Award-winning Christian fiction author Laura Frantz has wooed readers with her lyrical and historically accurate novels. Her gift of storytelling has brought early America back to life as readers have relived the American Revolution, walked the streets in colonial Williamsburg, explored life during the French and Indian War, and glimpsed the daring lives of the pioneers who first crossed the Appalachians. In her newest book, Tidewater Bride, Frantz takes readers on a journey to the salty shores of seventeenth-century Virginia, where pride, honor, and the restorative power of true love blend together.
One of Virginia Colony’s most eligible maids, Selah Hopewell, has no wish to wed. Although the number of men far outweigh women in James Towne, Selah is already tasked with assisting her father in the family shop and taking care of a shipload of tobacco brides who must sort through their many suitors. But despite her best intentions as a matchmaker, she finds herself drawn to Virginia’s foremost tobacco lord and landowner. Will she reconsider when new revelations about him come to light?
Xander Renick is considered one of the most eligible bachelors in the colony with his large settlement, his prized tobacco crop, and his indispensable position as mediator between the colonists and the powerful Powhatan nation. Yet he has no interest in taking a bride. He is already wedded to his business and is still grieving the loss of his wife, daughter of the Powhatan chief. But the tide turns when circumstances conspire to bring Xander and Selah together rather than drive them apart.
Can two fiercely independent people find happiness and fulfillment on their own? Or will they discover that what they’ve been missing in life has been right in front of them all along?
