Sixteen Brides by Stephanie Grace Whitson

The lives of sixteen widows and one young boy looking for adventure are forever changed as they are brought together by their search for a new life out West.  However, all is not what it seems, and the widows soon find out that they have been tricked into becoming mail-order brides.  Have they failed in their quest or will they succeed in establishing a new life, maybe even a better one, on the Nebraskan prairie.

I was a little worried about this book at first, fearing that sixteen simultaneous romances would get tangled up in my mind.  My fears were soon put to rest, however, when several of the women agreed to arranged marriages, allowing me to become fully involved in the lives of the others.  I really enjoyed the plot of this book and even found myself learning a few interesting facts about life in the 1800s.

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.
