Was she a mail-order bride or the ill-gotten prize of a gambler?
Rose O'Brien lost her family during the potato famine in Ireland--all except her older brother who lived in America. She'd resigned herself to marry a man she didn't love, until an unexpected letter came from across the seas, and she fell in love with a man she'd never met.
Thomas Atwood, rebellious, intelligent, and arrogant, couldn't resist besting his friend in a wager for a girl he didn't know. He boasted he could win her hand in marriage within eighteen months through his letters alone. He didn't know winning would cost him his heart.
Can a woman love a man so much that he becomes her idol? Rose must make a choice when, more than anything, she wants both her husband and her heavenly Father, even if the cost is her life.
