Lucy dreamed of marrying Samuel, until she woke-up as his wife.
Samuel Wilson is dismissed after a disastrous third year at the newly created Harvard Medical School, ending his dream of becoming a doctor. Shamed by his dismissal, he returns to his Massachusetts north shore home where he avoids his former fiancée Lucy Simms and tries to dismiss all ideas of marrying her.
Lucy pretends Samuel’s rejection means little as she helps her family on their farm. An early New England blizzard brings challenges and death to her door. When it is over, Lucy lays in her cabin near death with only five-year-old Sarah to aid her. Samuel discovers Lucy delirious with fever and endeavors to save her from the fatal illness that claimed most of her family. Unwittingly he puts her reputation in danger. At his parents’ insistence, Samuel marries a barely conscious Lucy.
Lucy awakens to a reality more bizarre than her dreams. Sure that Samuel’s vows are coerced, she does everything in her power to convince him to annul the marriage. If only his kisses didn’t’ taste like fresh pressed cider, she would not waver in her resolve. But freedom is the only gift she can give Samuel, so he won’t be bitter in years to come, like her own father.
With the help of his mother and Sarah, Samuel sets out to prove to Lucy that the vows he took are permanent, even if the town flirt is trying to prove otherwise. Fortunately, Samuel has truth and love on his side.Lucy dreamed of marrying Samuel, until she woke up as his wife WAKING LUCY #historical #romance Lorin Grace Click To Tweet
