Jenny’s Secret Diary

(Brides of Pelican Rapids Book 7)

by Lisa Prysock

Jenny's Secret Diary

Jenny Lindford is a southern belle from Lexington, Kentucky about to become a mail-order bride in Minnesota. The eldest of five sisters, she worked hard to help her ma hold the family horse farm together while her father was away fighting in the Civil War. Raised to be an independent thinker, she attends Miss Clark’s Finishing School after the war, and then tours England and France with one of her sisters under an aunt’s watchful eyes. However, it seems no one can see what she’s writing in that journal of hers.

Philadelphia-born Dr. Zane Beckham has led a privileged life. Not only is he world-traveled, but he’s entitled to an enormous inheritance from his father’s Pittsburgh iron foundry and railroad investments. The Beckhams have made a fortune during the war selling iron to shipbuilders, locomotive makers, and weaponry manufacturers. In his early thirties, Zane is ready to settle down. He’s been building a mansion for his bride in the small town of Pelican Rapids, and maybe a few other things, too.

When matchmaker Ella Milton brings these two together and they begin a correspondence through the mail, Jenny and Zane both have secrets they aren’t ready to reveal. Even Ella isn’t sure what these two hearts should do. Will her matchmaking efforts backfire when their secrets are revealed, or can love overcome the best kept secrets?
