Summary

“Isobel, you are not thinking clearly. You are not considering all you would be sacrificing, all you would endure! And to be the wife of a stranger...."

Boston, 1838: Once upon a time Isobel Moore was thought to be one of Boston’s most eligible young women. But, after a marriage proposal gone wrong, she is now at threat of being labelled a spinster. And, though her work at a small school for impoverished immigrants brings her great joy, she can’t help but wish for more in life.

When her dream of finding love fails to come true, she knows - if she’s to have the family she dreams of - it will take desperate measures.

Her parents wish for nothing more than Isobel to find happiness, too. But when she announces she’s traveling to Burma to meet and marry a missionary she’s never met, they think she must have taken leave of her senses.

Isobel believes fate will guide her to a man she could one day love. But the paths we take do not always lead us where we expect.... And Isobel’s dream of true love may be more fragile than she had ever imagined.

An incredible story about bravery, broken hearts, and the powerful forces of fate, perfect for fans of Colleen McCullough, Laura Frantz, and Colleen Coble.

Previously published as A Distant Shore.

Harrowing

I liked reading this book. Subject well researched and interesting but the story seemed to miss a real spark. I would, however, recommend the book to people interested in reading about suffering at the hands of the Japanese .
