Sixteen Brides Review

Sixteen Brides  -     
        By: Stephanie Grace Whitson
Sixteen Brides by Stephanie Grace Whitson

Description(from CBD)- In 1872, sixteen Civil War widows living in St. Louis respond to a series of
       meetings conducted by a land speculator who lures them west by promising "prime homesteads"
       in a "booming community." Unbeknownst to them, the speculator's true motive is to find an
       excuse to bring women to the fledging community of Plum Grove, Nebraska, in hopes they will
       accept marriage proposals shortly after their arrival! Sparks fly when these unsuspecting widows
       meet the men who are waiting for them. These women are going to need all the courage and faith
       they can muster to survive these unwanted circumstances--especially when they begin to
       discover that none of them is exactly who she appears to be.

My Opinion:  I loved this book!  She is a wonderful author and I've read some of her works before. 
       This book, like so many others, was hard to put down.  I found myself drawn in by the characters
       and wanting to know what would happen next.  This book has much suspense and lots of twists
       and turns that make you think.  Through it all is a Christian theme and each chapter is begun
       with a verse.

I highly recommend this book.
