After waiting four years for her best friend to return from sea, Wren Cromwell's dream of building a life with Tate Kennedy has wilted during his unexpected absence. Then, just as suddenly as he departed the mountain of their childhood, he returns, bringing with him tales of Norway's icy fjords and his time aboard ship on the North Sea. As spring unfurls around them, so unfolds a new hope in Wren's heart, and a new chance at love on the horizon. But with Tate's longing for exciting voyages still alive, will he vanish to the high seas again, or will this land he's returned to, and Wren's steadfast love, be enough to nurture his adventurous spirit?

From Christy and Carol Award-winning author, Joanne Bischof, comes a newly repackaged novella once featured in the historical compilation, Heirloom Brides.

Something New follows in the grand tradition of all books by Joanne Bischof. You will feel the rolling of the ship in the storm; smell the wildflowers in the garden, ache with the labor of felling trees. And you will be drawn into a story full of longing and hope, written in a language which is rich and compelling.

I love Wren’s innocence and sweet, gentle ways. Her love for Tate started back when they were both children and she tagged along behind him as he went from adventure to adventure.

Tate had always loved Wren. Even when he was thousands of miles and an ocean away, he never stopped thinking about her. Everything he did was motivated by his love and the goal he had of returning to her and giving her a home.

Prepare to have your heart melted in this beautiful story of love and sacrifice.
