MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK The Alaskan Brides Collection is five historical fiction story written by five four amazing authors. One author writes two of the stories. The stories in this collection the authors, and a blurb about each story are as follows: Golden Dawn by Cathy Marie Hake…. Living on her twin brother’s Alaska claim, Meredith Smith regularly refuses marriage proposals that give her little hope for being more than a maid and a cook, but it is the neighbor, Ian Rafferty, who offers only Christian friendship who intrigues her most. Will secrets from her past bar her from any chance at a loving marriage? Golden Days by Mary Connealy……..Amy Simons may be small, but she is tough and strong enough to survive Alaska’s worst—if only she can reach her father, a trapper in the wilderness. Brandon Rafferty hopes to escape the grief of losing his wife, but he didn’t expect to find another needy woman along the way, another woman who will depend on him for strength. Golden Twilight by Kathleen Y’Barbo……… Feeling exiled to her brothers’ homes in the Alaskan frontier, Fiona Rafferty’s one goal is to get back to civilization to enroll in medical school, not to find a husband as her father wishes. Can she make room in her dreams to include a man with a dark past—a man like Tucker Smith? A Light the Window by Tracie Peterson………. Julie Eriksson is finally fulfilling her dreams of bringing medical care to the Eskimos of Nome. Persistent marriage proposals from Sam Curtiss make her fearful of having to give up her dream and disappoint her deceased mother. Then an outbreak of diphtheria banishes such troubles from Julie’s mind. The only cure lies hundreds of miles away, across the frozen frontier. Destiny’s Road by Tracie Peterson……… Beth Hogan loses her husband in World War II and returns to Alaska with her two sons only to find their remote village overrun by soldiers and civilians coming to build the Alcan Highway. Then she finds a second chance at love when she meets August Eriksson. All of these stories are so well written and so wonderful, I wouldn’t even try to pick a favorite! Each story features a young lady with struggles of her own, trying to fulfill her purpose in life. I fell in love with each of the ladies, and I read each of these stories in one setting. And this is the awesome thing about this collection. The stories are pretty short, so if you don’t have time to read a full long book, you will love these. Or if you are like me, and just want something different and quick to read, you will love this took. I just can’t say enough about how awesome these stories are, and I don’t want to tell anything much, because I will give them away! But as you can see, the stories are written by four of the most amazing authors, so the stories have to be just as amazing!! And I can’t leave out the book cover because it is beautiful!! I love the ragged edges, the cover and inside flaps are so pretty, I have this and others in this series on my coffee table. This is truly a book that you will want others to see in your home, and it makes a really good conversation piece!! I received this book from the Barbour Books to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55

I have bought several other anthologies of this kind with works by the same author. They always contain stories worth reading again and again. I am really looking forward to this book.

Hit or Miss Anthology Beautiful and enlightening, the stories within The Alaska Brides Collection are more than just historical romances. They are an education on the settling in Alaska – from dog sleds to health outbreaks, the restriction of women at the time to how people handled the summer midnight sun. Every story brings a little aspect of faith, a little knowledge of life in Alaska in the late 1800’s. I’ve said it before but anthologies are always hit and miss for me. A couple of these were absolutely wonderful, one I flounced two chapters in and the other two were good. But that’s the joy in an anthology – you get a little taste of the writing from different authors and can then decide if you want to dive into their catalog of works for more. I absolutely will be checking out the work of one author and making a note to look into two more. 3.5 Stars to The Alaska Brides Collection. For five historical romance novellas from four authors, pick this one up. It’s a wonderful introduction to the work of the writers – you will definitely find a new favorite inside!
