A leisurely stroll through Seattle's history, with a mix of both real and fictional characters. This book takes readers back to Seattle 4 years after the close of the last book, A Bride for Noah.
Katherine's father arranges for her to go to Seattle to work for a distant cousin. Katherine didn't want to come to Seattle and she plan to leave when the boat does, but there is no room for her so she is forced to stay in Seattle for a while.
One of the best things about this book is how welcoming Evie and Louisa are to Katherine, and become her fast friends. They encourage her to stay and help pave the way for her to feel at home.
Jason is one man in Seattle who is not happy that Katherine is there. He figures that they only reason a woman would come to a place with so few women and plenty of men, is to find a husband. And Jason is determined not to be that man.
There wasn't much interaction between Jason and Katherine, mostly because Jason was kind of avoiding her, but he did a good job of making up for lost time once he'd figured it out.
Overall, this was novel filled with historical insight into the difficulties faced by the early settlers of Seattle, as well as the tensions. Great for people who like history mixed with a sweet romance.
