Mail Order Bride Verity Preview

verity_small Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas weekend too. I wanted to mention that I’m getting the book Mail Order Bride Verity finished up and edited. It is the fifth book in the series, but they can be read in any order and don’t require reading other ones. But, if you’ve read Mail Order Husband Frank, I want you to know that Charlotte (the woman that is Frank’s sweetheart) is the cousin of Verity. So, you’ll get to read about her as well as a few others from past books (but again, I want to emphasize, this book is a standalone novella and doesn’t require a knowledge of the other ones).

Verity is a teacher at a girls’ academy, but finds out that she is going to be replaced by a woman from England with a stronger background in other languages and French literature. Although, the academy will not be firing Verity, she will have to teach instead composition and the mechanics of writing. She is unhappy about this change and coincidentally received a letter from Charlotte on the day she found out this news. Here’s the beginning of the first chapter and I will be announcing both on this blog and the newsletter when the book is published on Amazon. You can sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of this page to be notified as well as find out about updates and specials. You an also always write me at to say hello!

Mail Order Bride Felicity New Book

Felicity_small_versionI am very happy to announce that Mail Order Bride Felicity was just released! It is Book 3 in the series but they are each stand alone novellas so you can read it first if you’d like. It is about Felicity, who works in a millinery shop and was crushed when a letter arrived telling her that the man she was engaged to married another woman.

However, after much sadness, Felicity looks at some mail order bride ads and starts to write to a doctor in Montana. They have a good connection and the story shows the various issues they run into as their journey together unfolds. You can find it at Amazon CLICK HERE for .99 temporarily.

I like to write about women who love to read and are intelligent, but also want a traditional family. Felicity is also special due to her interest in herbs and healing. Please let me know what you think. The other books in the series are Mail Order Bride Leah and Mail Order Bride Tess.

In fact, there is a very sweet letter from Tess to Felicity in this new book that brought her to tears.

Mail Order Bride Leah

Welcome to Rose Jenster’s Blog

Mail Order Bride Leah I’m a fiction writer, Rose Jenster, and love to write books about women seeking happiness in love by┬áleaving their difficult circumstances. My books are focusing now on the 19th century and the trials of women on the east coast who adventure out west to Montana. This took tremendous courage and often created a rift with one’s parents and family.

Not only is a young woman dealing with fears of being alone her whole life and the apprehensions of going west, but also there can often be rejection from one’s family for taking this kind of leap. This will be four or five stand-alone books, but also with some connections between characters as the series develops. Each book however can be read without reading the other ones.

In the first book of the series, “Mail Order Bride Leah” (click here) , we meet Leah who is a school teacher in Albany. She is saddened by the death of her mother and the decline mentally of her father (which resulted in his business failing). Leah does not want to live at her brother’s family’s home and be a burden. Her brother’s wife, Jane, told Leah that her sister found happiness by answering a mail order bride ad. We watch Leah’s journey in reading and answering ads and developing feelings for a man she corresponds with from Montana.

Leah did not expect her brother’s disapproval about meeting the man she developed strong feelings for and we get to experience her dealing with his rejection, adventure out west and the physical and emotional trials that she goes through in sorting out this new experience. Why does the man that she felt so close with by mail change in person? What creates his distance and can this gap be bridged? Who is the person from the past that haunts him? Read more about Leah’s trip out west and how it turns out for her HERE.

If you’ve already read about Leah’s story, Book 2 is also available. It is here, “Mail Order Bride Tess“. I’ll describe it more in the next post. The second book involves another woman from Albany, NY and her journey to find love and happiness.
