About this Book
1800s mail-order bride catalogs facilitated many happy marriages. Here are the stories of four couples who owe their wedded bliss to creative editing by The Hitching Post publisher.
“And Then Came Spring”–Margaret Brownley
When mail order bride Mary-Jo Parker arrives in town she receives the shock of her life; not only is her fiancé dead, he left behind an eight-year-old son he neglected to mention. But the biggest challenge of all is the boy’s way-too-handsome uncle.
“An Ever-After Summer”–Debra Clopton
Widower Matt McConnell wrote his ad with no room for misunderstanding–Bible believers need not apply. But then Bible-thumping Ellie shows up on his doorstep. Matt’s so desperate for her help that he accepts.
“Autumn’s Angel”–Robin Lee Hatcher
Luvena Abbott’s privileged childhood didn’t prepare her for the hardship she now faces as an adult, especially when it comes to being the guardian of her nieces and nephew. Marriage seems the only answer to her dilemma. Clay Birch hopes to change the hurdy-gurdy house he won in a poker game into the finest opera house in the Northwest, but he’ll need help to do it. Could this unlikely couple actually be the perfect match?
“Winter Wedding Bells”–Mary Connealy
David Laramie is looking for a woman to care for his children. In exchange he’ll make her financially comfortable for life. But no woman wants to marry a dying man. Then Megan responds to his ad. It seems his “edited” letter contained no mention of him dying.
This is one of those books that is great to check out several new authors at once. I had only read one of these authors before, and I didn’t care for the book. So I wanted another chance to check her out as well as the others. Each story was well written and entertaining. Although not a heavy spiritual message each story did contain a character that needed to learn more about God or how to trust Him once again. Due to the nature of the book there are not a lot of pages to develop a story so they all move pretty quick. I really liked the editor of mail-order bride catalog.
This is the type of book where you know the ending but each other does a great job getting you there. Even the author I didn’t like before gave an enjoyable story that makes me want to try her again.
Disclaimer: I did receive this book free, however, I won it in a give away. But once again I am giving my honest opinion of the book.
