My newest BOOK BABY!
Thousand Islands Brides, Book 4
Colleen’s Confession is set in 1914 on Comfort Island. Colleen Sullivan conceals secrets when she joins her aunt on Comfort Island to work in the laundry and await her betrothed’s arrival. She loves to draw and dreams of growing in the craft. But tragedy strikes when her fiancé perishes in the sinking of the ocean liner RMS Empress of Ireland on his way to meet her. With her orphan dreams of finally belonging and becoming a wife and an artist gone, what will her future hold?
Austrian immigrant, Jack Weiss, enjoys being the island’s groundskeeper and is smitten by the lovely Irish lass. But Colleen dismisses him at every turn, no matter how much he admires her art, tries to keep her safe, and waters the blossoms of love. Perhaps introducing her to the famous impressionist, Alson Skinner Clark, will brighten her opinion of him. But rumors of war in Europe means Jack must choose between joining his homeland’s army or staying safe in the Thousand Islands as he makes a life with Colleen. If she will have him.
The first three novellas in the Thousand Islands Brides series features a woman who you met in the previous novels—The Fabric of Hope, Katelyn’s Choice, and Devyn’s Dilemma. But Colleen’s Confession stands alone. Yet each woman eventually finds love and hope in her journey around the Thousand Islands.
Check them all out, and enjoy a warm and inspiring holiday read.
