The Bride Ships series continues to bring all Clannes together.

A wealthy lady is put aboard a ship to escape an expected abusive marriage. Expecting to be chosen for a mere upper class work, Arabella finds herself washing dishes, starting a fire and baking cakes. Thus she becomes acquainted with the baker, a common laborer. She learns good character, kindness to others and helping the Indians is more acceptable than a position. She again becomes a Runaway Bride to escape another man who thinks only about himself.
