Summary
Dallas' novel traces the experiences of three generations of women who live in a Victorian Colorado house, from Nealie, a hired girl torn between two suitors; to motherless Pearl, whose grieving father sabotages her happiness; to proud Susan, who resolves to protect the house's secrets and legacy
Summary
In 1880's Georgetown, Colorado, seventeen-year-old Nealie Bent deals with lies, secrets, and heartache before choosing the man who will give her the Bride's House. Years later, Nealie's daughter, Pearl, grows up in the Bride's House. When the enterprising young Frank Curry comes along and asks for Pearl's hand in marriage, Pearl's father sabotages the union. But Pearl has inherited her mother's tenacity of heart, and her father underestimates the lengths to which the women in the Bride's House will go for love
