Mail Order Bride Jessica
Jessica Donnelly is the daughter of a wealthy family living in Rochester, New York. Through a misunderstanding, her reputation became compromised and her parents feared she would no longer be eligible to marry into a high society family. Her mother decided it would be best for her to go to England and meet a man who would not be familiar with the local gossip. However, Jessica did not want this for herself and in fact was much more comfortable with a life of reading, being around animals and spending time outdoors than attending card parties and fancy events.
She decided to take matters into her own hands and browse the advertisements in a matrimonial newspaper to find a man out west who might be kind and love her for who she is instead of her dowry.
Jessica writes to Timothy Lane, the sheriff in Billings, Montana. She hides her wealth from him as well as her reason for desperately wanting to move out west. Can Sheriff Lane, a man who lives with stray animals in his house, be a match for someone who wears lace and was raised with etiquette lessons, musical instruction and tea parties? How does he deal with his awkwardness around her and his discomfort with her upbringing? Can Jessica adjust to Montana Territory and a man who keeps a raccoon and other animals in his home plus has a few secrets of his own?
Time is running out for Miss Elizabeth Elliot. She must find a husband soon, for her father’s plan of retrenchment — and his health — are failing. She is left to choose between Sir Henry, a worn out man of fashion whose invalid wife is not quite dead, and wealthy, tiresome Mr. Rushworth.
But when a wondrous invitation arrives, Elizabeth throws caution to the wind. Alone in a moonlight garden, she encounters Admiral Patrick McGillvary, who is as disastrously handsome as he is opinionated.
As Elizabeth will discover, the course of love is anything but smooth.
Eighteen year old Izzy’s limited world begins to feel cramped after she completes her self-appointed book dare. After reading two-hundred and fifty books, a thought that had been once tucked away as tightly as the books on her library shelves becomes too irresistible to ignore…”Who am I?”
Memory loss prohibits Izzy from remembering her life before age seven when she was injured in a fire. Jonathan Gudwyne and his head housekeeper rescued her and took Izzy in as their own, but who did she belong to before they took her in?
Crippling panic keeps Izzy from wandering beyond the stables but Tubs, the Gudwyne’s young stable boy, encourages Izzy to go beyond the property’s rock wall to a world that promises possible answers, but also great danger. A scorched castle in the woods and a mysterious cellar filled with secrets sets Izzy on a path to the New World, where she will not only have to face her own terror but face the people responsible for her scars.
It is here, in the untamed wilds of the seventeenth century that she finds love and a home in the most unexpected of places.
