    These historical novellas share the adventures, misfortunes, and love stories of women who were held captive in various situations. Some came to America as indentured servants, suffering harsh fates. Some were held by guardians with evil intent. Some were accused of crimes. The settings of the tales go from the late 1600s to the 1800s and come from the West Indies, Australia, Europe, and America. The final one concerns an unscrupulous snake oil salesman's troupe, a situation I've never seen in a novel before. Women in those days had little recourse, and their fate was usually dependent on the men in control. Unfortunately, these seem too real. The authors did a good job. The characters appear authentic and make you care about them and root for them to escape their tragic circumstances. I received a copy from Netgalley. All opinions are my own.

    The Captive Brides Collection oh how each story stands alone. They each stand out and yet it Blends in. The stories are wonderful, the first story is about Temperance who was a prisoner and treated so very inhumanely by the prison guards-they knocked one of the girls into the icy cold water which brought the other women who where attached in as well and the guards just left them there to die. It was Edward who reached in and gathered her out of the water. He was mesmerized by her beauty and all she could say to him and it stuck and bothered him to no end was..............The next story is about was Maire who was told by her fiance but not fiance(you have to read the story) She was told by him he was going to America and in a year he would send for her. Well a year goes by and guess what happens-it might surprise you. The next story is about Verity who lives with her sister and brother-in-law and works her Hind end off in the towns Diner-well what we would call a diner-she has fallen for the town's lawyer and he comes in every day at the end of her shift to talk. Well she needs his service because all of a sudden the town's Sheriff comes in and....... Nah you all know I won't ruin it for you but it is intense, loving how he looks after her, sad how not everyone in her life does. The next is about poor Goldie who was born into the home of a brothel. The Madam wants her too....... Nope again you have to read the book to find out but it is unbelievable. She has two jobs to make it alone everyday. She into the pastor one day coming back from work and..... What happens? You have to read the book. Next comes the story of Charlotte who was related to a very bad man-her long-lost dad. He shafted several people out of their money and then he....... Nope I shall not tell you but it probably isn't what you think. Then because of what he did she....... As you know I won't ruin the story for you but it is simulating. Then the next one is about Moira who had a nasty Uncle who went and sold her like she was a piece of cattle. Then there was a very handsome man in the crowd who came forward and bought her for $10 and then he said to her he was going to....... Yep you have to read it and you will love it. next you have a story on the Underground Railroad, the main character Nathan and his dad are part of that. Nathan convinced Lattie to run and go on the railroad but there is one thing... He loves her. So, what happens is....... Yes, you guessed it you have to read the book. The next story is about Matilda she is a Bolter what is a Bolter? That's right you have to read the story. She meets up with a sheep herder, Henry who....... The last story is about JoJo who is, well let's say you have to read it to believe it. She was doing it when she met Cyrus who wasn't looking for love until JoJo came along and kiss them. She is in the charge of mr. grabber who is a grifter-and that is all the information I will give you on that one. All the stories are pendant lighting and full of Faith as it should be-Amen?

    What a great theme for a novella set! Deported, indentured, imprisoned, sold into slavery -- these captive brides must overcome untold difficulties with the aid of stalwart heroes determined to set them free. The kind of page-turners that held me captive and though I only planned to read one novella a day I ended up devouring the whole book in two days.

    Each story is only about 50 pages, but they still pack a punch and my emotions ran high. I'd whoosh a huge sigh of relief over the satisfying conclusion of one story only to have my heart jump back into my throat when I turned the page and started reading the next one. Intense situations, deplorable conditions and evil injustice rankled something fierce. And yet, despite the circumstances each heroine possesses an indomitable spirit which sees her through her trials and into the happily-ever-after of her dreams.

    Diverse stories written in distinctive styles make this a collection to cherish.

    My thanks to author Carrie Fancett Pagels for gifting me with a copy of this book.
