Having seen both his sisters Grace and Helen happily married, Christopher Thatcher is free to pursue his dream of life in America.
With adventure in his heart and mind, he boards one of the first steamships set to cross the Atlantic in the record breaking time of only twenty-five days. Within the first two of those, his resolve—to avoid women and the complications they often bring to a man’s life—falters when he meets Marsali Abbott, a young woman with a past even more troubling than his own.
Whether from years of habit protecting his sisters, or simply because he feels drawn to Marsali, Christopher chooses to help her and becomes her friend. As the truth about what awaits Marsali in America becomes evident, he is faced with a more difficult choice, one that will impact their lives far beyond four weeks together at sea.
I really enjoyed this trilogy about, Grace, Helen and now Christopher. Even though "Marrying Christopher" started off a bit slow, it wasn't long until I was drawn right into the story. I have to admit...last night I couldn't put the book down and read most of the night away until "The End."
I read these three book in this series back-to-back. It was a fun joy ride following each characters own personal story. However, this can be read as a stand-alone book, but so much better if you read the other two first.
This book is a part of my Nook library, and I enjoyed it enough to award it 4 'Marrying' stars.
