Can a marriage of convenience ever become one of true love?
Ingrid Larsen arrives in Michigan in 1871 with little more than the clothes on her back and a determination to find her brother, who has disappeared into the dangerous lumber camps. Destitute and barely hanging on to hope, the young Swedish immigrant crosses paths with Joshua Hunter, a newly widowed farmer with eyes the color of the ocean she had crossed and five rambunctious children to raise on his own.
Marriage would solve both of their problems, and Ingrid finds herself proposing in broken English to a man she barely knows. Many difficulties lie ahead--but the hardest battle of all will be winning the heart of her new husband.
“Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
A great follow up to The Measure of Katie Calloway. Ingrid arrives in Michigan and gets herself into quite a predicament. She is there to find her brother and in doing so she runs into Joshua, a widow with five, count them 5 children! She proposes to him, and much to their grandmother's disapproval they are married.
Watching Joshua and Ingrid fall in love was fun. A completely irresistible story, and characters you will fall in love with!
