The Bride Ships

Mercy Wilkins lives in London's poorest slum, so when she's offered the opportunity to join a bride ship sailing to British Columbia, she agrees. The journey abroad — and marriage to an unknown man — is her only prospect for escaping a bleak future. Wealthy and titled Joseph Colville joins the ship’s crew to escape the pain of losing his family. As the ship's surgeon, he's in charge of the passengers' welfare, including sixty brides-to-be. When Mercy becomes his assistant, the two fight against a forbidden love. Will they miss their chance at true love, or can they overcome the obstacles that threaten to keep them apart?
