In 1851, headstrong Evie Lawrence jumps at the chance to head West with her elderly former employer to open a restaurant in a new town called Seattle. Along with several young women who hope to find husbands, Evie is eager to start a new life, only to find the "town" is a rough logging camp not yet suited for women or businesses. Worse, her employer's infuriating nephew, Noah Hughes, thinks she was foolish to come. But Evie is determined to succeed with God's guidance, and she might find happiness for herself along the way. VERDICT Inspired by the 1960s TV series Here Come the Brides, the coauthors of the "Amish of Apple Grove" series team again to launch a new series that combines historical figures associated with the founding of Seattle with fictional characters struggling with their faith. Fans of the authors and of historical romance will enjoy.[Page 56]. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
