ABOUT THE BOOK
Always close, but never a bride.
Longing to find true love, Kate Millington arrives in British Columbia on a bride ship. With countless men waiting to snag a bride, Kate has no trouble getting engaged. It’s staying engaged that’s the problem. After traveling to the remote mining town of Williamsville to marry her newest fiancé, she finds herself single again.
As the prosperous owner of a gold mine, Zeke Hart has everything he’s ever wanted except for a wife. At Kate’s arrival, he takes it upon himself to protect his childhood friend from the men clamoring to court her. The more he renews her friendship, the more he wants to win her for himself. But as much as Kate admires Zeke, she’s resolved not to marry someone who doesn’t share her faith.
When Zeke begins receiving anonymous threats, he unwittingly puts them both in grave danger. In the midst of peril, the past rises up to haunt them both, and Zeke realizes the fight for Kate’s affection may be his biggest challenge yet.
'She could do this. After all, this was why she'd left Manchester last fall and sailed halfway across the world on the Robert Lowe bride ship. She'd come to find a husband and get married!'In the conclusion to the Bride Ships series, Jody Hedlund offers another intriguing story that includes a beautiful young woman who can't commit because of scars left by her father's desertion, a man who has lived recklessly and often immorally in his search to change his life of poverty, and hundreds of men desperately seeking a wife. All of these situations play a major part in Almost a Bride and you can rest assured that a lot of drama is about to take place in British Columbia!
