Product Description

In 1872, sixteen Civil War widows living in St. Louis respond to a series of meetings conducted by a land speculator who lures them west by promising "prime homesteads" in a "booming community." Unbeknownst to them, the speculator's true motive is to find an excuse to bring women to the fledging community of Plum Grove, Nebraska, in hopes they will accept marriage proposals shortly after their arrival! Sparks fly when these unsuspecting widows meet the men who are waiting for them. These women are going to need all the courage and faith they can muster to survive these unwanted circumstances--especially when they begin to discover that none of them is exactly who she appears to be.

    This book delivered. The characters were well-drawn and interesting, and also believable. I was able to get a feel for the cultural climate and the history of Nebraska in the early 1870's. Knowing people whose ancestors lived in Nebraska around that time made it even more real. There was humor as well as heartache, and I enjoyed every page.

    Wonderful book. The sort of book I am happy to read in the company of my children and will most definately let my daughter read when she is of an age.

    Each story was a delight and I very much enjoyed this book, just the sort of romance I have been looking for.

    I tend to enjoy reading historical fiction/novels in general, and this book was no exception. I appreciated the look into the circumstances of these women, homesteading "Creatively" shortly after the Civil War. However, what I enjoyed the most was the drawing of the characters. I think it was no small accomplishment that Stephanie Grace Whitson was able to weave a romantic story with not just 2 main characters but 4 fairly solid couples. It was a delight to read, with each chapter heading relaying a corresponding Scripture verse that added to the action of the story. Although somewhat predictable, there were a few surprises. I enjoy a fresh, clean, interesting read, and sometimes predictable is a nice change. ;) *Note~ I received a free Copy from Bethany House for the purposes of Review. I also downloaded the ebook version, and am happy to say that it is of the same quality as the print book~ cleanly written and edited! :)

    I should have realized (duh) that the title Sixteen Brides would translate to LOTS of characters. But, I finally had everyone identified. Well written; interesting. Would like to read something else by this author. rs
