I am reviewing a copy of A Reluctant Bride through Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley:
Mercy Wilkins has little hope of a better life living in London’s poorest slums. When she is offered the opportunity to be part of a bride sailing trip headed to British Columbia she agrees. She figured that the Bride ship will offer her better prospects after she witness so much loss and heartaches in the slums. The ship is her prospect and someday her sisters opportunity to escape a bleak future.
Joseph Colville Who is wealthy and entitled leaves home and takes to the sea to escape the pain of loosing his family. As a ship’s surgeon he is responsible for the welfare of the passengers who are aboard the Tynrmouth, including sixty brides to be. He has no intention of immediately settling down but after Mercy becomes his assistant they must both fight against forbidden love.
With of single men congregating on the shore eager to tanks a bride from the Tynemouth, will Mercy and Joseph lose their chance at true love, or will they be able to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way?
I give A Reluctant Bride five out of five stars!
