When the steamer Continental sails into Puget Sound in the spring of 1866, it carries a precious cargo: mail-order brides whove pledged their futures to men theyd never met. Among them is Maddy Douglas, a beautiful, headstrong, rebellious fifteen year old determined to leave her painful memories behind and build a family and a fortune in an untamed wilderness. So begins the Blanchard dynasty, and an obsession shared by three generations of Blanchard women an obsession with the Seattle land known as Calebs Bluff that for the next century will divide wife from husband, mother from daughter, and brother from brother.Maddy marries Abel, the Blanchard shes pledged to. But she gives her heart to Caleb, his brother, whose wild romantic soul speaks to her own. Catherine shares her mothers fierce love for the Blanchard land. But to build an empire and safeguard Calebs Bluff, she sacrifices her marriage, denies her true love, and alienates her only daughter.Natalie runs away from Seattle to escape the Blanchards and find her own destiny as a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist. With it comes a last chance at love. But love is not enough, and destiny awaits her in the place she fled, on the Bluff that calls her home.

About the Author:

Jane Adams is the best-selling author of three novels and six nonfiction books which have been translated in foreign languages, selected by major book clubs, and adapted for television. Her work has appeared on line and in national magazines and newspapers, including Hers columns in the New York Times and Take the Challenge columns in New Choices Magazine. A journalist, speaker and social psychologist, she lives in Seattle.

From Publishers Weekly:

Seattle of the 1860s is a muddy, rough-hewn town when Maddy, a plucky 15-year-old bookworm, arrives as Abel Blanchard's mail-order bride. Put off by Abel's expansionist creed, Maddy silently sides with his brother, Caleb, a man more tied to the land and the Indians than to his white neighbors. Her hoydenish daughter Catherine grows into a surprisingly proper Seattle matron, but maintains a streak of love for the land that even eclipses that for her family. Only Natalie, Catherine's youngest, escapes the green confines of Seattle to become an award-winning photojournalist in World War II before returning to defend her heritage against greedy relatives. Adams (Good Intentions takes the reader smoothly through the familiar paces of pain and passion in an enjoyable, though not very distinctive, family saga.
