"Melissa Jagears is a stand-out talent! Her fresh new voice is strong, stylish, and makes A Bride for Keeps a page-turner for anyone who fancies a stirring love story." -Rosslyn Elliot, author of Fairer Than Morning and Sweeter Than Birdsong "A Bride for Keeps treats readers to an engaging, prairie romance...delivering a heartwarming, satisfying read." -Maggie Brendan, CBA bestselling author of The Heart of the West and The Blue Willow Brides series. "Melissa Jagears has penned a tender tale of a mail-order bride who takes both the groom--and herself--by surprise when love comes softly...quietly... to heal their broken hearts." -Julie Lessman, author of Love at any Cost "A Bride for Keeps is just beautiful. It put me in mind of Janette Oke's sweet prairie romances but with a bit more edge, which I found compelling...I loved it." -Mary Connealy, author of Fired Up Everett Cline will never humiliate himself by seeking a mail-order bride. Not again. He's already been jilted by three mail-order brides and figures a wife just isn't in his future. However, a well-meaning neighbor hasn't given up on seeing him settled, so she goes behind his back to bring yet another woman to town for him. Julia Lockwood has never been anything more than a pretty pawn for her father or a business acquisition for her former fiance. A mail-order marriage in faraway Kansas is a last resort, but she'll do anything to leave her life in Massachusetts and the heartbreak she's experienced there. Although Everett doesn't see how a beautiful, cultured woman like Julia could be happy sharing his simple life, he could really use a helpmate on his homestead. Determined to prove she's more than just a pretty face, Julia agrees to a marriage in name only. Faced with the harsh realities of life on the prairie and hesitant to explore the tentative feelings growing between them, can Everett and Julia ever let each other in long enough to fall in love?

Abandoned by his mail-order bride, Silas Jonesey has fought an uphill battle to recover from a pattern of poor choices. Now his prayers for reconciliation have finally come true and his estranged wife has contacted him with her whereabouts. Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she'd been deceived about her intended groom, she's now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she'll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony--until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy's father. Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony's wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever? "An author who keeps you guessing about how the couple will get together until the very end, Melissa Jagears's writing contains her trademark wit and a fresh spin that turns everyday situations into extraordinary ones." --Naomi Rawlings, author of Falling for the Enemy

Impatient to meet her intended groom and help him grow his general store, mail-order bride Eliza Cantrell sets out on her travels a week early. But her plan goes sadly awry when her train is held up by robbers who steal her dowry and Axel, her groom-to-be, isn't even in town when she finally arrives. Axel's business partner, William Stanton, has no head for business and would much rather be a doctor. When his friend's mail-order bride arrives in town with no money and no groom in sight, he feels responsible and lets her help around the store--where she quickly proves she's much more adept at business than he ever will be. The sparks that fly between Will and Eliza as they work together in close quarters are hard to ignore, but Eliza is meant for Axel and a future with the store, while Will is biding his time until he can afford medical school. However, their troubles are far from over when Axel finally returns, and soon both Will and Eliza must decide what they're willing to sacrifice to chase their dreams--or if God has a new dream in store for them both.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem PEN / Faulkner Award 2012, dem Prix Femina Etranger 2012 und dem Albatros-Literaturpreis 2014. "Auf dem Schiff waren die meisten von uns Jungfrauen." So beginnt die berührende Geschichte einer Gruppe junger Frauen, die Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts als Picture Brides von Japan nach Kalifornien reisen, um japanische Einwanderer zu heiraten. Bis zu ihrer Ankunft kennen die Frauen ihre zukünftigen Männer nur von den strahlenden Fotos der Heiratsvermittler, und auch sonst haben sie äußerst vage Vorstellungen von Amerika, was auf der Schiffsüberfahrt zu wilden Spekulationen führt: Sind die Amerikaner wirklich behaart wie Tiere und zwei Köpfe größer? Was passiert in der Hochzeitsnacht? Wartet jenseits des Ozeans die große Liebe? Aus ungewöhnlicher, eindringlicher Wir-Perspektive schildert der Roman die unterschiedlichen Schicksale der Frauen: wie sie in San Fransisco ankommen (und in vielen Fällen die Männer von den Fotos nicht wiedererkennen), wie sie ihre ersten Nächte als junge Ehefrauen erleben, Knochenarbeit leisten auf den Feldern oder in den Haushalten weißer Frauen (und von deren Ehe-männern verführt werden), wie sie mit der fremden Sprache und Kultur ringen, Kinder zur Welt bringen (die später ihre Herkunft verleugnen) - und wie sie nach Pearl Harbor erneut zu Außenseitern werden. Julie Otsuka hat ein elegantes kleines Meisterwerk geschaffen, das in ebenso poetischen wie präzisen Worten eine wahre Geschichte erzählt. 'Wovon wir träumten' verzauberte bereits die Leser in den USA und in England, stürmte dort die Bestsellerlisten, wurde von der Presse hymnisch gefeiert, mit dem PEN / Faulkner Award ausgezeichnet und für zwei weitere große Literaturpreise nominiert; die Übersetzungsrechte sind inzwischen in zahlreiche Länder verkauft.
