Yellow roses appear briefly in three scenes within COURTING MISS CARTWRIGHT. Yellow roses, particularly Harison’s Yellow, are found strewn along the Oregon trail, blooming feral alongside abandoned ruins of cabins and clapboard houses in ghost towns, and originated in 1824 New York. This article contains the ‘Cemetery Scene’ where Felicity, new to Mountain Home and seeking answers. visits the cemetery and first notices the yellow roses on her father’s grave. This scene is the first conversation between sisters who’ve not known about each other until their father’s will brought them together the evening before–and they’d been barely civil.
A Peek Inside Gideon’s Secondhand Bride shares most of a scene from within the novella. This scene, wherein John Gideon teaches his mail-order bride of convenience to shoot his rifle. This interaction occurs near the middle of the book, so it’s not visible in Amazon’s “look inside” feature.
