Four Romantic Novellas Linked by Family and LoveBook - 2001
In 1858, orphaned, Charity Davis must join Ethan Cole's wagon so she can can continue along the Oregon Trail. Can a lady and a rough carpenter be equally yoked? Happily enough, she becomes his Button String Bride. With hope and love, Ethan carves a beautiful wedding chest to protect her wedding gown and beloved button string - all heirlooms to be passed on to their daughters and granddaughters. Hoping to get her mind off herself, Faith Cole makes a trip to Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to visit her great-grandmother in the spring of 1889. Convinced that a disability will keep her from ever marrying, Faith shuns the hope in her mother's wedding trunk. But will she be The Wedding Quilt Bride who makes the next addition to the chest? Many opportunities are opening to women of the late 1920's, but Jo Mayer, a runaway, can only find work as a maid at a San Francisco mansion where illegal activity is brewing. Who can she trust? And how can the Bayside Bride leave her legacy, now that the beloved heirloom trunk has been stolen from her? Carly Simmons would like to enjoy the treasures in her antique wedding chest, but love hasn't been able to catch up with this woman of the fast-paced modern world. When Carly meets an intriguing man through her social services work, could her reaction to him forever label her as The Persistent Bride? These four closely related stories will warm your heart with family love and traditions. Each bride has a legacy of faith to leave with generations to come. And the heirloom chest will forever be symbolic of their love.
