‘Bride Ship’ gets great review

Most of my reviews have been written by friends or acquaintances who, bless them, have been very positive.

Yesterday I had a review from the Historical Novel Society, who are totally independent. and it was great:

“Three very different women encounter the roughest aspects of the New World when their ‘bride ship’ arrives at the gold rush town of New Derby, British Columbia. There is passionate dreamer Janet, who hopes for a new life; refined Elinor, and enterprising prostitute Rosie. Each has made the long voyage from England for different reasons, and the voyage has forged a friendship between them that is as strong as it is unlikely.

In New Derby they encounter a variety of adventures and face the constant prospect of dangers and deportations that threaten to end their New World experiences before they can make the most of them. Through it all they have each other, and Adolph’s portrayal of the complex rewards of these unusual friendships is the strongest part of a very powerful and entertaining novel.”

I felt great!
