It’s the year 1907 and four friends embark on a
life-changing journey across the Atlantic as mail-order brides. When they leave
the Baltic, the women promise to stay in touch as they spread out to the four
corners of the United States.
Benjamin White’s wife died in a flood and left him with twin
daughters. Not only has he lost his wife, but he feels responsible for the
disaster since he designed the failed dam. He wants to help rebuild and assuage
his guilt, but his one-year-old daughters need care. Then Ben hears about a
ship carrying mail-order brides to the New World and requests one be sent to
him. His letter is picked, and Elli Korpela is designated as his new bride.
Elli is determined to meet this new challenge head on. She
has nothing left in Finland, and she’s sure she can be the perfect wife to Ben
and mother to the twin girls. She marries Benjamin and the two find they are
immediately attracted to one another. When someone sets fire to their house,
Elli manages to put out the flames but realizes she hasn’t found the safe haven
she expected. Is the arsonist stalker one of her dead father’s political
opponents or someone closer to home? It will take all the trust she and Ben can
muster to uncover and defeat their joint enemy. Download and start listening now!
