I’ve often expressed how often I enjoy stories about marriages of convenience. I think there is something to be learned from this stories that often end in happy endings–mainly a love-filled marriage. The character frequently choose to bless their spouse and fill needs, which ultimately demonstrates them choosing to love this person that convenience brought them together with.
**I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
Join nine brides of convenience on their adventures in a variety of times and settings gone by—from a ranch in California…to the rugged mountains of Colorado…to a steamship on the Mississippi…to the dangerous excitement of the Oregon Trail…into high society of New York City. No matter the time or place, the convenient brides proceed with what must be done, taking nuptials out of necessity. . .and never dreaming that God might take their feeble attempts to secure their futures and turn them into true love stories for His glory.
I found this collection to be fantastic! This might just be one of my favorite collections that have been released so far. So often, novellas have too much story to be told within their pages and that makes them feel rushed or too contrived. Not so with this collection. I found most of the stories in this book to have well-developed characters and plot for the number of pages, and rarely did I feel like the story was rushed. There’s a bit of everything in this collection. The stories are set from the East Coast to the West. Mail order brides or parents interfering. Marriages as a result of a will or some for the simple act of needing additional help. This is a wonderful collection and one that I can highly reccommend.
