Faith Blum’s newest novella is available! This one is double trouble! Not only is it about twins, but these twins have reckless and adventurous spirits. When they go against their family, they run into more trouble than they bargained for.
About the Book
Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
Eve and Evangeline Collins are adventurous twins who decide to take a risk and head west as mail order brides. Their parents are less than pleased, but do nothing to stop them. Eve and Evangeline don’t realize their danger until they stop just outside Cheyenne. Will they ever see their family again?
Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. Now that she has grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.
When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana, to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.

Faith: Hello, Eve and welcome to my blog.
Eve: Good morning, Faith. It’s nice to be here. I’m looking forward to meeting some of your friends.
F: That’s great! I hope they enjoy meeting you as much as I have. I have a few questions for you. Do you mind?
E: Not at all. I’ll answer any question unless I think it gives away too much.
F: *laughs* I’ll try not to ask you anything that will require giving anything away. What is your favorite part of being a twin?
E: *leans back in the chair* I always have my sister near me. She’s always been there for me, let me talk things through, been a shoulder to cry on, and so much more.
F: Have you needed a shoulder often?
E: No, not really. I don’t cry a lot, but there was one time at school that I needed one. A bully had pushed me into a mud puddle while I was wearing my favorite dress. Not only did the dress get mud stains on it, but it also got torn.
F: I’m sorry about that. Were you able to fix it?
E: No, I wasn’t, but it made a nice bodice.
F: Does this mean you are creative with your use of things?
E: We had to be. Evangeline and I are the oldest of seven children. While we aren’t dirt poor, we aren’t rich, either.
F: Some of my friends would probably like to know why you and Evangeline went out west. Why did you?
E: We wanted to get married and we wanted adventure. We didn’t see either of those happening where we lived. When I saw the advertisement written by Mr. Allen Reese, I knew we had to try it.
E: It was a way to have both a husband and adventure.
F: *shakes head* I don’t think I’ll ever understand you two. Thanks for stopping by, Eve.
E: Thanks for having me!
