Synopsis (from Goodreads): It all started with an ad in a mail-order bride catalogue . . .
I have another book written by multiple authors for ya'll! This was a fun read! I found it rather humorous, actually! This collection of novellas from some fantastic writers is a unique collaboration that leaves the reader light-hearted and amused.
Basically what happens is that there is a "mail-order-bride" catalogue circulating around old America. It's usually filled with widows, single-parents, and people with a daunting past that they can't seem to escape. The founder of the catalogue, however, has a way of pairing people together in such a way that they are completely unaware that they are looking for exactly what they thought they weren't looking for until they meet. He actually takes their letters to each other, and the man who doesn't want a "bible thumping" bride suddenly needs a "godly woman" to mother his daughter. Whew! You can imagine how that goes.
I thought this was a really unique project! Kudos to these amazing ladies who came together and brain-stormed this collection into existence. It's a fun, easy read. Sometimes the stories seemed a little repetitive, but aside from that I really enjoyed it!
