Book Review - Sixteen Brides By Stephanie Grace Whitson
When i got this i was sorta worried cause how would a book follow sixteen brides? it baffled me so i just kept it on the pile of books for a bit. but i picked it up and it was really good. honestly it was hard for me to follow a lot of the time but towards the end it was really good. it did make me sad cause i wihed there was more to it. but such is life. i guess i have to read more from stephanie whitson to see what is up. but this was a good old timey story it was again hard to follow but it was pretty good nonetheless.
here is the description:
"Sixteen Civil War widows living in St. Louis respond to a series of meetings conducted by a land speculator who lures them west by promising "prime homesteads" in a "booming community." Unbeknownst to them, the speculator's true motive is to find an excuse to bring women to the fledging community of Plum Grove, Nebraska, in hopes they will accept marriage proposals shortly after their arrival! Sparks fly when these unsuspecting widows meet the men who are waiting for them. These women are going to need all the courage and faith they can muster to survive these unwanted circumstances--especially when they begin to discover that none of them is exactly who she appears to be."
