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.

This is my favorite Sandra Dallas book. I was drawn in by the character development and history of Georgetown, CO. Historical fiction readers will love the Bride's House.

The secrets & passions of three generations of women, set in Georgetown, Colorado. Surprising and a page turner with complex characters. Enjoyable!

Sandra Dallas' best book by far. Three generations of women; their loves, losses, and gains. One of the better books I've read in a while.
