An Anglophile at heart, she runs away to England every chance she gets, under the guise of research. Really, though, she’s eating excessive amounts of scones while rambling around a castle.

    The following are the titles and authors in The Courageous Brides Collection: Compassionate Heroism Attracts Male Suitors to Nine Spirited Women:

    The Healing Promise by Johnnie Alexander, The Doctor's Woman by Michelle Griep, An Everlasting Promise by Eileen Key, Love on the Run by Debby Lee, Hidden Courage by Rose Allen McCauley, The Encumbered Bride by Donita Kathleen Paul, Mountain Echoes by Jennifer Uhlarik, Letters from Lucy by Jenness Walker andThe Battlefield Bride by Renee Yancy.

    I enjoy novella collections for a variety of reasons, and this one did not disappoint. One reason I enjoy novellas is because I can read them quickly and finish them easily. Once I start reading, I hate to stop until I have finished the book! This collection was especially enjoyable because I found several new authors as well as authors well-known to me.

    Each of the stories is set in the mid to late 1800's and gives a fascinating view of life during that era. They also deal with social and societal issues facing powerless groups.

    Historical fiction is one of my favorites, and when combined with messages of faith, they become even more pleasurable to me.

    ******************Forewarning******************

    The last story, The Battlefield Bride, very realistically portrays gruesome wounds of warfare and the resulting primitive surgeries during the Civil War.

    I received this book fromNetGalley.However, I was under no obligation to post a review.

    A novella collection with some stand-out stories

    This is yet another good historical fiction novella collection from Barbour with nine stories of grief, courage, and (gasp) riding astride. Stories of farmers, Indians, cattle drives, rustlers, frontier doctors, Pony Express riders, Pinkerton agents, criminals, and greedy land-grabbers, along with a romance between former slaves (unfortunately not one of the stand-outs), a cute kid here and there, and some dime store novels to boot!

    5 of the 9 stories stood out to me - those by Johnnie Alexander, Eileen Key, Donita Kathleen Paul, Jennifer Uhlarik and Jeness Walker.

    If you enjoy historical fiction set in the American West, there is likely to be several stories that will appeal to you. If you enjoy stories that include characters' spiritual journeys, you will enjoy this even more.

    This review refers to a review e-book copy read, courtesy of the publisher, through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

    I won this in a giveaway and one of the authors (Rose Allen McCauley) sent it to me in exchange for an honest review. This is the first of this type of collection I have read. There are a bunch of them published by Barbour Publishing. I've got a lot of them lined up to read in the near future. These stories grab your interest and hold it throughout. The characters, story line and settings are nicely developed for short stories. I loved each story enough that I kept wishing each one could be expanded to a full length novel. These are all new authors to me, but I will be following them with their own individual work. Can't wait to get into another collection like this. WONDERFUL! Recommend to any and all.

    Novella collections often provide instant gratification for those seeking to read favored authors, but they also pleasantly introduce a plethora of writers who rarely publish full length manuscripts. "The Courageous Brides Collection" is no exception and is a splendid example of why these groupings can work to everyone's advantage.

    Having read and appreciated books by Johnnie Alexander and Michelle Griep, their contributions to this volume, "The Healing Promise" and "The Doctor's Woman"proved to be well written and easily enjoyed. (no surprise there) While continuing to read, stories written by (new to me) authors Rose Allen McCauley and Renee Yancey, "Hidden Courage" and "The Battlefield Bride", added characters and story lines to the over all theme that demonstrated skill and creativity, bringing social issues of the late 1800's alive on the page. The same could be said for every one of these novellas.

    All in all, this is a collection that comes highly recommended! I appreciated receiving a complimentary copy from one of the authors in exchange for my honest opinion

    This is a great collection of novellas, 9 in all, that are set in the late 19th century. 'Compelled by compassion and bravery, these women take action beyond expectation, attracting the attention of eligible bachelors. Christian fiction, all of them. I especially enjoyed Michelle Griep's contribution. I love her writing and Donita K. Paul is very good, too. The others I had never read before. Great summer read.
