Product description


Praise for The Brideship Wife

"A wonderful debut. . . . This well-researched read marks the arrival of a new talent on the Canadian historical fiction scene."
-- Toronto Star

"A beautifully told, meticulously researched story of the little-known bride ships and the courageous women on board who risked everything for freedom, then fought to get what they deserved. Debut author Leslie Howard brings history to life by masterfully weaving together the social demands of the time, the perilous journey into the unknown, the too often tragic results of colonization, and the hearts and minds of those navigating these troubled waters."
-- GENEVIEVE GRAHAM, #1 bestselling author of The Forgotten Home Child

"Howard's passion for her province's history dances through her story, as she lights on the gold rush, treatment of Indigenous Peoples, local politics, and medical developments against a vividly described background. She takes on heavy themes of sex, class, racial discrimination, and women's rights and freedoms. Yet her novel remains easily readable, entertaining and informative."
-- Winnipeg Free Press

-- The Globe and Mail

"Leslie Howard is a welcome new voice with a confident sense of story, place, and destiny in this engaging coming-of-age novel."
-- ANNE GIARDINI, author of The Sad Truth About Happiness and Advice for Italian Boys

"An enthralling story of a woman who leaves class-stratified, nineteenth century London society for the distant west coast of Canada, where our protagonist, Charlotte, hopes to find a husband, but through Howard's incredible research, we experience numerous aspects of the new world. Charlotte's concern for justice gives the story a refreshing, revisionist feel. A thoroughly enjoyable read."
-- SUZANNE DESROCHERS, bestselling author of Bride of New France

"A welcome insight into the neglected history of the marriageable women sent from England to the colonies. The protagonist, Charlotte, is a true heroine. A spellbinding read. Wonderfully suspenseful, right to the satisfying ending."
-- ROBERTA RICH, bestselling author of The Midwife of Venice --This text refers to the paperback edition.
