The Ghost Bride, a Fresh Spring Read

Unique, Fresh, Captivating

A young girl is asked to be the bride for a wealthy family – the catch is that she will also be a widow as her intended groom died several months ago.

In the late 1800's in Malacca, a Chinese influenced culture, the young Li Lan has learned that the wealthy Lim family has asked her father if she will be a Ghost Bride. The young son and heir to the Lim fortune has died and in old tradition the Lim family wants someone to marry their son as a way to placate his spirit. Li Lan knows that she does not want to be a Ghost Bride and yet she also realizes that the marriage would elevate her family status and fortune.

The Ghost Bride is a novel about tradition, family and ghosts. Li lan has to figure out what she wants for her future and if she can live with the choices that she makes.
