The Marriage Machine

The Marriage Machine

(The first book in the Londo Chronicles series)
A Novella by

After a planetary cataclysm nearly wipes out the human race, a new world emerges in the Anglo Territories. In this stark new world, man learns to survive by adhering to a strict set of rules and arranged marriages. The sun rarely shines. Food is scarce. Love is a vanishing ideal. 

In a handful of days, Elspeth Shutterhouse must step into the marriage machine, which will dull her ambitions and join her forever to a complete stranger. She would rather be sent to the Norsea work camps than be turned into a baby-making drone. Instead of following the dictates of her repressive society, Elspeth puts everything on the line to destroy the contraption...never guessing she will come face-to-face with the one person who could stop her:  handsome Mark Ramsay, a man far above her station.

Jules Verne collides with Jane Austen in this truly different novella by award-winning author Patricia Simpson as she introduces her new series, The Londo Chronicles.
