Product description

Product Description

The youngest child of the local doctor and evangelical preacher, Annie Baldwin was expected to work hard and not protest.

Life on a pioneer farm was tough so neighbors helped each other. George Richardson the underage Doctor Bernardo Boy, orphaned and shipped to Canada a few years earlier, is loaned to the Baldwins to help bring in the hay. Younger brother Peter Richardson was placed with another neighbor, so the brothers stayed in touch with each other. The Great War brought a lot of changes to life even in the back woods of Ontario.

In spite of the differences in their social standing, George and Annie fell in love. When George departed for France they had an understanding and he promised to return to her when the war was over. Like so many others, Annie waited and hoped, carrying on as best she could. Only time would tell if her dreams would come true.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday, Books We Love, with the support of the Government of Canada, is publishing a series of novels set in each of the Canadian Provinces and Territories. Each book features a historical event or location as well as the story of a bride and groom, representative of the men and women who came to Canada in search of a new life and new freedoms. These books combine fact and fiction to show how these brides and grooms, all from diverse backgrounds, joined in marriage to create new lives and build a great country.

Annie’s parents are immigrants, who forged a new life in Ontario. Her strict father, a doctor of medicine and an ordained minister of the church, preaches fire and brimstone sermons. Her well-born mother is proud of her social position and expects Annie to live up to it.
Life on the farm, with her brothers and sisters, requires never ending hard work. Annie milks cows, works in the dairy, looks after the pigs and chickens, drives into town to collect the mail and shop for her mother. All this as well as cooking and cleaning.
George and his brother Peter work hard for their keep on nearby farms. They are looked orphans sent to Canada by Dr Barnardo’s, looked down on by the community, and tied to farmers, who mistreat them, with whom they must live until they are adults.
In the First World War, Annie’s two older brothers and both orphans enlist in the army and are sent to France, where they endure the horror of the trenches and mustard gas.
At home without her brothers’ help on the farm Annie’s workload increases, but although her parents are anxious for her to marry she doesn’t like any of the prospective bridegrooms they propose. Nevertheless, spirited Annie dreams of a happy future with the man she loves.
I really enjoyed Bell’s novel, which is rich in descriptions of life in Ontario in times past, the extremes of weather and the beautiful flora and fauna.
His Brother’s Bride contains heart-warming romance but no explicit sex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic History, Real People 28 March 2017
By Juliet Waldron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last! I love well-researched historical novels with a bright thread of the romantic. This one, set in WW1 era Ontario, Canada, was right on the money. The writing was lovely, wonderfully descriptive and flowing. I could see and smell the beauties of the rural world of early 19th Century Ontario where the events take place, with all the glorious season changes, hard-won gardens and tenderly portrayed livestock, all of that sometimes intruded upon by the still real dangers of wolves and bears. I could always sympathize with the tough, strong and often beleaguered heroine. She's the daughter -- one of several -- of a powerful, narrow-minded and occasionally violent father, a stern Calvinist preacher, who rules his children with an iron hand. Annie is the family Cinderella, sent to do the hardest work in field and barn, and always, somehow, ending up everyone's scapegoat. The integration of the horrors of WW1 into the coming of age story was well-done, as one by one the young men, brothers and friends, are invalided out with terrible injuries to body and spirit. Lots of history here, plenty of period atmosphere and an unusual HEA made this a compelling read.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Romance, and Strong Young Woman in WWI 20 May 2017
By Diane Scott Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
During WWI, in the bush of rural Ontario, Canada, teenaged Annie Baldwin works hard on her parents' farm. She's the youngest daughter of a doctor, who also preaches fire and brimstone and expects all his girls to marry respected young men. Her mother is rather cold, and very careful of her place in society.
Two young Irish orphans, bond servants to local farms, help out on the Baldwin farm. George and Peter are nice boys, and soon Annie and George are attracted to one another. Annie defies her parents' wishes and promises George she'll wait for him after he enlists in the army and is sent overseas.
Bell's descriptions of farm life put you right in the fields and barns. The horrors of war are revealed in George's letters to Annie. Annie is a resilient character who follows her heart, even with an unexpected twist at the novel's end.
5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read! 27 March 2017
By SIL - Published on Amazon.com

Staged in the Canadian countryside during WW1, Annie grew up as a farm girl, the daughter of a minister/doctor. She becomes attracted to a farm worker whom her mother figures is below the family's status. The story is tightly written and filled with tension and drama. The scene and chapter transitions flow smoothly and will keep you turning the pages. The author also does a wonderful job with descriptions. I could easily envision the vivid details, thanks to the author's well-crafted use of show don't tell. An entertaining story! I recommend it to readers that love history intertwined with romance.

This book held a poignancy. The heroine's strict parents seemed to be focused on her. WWI plays in the story. Love is put on hold for the gutsy heroine. I enjoyed this story completely.
