In The Bridegrooms, Allison Pittman portrays women during the middle 1800’s and their goal of trying to get bridegrooms. The lead character, Vada, finds herself in the predicament of finding out her youngest sister has a different father. The pain felt by the girls is from their mother leaving the family long ago with another man, and one year later dying of an illness before they could reconcile.

The structure of the plot is quite standard, with no flashbacks but some use of back story. The quality of relationships between characters is flawless, however. For example, Garrison and Vada’s relationship is shown well as they talk intimately, share their hearts, and grow as individuals and as a couple. The most unforgettable part of this book is when Vada, Garrison, and Hazel go to the Hollenden Hotel to meet Hazel’s potential love interest, only to find out that he was their sister Lisette’s father.

Vada’s main dilemma is realizing that she is like her mother. Even though she loves Garrison, she cannot stop thinking about another suitor, Mr. Lafortune. She chooses to fight the temptations of cheating on Garrison. She talks incessantly about how she is practically engaged to Garrison.

Vada is a very strong role model in the book for good parenting, because when her mother left, she took over the role of mother in the household. She reacts rationally with most characters in the book, and shows love, affection, and sympathy when needed.

Once I finished the book, my final view was that it was very well written, keeping me locked into the story until the conclusion. I recommend this book to any reader who likes romantic fiction with old fashion traditions of men and woman courting. – Sarah N. Finkenbine, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
