"I'll build you a castle," Dunsmuir promised. He described the stained glass window - the coachmen and servants - the sparkling crystal chandeliers. None of it would be possible in Scotland, but in the New World there were fortunes to be made. This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in: romance history biography From the Irish princess, taken prisoner by pirates, who fell in love with one of her captors and settled in Newfoundland, to the ardent courtship of Alexander Graham Bell and his bride-to-be, Mabel, this book celebrates the passion, the pain, and the romance of Canadian lovers through the ages.
