Helpful Score: 3


In post war Seattle, women are few. The men have engaged a professor to return east and find widows to secure as brides. In the east, women are alone due to the ravages of the Civil War. Anna Ivey is alone and penniless. She convinces Professor Mercer to let her accompany him to Seattle to pursue a job cooking. But when she arrives she finds herself handed over to a lumberjack who needs to marry to save his land.
The merry mix and courtship of these two very different people make a pleasurable read. This is one of those stories you don't want to end. . .and when it does you wonder will the next book I read be as good as this book?
