I’m the writer of Bride Ship Three. It is fiction but based on fact. My name is Val and I live just a little downriver from the fictional town of New Derby. It has to be fictional because characters, especially the mayor and the police chief, well, you won’t believe what they get up to.
The “three” are Elinor, Rosie and Janet.
Elinor is so proper that it makes your teeth hurt – at least until she meets the riverboat captain
Rosie is a hooker, there’s no other way to say it – she’s good at it and she’s proud of it, until the law in all its majesty wants her deported
Janet – well, Janet has a genius for falling in love with the wrong man but she discovers that she has an amazing talent.
But you’ll have to read the book to get the details and discover the heart-wrenching conclusion.
