Desperate to strike it rich or eager for free land, men went into the frontier West alone and sacrificed many creature comforts. Only after they arrived at their destinations did some of them realize how much they missed female companionship.

One way for men living on the frontier to meet women was through subscriptions to heart-and-hand clubs. The men received newspapers with information about women with whom they could correspond—sometimes with photographs. Eventually a man might convince a woman to join him in the West, and in matrimony.

Join us for an interview American author Chris Enss to discuss her new book: Object Matrimony: The Risky  Business of Mail-Order Match-Making on the Western Frontier.

Talk radio host managing editor of NEWD Magazine Tiffani Knowles  and Tasha Phipps gab for an hour about trends, music,  faith and much more. Every week we interview a super cool guest appealing to a faith-filled, urban twentysomething market.
