Publisher's Description

Seven women seek husbands to help them rebuild a Kansas town.

Meet seven of Turtle Springs, Kansas’, finest women who are determined to revive their small town after the War Between the States took most of its men. . .and didn’t return them. The ladies decide to advertise for husbands and devise a plan for weeding out the riff raff. But how can they make the best practical choices when their hearts cry out to be loved?

Abigail’s Proposal by Cynthia Hickey
When her father never returned from the war, Abigail Melton stepped into his role as town mayor. The town needs men, and she needs a husband—and she has a big idea how to find both—but her first duty is to hire a sheriff. And drifter Josiah Ingram will do just fine.

The Kidnapped Groom by Susan Page Davis
Riding through the Flint Hills on his way to Dodge City, cowboy Sam Cayford finds himself the kidnapping victim of two children. When he meets their lovely mother, Maggie Piner—whom the kids insist he should marry—Sam starts to question God’s plans versus his own.
 
A Clean Slate by Susanne Dietze
Schoolmarm Roberta "Birdy" Green won’t marry any of the prospective grooms flocking to town. After losing her fiancé in the war, the only love her broken heart can bear is for her students. But then she takes on a new pupil—Drew Cooper, one of the gentlemen drawn to Kansas by the advertisement for grooms.

Sunshine of My Heart by Darlene Franklin
Debbie Barker longs to bring beauty to her new home on the prairie, where her family moved after the war, and seeks a husband to help her father run the ranch. Zack Gage returned home from the war to a life in ruins—family dead and business bankrupted. He answers the mail-order husband ad to seek a fresh start. But neither Debbie nor Zeke know what they are doing when it comes to ranching. . .or love.

Come What May by Patty Smith Hall
Chardy Stevens is at the end of her rope. Between running her late father’s store and tending to her four younger brothers, she barely has time to breathe, much less look for a husband to help her. The boys scare off most of her prospects and throw Chardy together with her childhood friend Luke, a disabled veteran who seeks her happiness above his own.

Dime Novel Suitor by Carrie Fancett Pagels
Widow Caroline Kane is the proprietor of a restaurant and inn—and responsible for her five teenaged siblings. But she has no plans of finding a mail-order groom. Britisher Barden Granville IV is on a "cowboy holiday" when he finds himself flat broke in Kansas.  When he answers an old "help wanted" ad, Caroline misconstrues Barden is there as a potential husband. Will the beautiful and fiesty widow cause the new vicar to make Kansas his home?
 
Louder than Words by Gina Welborn
After years of writing abolitionist pamphlets and chronicling soldier life during the war, J.R. Lockhart is bored and jumps at the opportunity to investigate an advertisement for husbands for an article in Godey’s Lady’s Book. Jane Ransome would like to help the charming-but-oblivious-to-life-out-West man chronicle the courtships developing in town, but she has her own husband to find—one who will fit perfectly in her picket-fenced Kansas home.

    These delightful novellas deal with war widows in search of mates following the War Between the States. Abigail Melton, who took over her deceased father's role as mayor, advertises for potential husbands to come to this small Kansas town for interviews with seeking women. The results bring cowboys, a disabled veteran, an English nobleman, a reporter, and others seeking a new start. The tales of pain turn into life-changing events for those involved. I think the authors did a fine job offering variety and satisfying stories. Get a glimpse of life during this difficult period of history and enter into the town's life with the intriguing characters there. I received a copy through Netgalley. All opinions are my own.

    What a great collection of stories that all tie into each other and share some of the same characters. What a great idea of mail order husbands for war widows and how well thought out the way they would conduct their interviews. I really enjoyed this collection, as I had a busy week and was able to read one a day. Each author brings something different to the table in their writing style and research, but they all share the same Faith aspect.

    Patty Smith Hall deals with an amputee from the war in Come What May. She handles it well and the story draws you in.

    Carrie Fancett Pagels keeps you entertained with Dime Novel Suitor. Barden's secrets and things assumed between him and Carolyn had me chuckling. The descriptive words in this story have you feeling like you are there witnessing it.

    The Kidnapped Groom by Susan Page Davis had you falling for those kids with enough tenancy to help their mom out.

    I love the historical aspect of Louder Than Words by Gina Welborn. Bringing a mixed breed lady and her own hurts into the equation is very interesting. Watching her learn to open up makes for a great read.

    Darlene Franklin pens Sunshine of My Heart and that's what this story does. It brings sunshine into the Readers heart.

    Cynthia Hickey doesn't fail in Abigail's Proposal. Abigail is a winning character who acts as Mayor in Turtle Springs and advertises for the mail Order Grooms. She is a strong leading lady.

    A Clean Slate by Susanne Dietze is a story of friendship between Birdy and Frieda and how love can find you when you aren't looking.

    All in all this book is about strong woman who lives have been turned upside down by the devastation of war and how their Faith and ingenuity lead them to love.

    As with all novellas it leaves you wanting more, as they lack the depth of a novel. Perfect for quick reads. Impressive collection of stories.

    I received a complimentary copy. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

    It is 1866 in a small town in Kansas. How shall the town survive without the many men they lost to the War Between the States? A town meeting is called and the decision is made to advertise for mail-order husbands. They sent the word out after deciding that the men would be auditioned by the ladies, thus hoping to keep out those whose intentions were not pure.

    Each author has told the story of a different lady, some which have children, some who have siblings to care for and some who have never been married. There are those who learn that trust can be renewed, both in God and man.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories. Once again, these authors have brought history to life.

    Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands puts a little different spin on the usual 'mail-order' romance story. I looked forward to reading these novellas because of the twist in them being ladies writing off for husbands and not vice versa. The authors did a great job in that each story felt complete and not rushed. They are faith-filled and humorous, with amiable characters and engaging plot lines, providing a few hours of welcome entertainment at the end of a long day. While I enjoyed all of the novellas, I definitely had a favorite or two. I can highly recommend this collection to fans of historical fiction.

    I want to thank Gina Welborn for sending me a paperback copy of this book for review purposes. No compensation has been received.

    Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands is astounding yes amazing ya'll. I really don't know how to express in words how these stories were but here goes. You have stories of poor widows in a town of them who were made that way because of the war. They get together and send away for mail order husbands and one is the Sherriff. You have leadership to freedom , sadness to joyousness, kidnapping to freedom, miscommunication to communication, seeking to finding, loss to acceptance, misunderstanding to realization and unwanted ado to acceptance. This book is astounding and good - impassioned, judicious, kindhearted and it has such a kaleidoscope of emotions that it makes you feel like laughing, crying and well I could go on - each author has truly (and I mean this from the bottom of my heart) made me feel like a part of the town - a part of the story - you get so invested into the story because you are invested into the characters, you really do love the book within only a few pages - It got me pulled in immediately - and I loved it and so will you! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all the opinions expressed in this review are all my very own.
