"Oh, what a book the story of my life would make!" —Louisa Boren Denny
The Beginnings of an Empire and the Story of a Remarkable Love. Louisa Boren journeys West to carve out a new way of life. Out of her rugged determination and deep faith comes an enduring love and the founding of one of America's greatest cities—Seattle.
Twenty-four and unmarried, Louisa is an unusual woman for the year 1851. And she knows what she wants—David Denny. An empire builder, David is a born pioneer and destined to be the founder of Seattle, Washington. But he is only nineteen...and younger brother to James, whose love for Louisa runs deep.
This first in Brenda Wilbee's best-selling Seattle Sweetbriar Series is a story of remarkable love and the conception and birth of Seattle, Washington.
