Text Order Bride by Kirsten Osbourne


This is a short story about a girl who marries a farmer whom she has never met and with whom she has only communicated by email/text/phone.  Although, the tale was a little unrealistic (in an old-fashioned way) and a bit too happily-ever-after, it was well structured and well written (with some spicy adult content) and I found it enjoyably rose-tinted.  Whilst I very rarely read short stories, I found this a pleasant way to spend 45 minutes and not only will I seek out more work by this author, she can also be proud of the fact that, from now on, I will certainly entertain more short story reads.
