Book Review: Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands

Book
reviewThis collection of seven stories of love takes a new spin on the “mail-order bride” story-line.

The town of Turtle Springs, Kansas has lost a great deal of its men in the wake of the American Civil War, leaving many of the women fatherless or widowed. Rather than sit around and wait for things to get better, some of the women decide to place ads in papers back east, conduct auditions, and bring men to the town as husbands.

Each story, with its own author, has its own situation and story-line, but some characters appear multiple times in other stories, before we reach her own tale of finding love; it’s a fun way of gaining glimpses into the lives of these seven women outside of their own stories.

For a fun read set in a bygone era, check out Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands.
