Immigrant Brides

I like reading collections of novellas based on a theme and The Immigrant Brides Collection is a great read, especially on a hot summer day. These novellas deal with girls who have immigrated to the United States from various time periods in history. Indentured servants, displaced refugees, arranged marriages, marriages of convenience all form the plots of this collection with all of the brides finding true love.

Each author has crafted a story of entertainment for those times when the reader has only a small bit of time to read.

Capucine: Home to My Heart by Janet Spaeth
The Angel of Nuremberg by Irene Brand
Freedom's Cry by Pamela Griffin
Blessed Land by Nancy J Farrier
Prairie Schoolmarm by JoAnn A Grote
The Golden Cord by Judith Miller
I Take Thee, a Stranger by Kristy Dykes
Promises Kept by Sally Laity
The Blessing Basket by Judith Miller

Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and an immigrant bride with a story to tell.
