    The Bride's Journey is a fast paced novella full of adventure and intrigue...and spice. It's a quick read, easily finished in one or two sittings.Abigail Preston was reeling from the devastation of her parents' deaths when she got another blow. Her father's will stipulates that she must marry within one year or she would lose her inheritance.Benjamin Siddle was in need of a wife. He placed an ad in a newspaper that changed both of their lives.The Bride's Journey is a delightful historical romance that takes place in 1833, spans two continents and an entire ocean. Abigail is spirited, a bit blunt, and, more often than not, absent-minded. Benjamin is a hard-working and thoughtful frontier man who believes Abigail is perfect as she is. Can they overcome the obstacles that stand in their way?
