Summary
In 1860s Seattle, redwoods were plentiful but women scarce. Yet a man with a wife could secure 640 acres of timberland for free. Joe Denton doesn't have a wife, though. His died before she could follow him to Seattle, and now the local judge is threatening to take away his claim. In desperation, he buys himself a Mercer bride, one of the eastern widows and orphans brought to the Territory by entrepreneur Asa Mercer. Anna Ivey's journey west with Mercer is an escape from the aftermath of the Civil War. She signed on to become a cook, and when she's handed over to Denton, her stubborn refusal to wed jeopardizes his land. With only a few months before he loses his claim, can he convince this provoking, but beguiling, easterner to become his lawfully wedded wife?
