Julianne flees her Uncle’s home in New
York to be a mail order bride in the Northwest. She feels
this is her only way out of being treated as a house slave
for her Aunt and Uncle’s children. What she doesn’t count
on is that the man who sent for her has married someone else
and now suddenly wants the money back that he sent.
Unfortunately for Julianne this money was stolen by her
Uncle and she doesn’t know how she will get it. But she
places her faith in God and decided that she will accept the
winner of a lumbering contest as her husband.
Caleb is drawn to the pretty new woman
in the lumber camp. He has recently suffered the loss of
his sister and now has her infant to care for and feels if
he can win the contest they will both get what they need.
But will Julianne ever fully trust
Caleb and will believe her when things get tough and she
hides things from him?
Shelter in Seattle is a sweet story about love
conquering all and life in the rugged Northwest. I enjoyed
following how Julianne grows into a trusting woman who is
able to deal with not only her past but meeting new people
and making a home for herself. I was intrigued how this
team of writers took Shelter in Seattle and
made it into an inspirational love story, after it started
out with Julianne on the run. I think they did a wonderful
job. If you are a fan of inspirational romances then you
need to pick up Shelter in Seattle.
