About this Book
Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith, beloved authors of the Amish of Apple Grove series, team up again in an exciting new series for devoted fans and new readers. It’s 1851, and Evie Lawrence is penniless and heartbroken after a failed romance. When a kind elderly man announces his plan to move west and make his fortune, Evie jumps at the chance to go with him and start a new life. She says goodbye to the only home she’s ever known and sets out for the Northwest. There she meets Noah Hughes, a handsome young man who has gambled everything he owns on the chance to make a fresh start. Living the rugged life of a lumberjack, he too is determined to one day make his fortune. The last thing he’s looking for is a bride…so why can’t he get Evie out of his mind? In this first book of the Seattle Brides series, two people learn what it means to move beyond their expectations and embrace the very best God has for them.
This was a fun and entertaining story. I had never thought about what life would have been like in those early days when the west was just being settled. The authors did a good bringing to to life. And although the title gives away the ending it was a journey with some laughs and touching moments.
The chemistry between Evie and Noah was a blast and at time literally. The interaction between them were at times feisty and always fun to watch. The other characters and the subplots added a lot to the story, I especially like Ethel with her common sense and work ethic and her storyline.
This is a great introduction to a new series. I look forward to more laughs and loves with the Seattle Brides.
