A Bride for All Seasons

About A Bride For All Seasons:

It All Started with an Ad in a Mail Order Bride Catalogue . . .

Melvin Hitchcock of the Hitching Post Mail Order Bride Catalog isn't dishonest---not exactly. If he tweaks his clients' applications a bit, it's because he's looking out for their best interests.
This charming bouquet of novellas introduces four Hitching Post prospects in the year 1870, each one eager for second chances . . . and hungry for happiness. Year in, year out, they'll learn that love often comes in unexpected packages.
And Then Came Spring by Margaret Brownley
Mary-Jo has been unlucky all her life. But who would guess she'd travel halfway across the country to meet her match . . . only to find him dead!
An Ever-After Summer by Debra Clopton
Ellie had no idea she's not what Matthew ordered. And what's wrong with being a "Bible thumper" anyway? She's determined to show him she's tougher than she looks---and just the girl he needs.
Autumn's Angel by Robin Lee Hatcher
Luvena would be perfect for Clay if she didn't come with kids. But kids are a deal breaker, especially in a rough-and-trouble mining town. The trouble is, there's no money to send them back. . .
Winter Wedding Bells by Mary Connealy
David's convinced he's not long for the world. He needs someone to mother his boys when he's gone---nothing more. Can plucky Irish Megan convince him to work at living instead of dying?

My Take on the Book:

I really enjoyed reading this book.  It is four individual tales of Mail-Order Brides.  Each one is different and fun and I found it interesting to see how men and women relate, especially when they first meet.  There were a couple of the stories I would have LOVED to read more about -- they could have been a full book if they had been explored a little more fully.  I also loved that all four were connected by the Hitching Post Mail-Order Bride Catalogue!   I really can't imagine being a mail-order bride, but it's fun and interesting to read about them.

Another great thing about the book, is that while each story involves Christ... none of them outright, throw it in your face.  It makes this book a great one to lend to your friends who maybe aren't Christians but are open to reading a faith-based book.  

I would definitely recommend A Bride For All Seasons... for you, for your church library, local library, high school library and for your friends!! 

Enjoy!
