Will You Wait for Me?

PJ Watters, Elisabeth Johnson

Will You Wait for Me? is the third book to complete the trilogy of The Courtship of Lizzie Andrews. This intimate chronicle follows a young couple’s four-year romantic courtship that began in 1850. Lizzie Andrews, now 18 years old, was just 14 when she receives her first letter from Edward Jarvis Tenney. Both from prominent New England families, her suitor is a 20-year old Harvard graduate. He is also her third-cousin. Edward asks Lizzie to wait for him as he sails from New York on the maiden voyage of The San Francisco, a brand-new steamer. He is pursuing a future as an international shipping merchant so he can marry her and support her in the lifestyle to which she is accustomed. One hundred and fifty years after Edward wrote these letters, they were discovered in a dusty attic. Will You Wait for Me? includes the authentic and unedited letters. Lizzie’s great, great granddaughter, PJ Watters, creates a vivid description of Lizzie’s life and viewpoint based on historic events.
