About the Book:
Immerse yourself in the discomfiture of five couples who are virtual strangers when they agree to wed for practical reasons. Emily marry Steven for the sake of his children. Regina’s family has arranged for Diedrich to come from Germany as her groom. Chiquita is bartered in marriage to Eduardo to cover her father’s debts. Pearl accepts Jason’s hasty proposal to help him run his family’s farm. Sarah Jane is forced to marry Painted Hands, a trail scout, for propriety’s sake. Can romance develop despite awkward beginnings?
If you are familiar with Barbour historical romance, then you should have a perfect picture in your mind about this book. It is a sweet easy read about characters who pray, obey the rules and find both happiness and religion by book's end. In today's world we get to pick our own spounses and the divorce rates show that we do not alway do a great job of it. In yesterday's world marriage was an economic necessity for some and many made marriages with non-romantic beginnings work. I enjoy trolling Amazon for low-cost mail order bride stories and this book contains several completely separate stories for fans of sweet Christian romance. Grade: B-
