I'm a dedicated fan of American historical romance and have been reading books like these for many more years than I like to admit. If mail order bride stories make you giddy, as they do me, then this is the collection for you! Every book in this collection is an exemplary example of why this genre of historical romance is so special to me. It's a time when manners and decorum were always expected and attraction between the sexes was expressed with shy glances and courtesy. Can you even imagine traveling across the country to an unknown town having agreed to pledge your life to a stranger you've met through a letter or two? In this day and age it's a daunting proposition! I love escaping my everyday concerns to indulge myself in these stories that are researched so they are historically accurate, with lots of heart warming romance that is oh-so-appealing in every way. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
