"Come along on a romantic journey, jam-packed with all the angst of marriages founded upon practical choices as well as coercion. Meet nine couples who barely know each other before they find themselves suddenly married--to please family, to stem the tide of gossip, to save the land--joined for life. But can love grow when duty comes before romance? In this exclusive collection, authors have collaborated to demonstrate the power of faith within the vows of marriage. From England to the American West, in train cars and jail cells, love is being sown--the couples are just taking unconventional journeys before getting to reap the harvest."--Back cover.
