Brides of the Old West: Five Romantic Adventures from the American Frontier

by Darlene Franklin, Peggy Darty, Sally Laity, Nancy Lavo, Donita Kathleen Paul

Christian Historical romance, with strong examples of faith and redemption throughout. Not short stories (which is unusual for a collection), each had something in it that had significance to me personally - lesson and comfort.

All strong women who encounter tough obstacles in their journey, each has a connection with God that is learned or strengthened along the way.  Some teach their new partner, some are taught.  All of these stories are of value to the reader, and written so that you don't want to put it down or have the book end.  I highly recommend this book. These are new authors to me. I couldn't pick a favorite if I had to. Would make a great graduation present!

From the Publisher:
Ride along on five romantic adventures that play out on the great American frontier. Stubborn young women are determined to survive their great challenges—despite the men who try to help. Suzanne must save the ranch. Blanche learns to captain a riverboat. Amanda pushes across the plains to Oregon. Deborah stands up to hostile enemies. Tildie must keep three children safe in the wilderness. Will these challenges be their undoing or the start of something wonderful?
