Louise M. Gouge has taken Melville's sweet, resigned girl and created a smart, feisty woman who captures Ahab's heart. Her characters and vivid writing replicate a unique era and place in American history. Elizabeth Oldham - Research Associate for the Library of the Nantucket Historical Assoc.
Before Captain Ahab encountered Moby dick, he met the woman who would capture his heart - Hannah Oldweiler. This voyage back to 19th Century Nantucket completes the portrait of the man who ruled the sea with an iron will, and introduces us to the woman who had a spirit and determination to match.
When Ahab becomes obsessed with settling a score with the great whale, Hannah is left alone to raise their son and to oversee her husband's estate. Waiting and praying for his safe return, Hannah is faced with loneliness - a deep longing in her soul that not even her husband can meet. Will Hannah become as independent as Ahab? Will she take her future into her own hands? Who will fill the emptiness in her heart?
Ahab's Bride is storytelling the way it ought to be! Louise M Gouge has raised the bar with a delightful tale of Hannah and the love of her life, Captain Ahab. From the first page readers will delight in every word, every scene, every moment... not only reading the story, but also living it. Ahab's Bride is a must read!
