The Erie Canal Brides Collection


The Erie Canal Brides Collection

Completed in 1825, the Erie Canal connected the Great Lakes to the Hudson River, and soon other states like Ohio created canals linking Lake Erie to the Ohio River. Suddenly the Midwest was open to migration, the harvesting of resources, and even tourism. Join seven couples who live through the rise of the canals and the problems the waterways brought to each community, including land grabs, disease, tourists, racism, and competition. Can these couples hang on to their faith and develop love during times of intense change? “The Way of a Child” by Lauralee Bliss Widower David Marshall has no interest in selling his farm to the Erie Canal project presented by agent Ray O'Neil and his daughter Melanie. But his sons Matthew and Luke have taken a peculiar liking to Melanie. What the children reveal paves the way to a surprising future. “Return to Sweetwater Cove” by Christina Miller Reverend Josiah Wells travels to his hometown to pastor the church and make restitution for his youthful sins. Betsy Bennett wants to honor her late husband's memory and make sure Sweetwater Cove never discovers the secret she shares with Josiah. Can they leave behind the past and find love beside still waters? Also includes “Wedding of the Waters” by Rita Gerlach, “Digging for Love” by Ramona K. Cecil Rochester, “Journey of the Heart” by Johnnie Alexander, “Pressing On” by Rose Allen McCauley and “The Bridge Between Us” by Sherri Wilson Johnson
