    1 thought on “Alaskan Bride

    1. Alaskan Bride is so well written that reading it is like taking a master class in historical fiction writing The language and syntax of the time is there, but in a way that s still easy for contemporary readers to take in D Jordan Redhawk had obviously done a tremendous amount of research, but her world building is so elegant that information is simply conveyed throughout the story.While Alaskan Bride is a romance, I would argue that it s first and foremost a historical novel The romance that s [...]

    2. The Alaskan Bride is a little jewel to discover.It s set after the American Civil War, following a 22 years old woman who accepts to go in to the Alaskan district answering a wedding advertisement on a newspaper Instead of the promised husband, victim of an accident, she will come to live and eventually fall in love with his sister.It s a wonderfully written historical lesbian romance and the atmosphere is that of a pioneer life and of a great desire of two young women to find their freedom.The [...]

    3. Let me just say that I needed to read this kind of book and it was pretty much everything that I wanted it to be I haven t read many lesbian romances lately that have left me feeling much of anything, so it was great to rather unexpectedly stumble upon this book and love every second of it.Clara is an educated Bostonian who, at the age of twenty four, is labeled an old maid Eligible bachelors, especially in post Civil War America, are in short supply, and so she starts reading the matrimonial ad [...]

    4. Nice and exciting story, there is some getting used to the language because it is set around the gold rush The book ends where the romance blossoms and you crave for of Clara and Callie

    5. I really really liked this It s a very well written historical novel The romance develops slow and sweet The author does a good job developing the story in such a short book The setting was new for meSkagway, Alaska during the gold rush The lawlessness of the vast wilderness loomed large in this story It definitely left me wanting I can t wait to see where Clara and Callie s story goes from here Definitely worth the read I read some other reviews saying the language was difficult in the beginni [...]

    6. Set in the years after the American Civil War when finding a husband wasn t easy, Alaskan Bride is an excellent historical lesfic romance.Old maid Clara is an educated 22 year old from a wealthy Bostonian family Fed up with being pursued by businessmen her father s age, she answers an advert for a mail order bride and heads off to the Alaskan Territory.Unbeknown to Clara, the man she is set to marry dies in an accident, and his sister, Callie, writes to stop his bride setting off The letter cros [...]

    7. I am sure there are many people who really enjoyed this book, but I wasn t one of them At first, it was difficult for me to pinpoint why After some thought, I kind of figured it out It was the writing style I found it to be ponderous and stilted As a result, I was unable to get emotionally involved in the story I have never read this author before so I do not know if this style is her normal one, or one she adopted specifically for this story Obviously, it was a well researched style, which used [...]

    8. A great read and likely historically plausible D Jordan Redhawks is a sublime storyteller and she s proven it again.As a formal student of American history an informal student of gay history I d venture this book is as historically accurate as is possible for a lesbian novel without being completely tragic Read it, seriously.

    9. A good book with an enjoyable story, however I found the prose very flowery, and it was hard to differentiate between the two characters as their voices were very similar and their names also almost the same

    10. I was excited to finally come across a mail order bride story in lesfic one that involved 19th century Alaska, no less sounded awesome Throw in affluent 22 yr old femme from Boston meets gruff n hardened blond trapper in the wilds of the last frontier and I m so there Some might call this one a slow burn I say that s a euphemism for dull as dirt and no sex, lol Hell, there really isn t any intimacy at all Or romance, for that matter Not really To be fair, there is competent and descriptive writi [...]

    11. I love this book so much Clara is one of the best girls I ve seen in fiction and I just love her commanding presence with Callie The setting was also fresh for me, because I ve read so many modern day ff in bustling major cities I would recommend this book ten times over.

    12. Great storyI think this was a really good story I liked the characters and the way they slowly came together in the end.

    13. Loved it I love historical romances and this one has definitely made it to my top ten Not too much extraneous detail, just a nice love story Would totally recommend it.

    14. Loved thisa historical romance that sets the scene with pace to create a relatively quick read that still has the depth and character development that make a great read.
