Helen Davenport, governess for a wealthy London household, spots an advertisement seeking young women to marry New Zealand's honorable bachelors and begins correspondence with a gentleman farmer. When her church offers to pay her travels under an unusual arrangement, she jumps at the opportunity. On the ship, she meets Gwyneira Silkham, traveling to meet a New Zealand baron who won her in a game of blackjack. When their new husbands turn out to be very different than expected, the women must help one another find the life they'd hoped for.

For my #travelthroughbookschallenge I visited New Zealand with this title. Now to be fair this won‘t be for everyone. This is one of the those saga type reads along the lines of The Thorn Birds. It‘s book 1 in a trilogy. Two different women one from England and one from Wales meet on a ship to start new lives in New Zealand. Life long friendships are formed, adventure found and challenges and loss are experienced. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bklover Loved The Thorn Birds! 2w
KristiAhlers @Bklover me too. So I was totally invested in this one. 2w
Bklover @KristiAhlers I just picked up this one because it‘s in Australia. 2w

A long car ride by myself is a great time to try an audio book. It's good preparation for sitting with friends, reading and wining. 🍷😜
