Unemployed mill worker Zoe Hart jumps at the opportunity to emigrate to British Columbia in 1863 to find a better life and be reunited with her brother, who fled from home after being accused of a crime.

Pastor to miners in the mountains, Abe Merivale discovers an abandoned baby during a routine visit to Victoria and joins efforts with Zoe, one of the newly arrived bride-ship women, to care for the infant. While there, he’s devastated by the news from his fiancee in England that she’s marrying another man.

With mounting pressure to find the baby a home, Zoe accepts a proposal from a miner of questionable character after he promises to help her locate her brother. Intent on protecting Zoe and frustrated by his failed engagement, Abe offers his own hand as groom. After a hasty wedding, they soon realize their marriage of convenience is not so convenient after all.

    I enjoy Jody’s books and I love marriage of convenience stories. But I do wonder how many of these marriages turned out in a bad way in real life.

  4. Michelle Fidler

    I enjoyed one of her books. I probably own a few other books by her that I haven’t read.

  5. Mardell Grayhek

    It is easy to devour her books….and to be able to listen is like not having to put the book down when you need to fix dinner or go run errands.

  6. Lynette

    I’m especially interested in this as it’s an audiobook. For the first time, I’ve listened to more books than I’ve read this year.

  7. Several of my friends gush about her books so I’d love to read one. I’ve found a real love for audio books this year. I can stay active and ‘read’ at the same time! 🙂

  8. Perrianne Askew

    I always enjoy Jody Hedlund’s writing, so I think it would be a real treat to have an audio copy to listen to.

  9. Beverly Duell-Moore

    I have never heard an audio book! It would be a new experience for me to “hear” one.
