The Wedding Journey



The mysterious inheritance is the answer to a prayer. Now Irish lass Maeve Murphy and her sisters can come to America! She's sure happiness awaits her, even if it won't—can't—come from widowed ship doctor Flynn Gallagher. Yes, he made her his assistant, but she's not foolish enough to fall for the man all the eligible, wealthy female passengers admire.

Flynn Gallagher may have his pick of ladies, but only one cares as he does for the sick and poor. Flynn vowed never to marry another woman who could break his heart. With Maeve, has his heart found safe harbor at last?

My Review:

Imagine my delight when I uncovered this one at the bottom of a delivery box destined for the recycle bin! Yeeesssss! My TBR pile wasn't bare after all. I had one more book left and what a dream it was! First -- I love all things Irish and this series is entitled the Irish Brides. My heart was in a swoon before I even opened the book and it continued to pit-a-pat right through to the end because the romance is divine! In fact the whole story is a wonderful blend of grit and grace. St. John has created a fascinating community aboard the ship bound for the states. In fact, most of the story takes place on board and is full of interesting historical details about what it must have been like to travel across the Atlantic Ocean on a quest for a better life in the mid 1800s.  Honestly, this book is a gem worthy of  the crown jewels of Ireland! Cue Celtic music, sit back and enjoy this iontach book!(psst...that's Irish for wonderful.)
