About the Author: Kristy McCaffrey

As a child, Kristy McCaffrey frequently narrated to herself. It soon became apparent that she had an affinity for this writing thing. Raised on a steady diet of sci-fi/fantasy and tales of King Arthur, she transferred this love of mythic storytelling to penning western romances once she decided, at long last, to pay attention to her natural inclinations. Educated as an engineer, she swiftly gave that up to be a stay-at-home mom and aspiring author. She and her husband live in the Arizona desert, where their four children are in varying stages of flying the nest. A great love of travel frequently ends up on her blog, along with attempts at humor. This is often at the expense of her kids, which has led them to proclaim, "We will no longer read your blog, Mom." They also refuse to follow her on Twitter. Kristy believes life should be lived with curiosity, compassion, and gratitude, and one should never be far from the enthusiasm of a dog. She also likes sleeping-in, eating Mexican food, and doing yoga at home in her pajamas.

Alice: Bride of Rhode Island is thirteenth in the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series. Fleeing her stepfather and an arranged marriage in Newport, Alice Endicott finds work as a seamstress at the Brown Textile Mill near Boston. When a devastating fire destroys the factory, she and all the girls face dire unemployment circumstances. But hope arrives when their manager, Roberta McDaniel, shares the Grooms' Gazette with them. Each woman will choose a husband and become a mail-order bride. As Alice's friends-Lottie, Leora, Judith, Beth, Lessie and Josie-embrace the idea, she too becomes caught up in the excitement of a grand new adventure. When fisherman Frank Martel contacts her, Alice can't pass up the opportunity to return to Rhode Island despite her stepfather's presence. Upon arriving at the train station in Tiverton, however, Frank neglects to meet her. James Martel is shocked to find a woman at the rail depot claiming to be his brother's fiancee. Even more surprising is her connection to a man who ruined James' father years before. When Frank confesses that he can no longer wed Alice, James steps forward to fill the role since the beautiful young woman holds the key to avenging the Martel name. Can Alice convince her new husband that their marriage is worth saving once she discovers his subterfuge? And will James learn that love is more important than revenge? A sweet romance set in 1890 America."
