This is a true story in fictional form. About a young couple's struggle to found a homestead & build a new life together on the South Dakota frontier in the 1850s. Story of faith and courage unshaken by hardships as they struggle to survive the winter, handle insect plague, Indian attack, childbirh & poverty. Their first home was a dugout where on Molly's 17th birthday, their first baby is born.

Sarah, A Festive Bride by Hildie McQueen
Brides for all Seasons series #8. Historical romance. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Sarah Michaels agrees to be a mail order bride and heads to Wyoming to meet her intended. When she arrives after a hot and long journey, her future husband doesn’t greet her though he is simply across the street. She decides she will look for work to support herself and decides she will be fine.
Robert Fields can’t believe his future wife arrived on the same stage coach as his parents. He’s knows his mother can be disagreeable at best and doesn’t want to introduce everyone when they are weary for the journey. He knows he must apologize profusely to Sarah and explain the situation and hope she will forgive him.
Sarah does agree to continue with the marriage plan knowing to expect less than kindness from her new mother-in-law.

Sarah is kindhearted and makes friends easily in the small town of Rancheste, Wyoming. She sets up her new home, learns to cook and helps to plan a festival. Hoping her mother-in-law will eventually like her is a more difficult road but advice from a friend helps smooth the rough road. A bit of drama brings home to everyone that life and love is important and they are all lucky to have each other.

Sweet and charming, it’s a mail order bride success.

Rose Wilder Lane was a born pioneer woman. From early childhood she was groomed by her parents to have courage, resilience, and faith in order to survive anything the Midwest wilderness could throw at her. So it was easy for Lane to fictionalize her life in the character of Molly Purl. In Young Pioneers Molly becomes a wife to David at sixteen and a mother by seventeen on the long journey out west via the settler's trail. These are the days of trading goods for essentials and being resourceful while the transcontinental railroad was being built. Once in South Dakota, in quick succession, Molly learned about the harsh countryside, motherhood, and survival. Her first challenge was to give birth safely in their new sod shanty hundreds of miles from family, friends or medical care. With a newborn on her hip and her husband, David, away for months at a time looking for work, Molly encountered events that tested her courage, resilience, and faith. If it wasn't a plague of grasshoppers, it was blinding blizzards, or starving wolves. While she wasn't exactly alone on the prairie, she was without help once the grasshoppers forced her nearest neighbors to move back east. Her faith in her husband's return kept her going.… (mere)

Rose Wilder Lane's 1932 novel, LET THE HURRICANE ROAR, is another book recovered from my late mother's stash stored in her closet. Mom's yellowing 1968 reprint of what was perhaps Lane's most popular and enduring book gave me some insight into the controversy over the authorship of the popular LITTLE HOUSE books, written by Lane's mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder. The first book in that series, LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS, was published about the same time as this one, and it is well known that Lane (already a prolific writer) was a close collaborator and editor of her mother's work. And what I saw here was a short (152 pages), adult novel about Lane's grandparents, Charles and Caroline Ingalls, that contained elements of that first Little House book, as well as ON THE BANKS OF PLUM CREEK, LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, and THE LONG WINTER. And yes, the style is very, VERY similar to that which made her mother's books so endearing and popular. I read the whole thing in just a few hours after dinner last night. A most enjoyable read. Very highly recommended.
