. Ruth Hartzler’s father was from generations of Brethren. Ruth’s mother, a Southern Baptist, had years of struggle adapting to the cultural differences, and always cut her hair, which was a continual concern to Ruth’s father’s family. Ruth was raised strictly Brethren and from birth attended three meetings every Sunday, the Wednesday night meeting, and the yearly “Conference,” until she left the Brethren at the age of twenty one. Ruth still has close friends in the Brethren, as well as the Amish, both groups having Anabaptist (literally: re-baptizers: belief in adult baptism) roots. Ruth’s family had electricity, but not television, radio, or magazines, and they had plain cars. Make up, bright or fashionable clothes, and hair cutting were not permitted for women. Women had to wear hats in meetings (what others would call church meetings) but not elsewhere. The word “church” was never used and there were no bishops or ministers. All baptized men were able to speak (preach, or give out a hymn) spontaneously at meetings. Musical instruments were forbidden, with the exception of the traditional pump organ which was allowed only if played in the home for hymn music. Even so, singing of hymns in accompaniment was forbidden.
Ruth Hartzler is a widow with one adult child and two grandchildren. She lives alone with her Yorkshire Terrier and two cats. She is a retired middle school teacher and enjoys quilting, reading, and writing.
