Outskirts Press, Inc. is Pleased to Bring You Gentle Journey by Elaine Bach


Plantation, FL, June 26, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. is pleased to bring you Gentle Journey by Elaine Bach. In this dazzling debut novel, Ms. Bach spins a pulse-pounding romantic adventure set against the backdrop of Regency England. It is the tale of Eden Barrett, a young woman who wishes to bring about social reform using her artistic talents as a painter. With a desire to forge her own path through life, she spurns marriage as a sure way for a female in English society to become a slave to another:

“I can’t see myself forever submitting to the will of another, except God’s will, of course. The decision to marry may be the last decision a lady is ever allowed to make, and she’s usually coerced into that from the cradle by society. I don’t look forward as you do, Mary, to childbearing and childrearing and all the duties of home and hearth. Where is the time to think and plan, much less paint? You know I wish to be active in social reforms as well. What man would stand for that?”

When her plans go awry, Eden is forced to find employment, and takes on the role of governess in the home of Colin Ashton, Seventh Earl of Edmund. She hopes to pursue her interests on her own time, but her beliefs and the choices she makes cause her to butt heads time and time again with the handsome Lord Edmund. Will he send her away, concerned that the headstrong and willful Eden will have a negative influence on his sister? Will Eden be able to ignore the stirrings of her own heart as she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the intelligent and chivalrous lord—especially when it seems Lord Edmund’s interests lie with his beautiful neighbor, The Honorable Cassandra Bradley, a woman much more suited to his station.

Gentle Journey is a beautifully written work in which lives are transformed in an unforgettable journey of adventure, passionate emotions, and enduring love. It is a good, old-fashioned, inspirational romance with an independent, intelligent, sensitive, and warm heroine and a commanding, thoughtful, chivalrous, and thoroughly romantic hero. Elaine Bach has accomplished a romance that rises above the genre, one that displays an intimate knowledge of the needs of the human heart. We look forward to her next novel, also set in the romantic Regency period.
