A dramatic story of a ‘mail order wife’ in 19th century America when all a man really wants is someone to look after the homestead and give him a son. This fellow gets a disfigured woman who bares him a daughter! So a good storyline is set for an effortless comfortable read. Nice one.

Synopsis

A Bargain Struck by Liz Harris

Does a good deal make a marriage? Widower Connor Maguire advertises for a wife to raise his young daughter, Bridget, work the homestead and bear him a son. Ellen O'Sullivan longs for a home, a husband and a family. On paper, she is everything Connor needs in a wife. However, it soon becomes clear that Ellen has not been entirely truthful. Will Connor be able to overlook Ellen's dishonesty and keep to his side of the bargain? Or will Bridget's resentment, the attentions of the beautiful Miss Quinn, and the arrival of an unwelcome visitor, combine to prevent the couple from starting anew. As their personal feelings blur the boundaries of their deal, they begin to wonder if a bargain struck makes a marriage worth keeping.

Reviews

Liz Harris s vivid portrayal of 1880s mid-west America as a place ruled by the elements where neighbourly trust is essential to survival, is another sure hit to add to the burgeoning canon of Choc Lit s highly readable popular fiction.
