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.

    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.

    Seven Brides for Seven Mail Order Husbands

    Turtle Springs, Kansas lost almost all of its menfolk to the Civil War. Now the women, who have been struggling since the war ended, have devised a plan to bring men into town. They have sent newspaper advertisements telling of husband auditions that will take place in Turtle Springs all over the country. It works! Men are coming into town from all over. Are they all honest? Do they have the women's best interests in mind? And what of the ones who aren't looking for marriage who find their way to town? Can love find them also? These are seven stories that are fun and lighthearted and that will bring a smile to your face.

    In Abigail's Proposal, Mayor Abigail Melton hires Josiah to be the town sheriff after one brief interview. She never bargained that she would find love in the process. As they work together to keep the peace and keep the interviews going as they should, they get a little more than either was expecting.

    In The Kidnapped Groom, two young boys kidnap Sam as he is passing through town. They are determined to help their mother find a husband and think he will do just fine. When Sam actually meets their mother, he almost wishes he could be the father they are looking for.

    In A Clean Slate, school teacher Birdy Green is not looking for love. She is not even participating in the auditions, except to help her friend find someone. When Drew Cooper comes to the schoolhouse looking for learning, he finds more than he ever bargained for.

    In Sunshine of My Heart, Debbie and her family have not lived in Kansas long and are trying to make a go of their new prairie home. When she meets Zack at the husband auditions, they immediately take to each other. Zack comes to their small homestead and assists her father with breaking ground for planting. Will he plant his way into their family and lives also?

    In Come What May, Chardy, the local merchant, is at the end of her rope. She has been raising her four brothers since her father died in the war and she is desperate for some help. When the school board comes to her and says the boys can't stay at school because they are in too much trouble, she doesn't know what to do. Luke, her former fiance, who came back from the war missing a leg, agrees to help her with the boys. Can they discover their former love in the process?

    In Dime Novel Suitor, Caroline is also unsure how to handle her brothers, sisters, and the inn/restaurant left to her after her fathers death. She longs for help but doesn't go to the interviews. She is too busy working to attend them. When Britishman Barden shows up at her door, she assumes he is late for the interviews. He is merely looking for employment. However, they soon find that he can work for her and love her.

    In Louder than Words, Jane, who is half Indian, wants to find a husband so that her family will return to Turtle Springs and stay. She agrees to show JR Lockhart around town so he can interview people about the husband auditions. As they slowly fall for each other, she wishes that they could have a future. But, he wants to move to California and she can't. So where does that leave them?

    These stories are fun and enjoyable and if you enjoy historical romance, these are a good bet. I received a free copy of this book for my honest opinion from Net Galley.
