Lina's Lasting Legacy

(The fifth book in the Rejected Mail-Order Brides series)
A novel by

Men seldom make passes at lasses in glasses...

Dorothy Parker is credited for a variation on that phrase, but a decided stigma has long been attached to the need for spectacles, especially on women.

Lina has the vision of a hawk and can see things clearly over great distances. Unfortunately, her teacher discovers when Lina starts school, anything much closer than her outstretched arm is...blurry. By now, accustomed to seeing her wearing glasses, none but strangers give her a second glance, and she seldom thinks about her spectacles unless they are smudged from fingerprints, or she is away from the city and enjoying the landscape.

Then her circumstances change, and Lina finds herself about to become a mail-order bride, engaged to a stranger, on a train to Texas. Eyes alternately drawn to the passing scenery or enrapt in in one of the novels she brought to while away the journey, she is unaware of the pitying glances and stares directed her way by her fellow passengers.

Lina has been beset by one misfortune after another, culminating in this trip to meet her future husband. She's totally unprepared for what is to come.
