Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
A Bride in the Bargain
by: Deeanne Gist
A Bride in the Bargain was one of the first novels I’ve read by Deeanne Gist. I really enjoyed this story. It’s a very easy and engaging read. I did take issue with the main character’s stubbornness, but I think that’s because I recognized the same stubborn streak in myself. Overall, I definitely loved the story and highly recommend it.
About the Book
In 1860s Seattle, a man with a wife could secure himself 640 acres of timberland. But because of his wife’s untimely death, Joe Denton finds himself about to lose half of his claim. Still in mourning, his best solution is to buy one of those Mercer girls arriving from the East. A woman he’ll marry in name but keep around mostly as a cook.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!
