Descripción

It all started with an ad in a mail-order bride catalogue . . .

This charming bouquet of novellas introduces you to four Hitching Post Mail-Order Bride Catalogue prospects in the year 1870, all eager for second chances . . . and hungry for happiness. Year in, year out, they’ll learn that love often comes in unexpected packages.

“And then Came Spring” by Margaret Brownley

Mary-Jo has traveled halfway across the country to meet her match, arriving just in time for his funeral. Returning home seems like her only option until her would-be brother-in-law proposes a more daring idea.

“An Ever After Summer” by Debra Clopton

Ellie had no idea she’s not what Matthew ordered. And what’s wrong with being a “Bible thumper” anyway? She’s determined to show him she’s tougher than she looks—and just the girl he needs.

“Autumn’s Angel” by Robin Lee Hatcher

Luvena would be perfect for Clay if she didn’t come with kids. But kids are a deal breaker, especially in a rough-and-trouble mining town. ­ e trouble is, there’s no money to send them back . . .

“Winter Wedding Bells” by Mary Connealy

David’s convinced he’s not long for the world. He needs someone to mother his boys when he’s gone—nothing more. Can plucky Irish Megan convince him to work at living instead of dying?

    This was a super cute book! I loved that each of the stories were short and it made the book seem to fly by. I also loved how each story was written by a different author. I loved all 4 of the stories and I was sad when each of them ended. I think my favorite one was "Winter Wedding Bells" because I couldn't help but laugh at David and how he was convinced he was going to die. All the stories are super sweet and I can't wait to check out some of the other books the authors have written.

    Excuse me while I gush.
    I LOVE this book.
    Now, let me go back and tell you exactly why.
    My time being limited, I'm careful to only choose books I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy reading. There have been times where I've been let down a little, and that comes with the territory. I'm not a big reader of anthologies ~ I don't know why, but these are relatively new to me.

    I'm hooked.
    This book, with each individual story written by four different, fantastic authors, is a keeper. This will warm any historical romantic lover's hearts who's time is limited, and who doesn't want to sacrifice quality of story. Each short story has its own drama, its own issues that keep the readers interest and will prod them to read on. Way past their normal bedtime.
    Heroines that won't quit. Heroes that you'll sigh over. Cowboys, the wild west, and true love. Does it get any better than that?!

    Meet Mary-Jo, in And Then Came Spring who stomps into her fiance's...funeral ~> how's that for different, huh?
    In An Ever-After Summer, you'll find yourself cheering Ellie on while taking on a stubborn mule that you know you're going to love. And it's not just her husband, either!
    Luvena, in Autumn's Angel, will make you wonder if this beauty is indeed cursed with bad luck, as well as a sweet heart, and, then you'll meet my ultimate hero and favorite story,
    Winter Wedding Bells with cute and plucky Megan who's fiance is convinced he's going to die. But she's too feisty to let him.

    This book is fabulous. I have not only spent a super enjoyable day reading each story, but I have added three very talented authors to my favorite authors list. I say three, because Mary Connealy already was on that list. Way toward the top...
    I highly recommend A Bride for All Seasons.

    *My thanks to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, who sent me a copy in exchange for a review. I was not required it be positive. It's just really that good.*

    A Bride For All Seasons is a compilation of four authors. All stories are based on the services of The Hitching Post Mail Order Bride Catalogue and its editor Melvin Hitchcock. Now Melvin had the habit of changing words in his applicants letters, quite often he did a lot of embellishing. The four novels are all based on Melvin's plotting, but maybe God had more of a hand in these couples lives than Melvin??Can you imagine, arriving and meeting your Fiancé, and learning he is dying, and needs you to be a mother to his children? Or how about arriving and finding he isn't there to meet you, and they are having his funeral?? Or maybe you arrive and he is so happy and can't believe your luck, beautiful woman, but what are those? Children?? No Children!! Then their is a sweet fellow who lost his wife in childbirth, and he never wants that pain again. He needs a mother for his darling little girl, but definitely wants no "Love"!Travel along with these wonderful, can't put down till the end stories. I loved this collection, only wished there were more!!I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours and was not required to give a positive review.

    What fun I had, following the four brides in the A Bride for All Seasons as they set off to join the men who they were pledged to marry, who they had never set eyes on before. Although there are quite a few Mail Order Bride collections around, this one is different in that the editor of the catalog takes it upon himself to “correct” and edit not only the advertisements that are bought and paid for by the men looking for wives, but also their correspondence with each other. This makes for an amusing read for us, and dilemmas for the characters. Having these four well-loved authors under one title was a treat, and I would have likely been able to match the stories to the authors without the helpful hints of their names underneath the title of their story. Well written, all of them, bringing you as the reader into the scene with vivid color and heartfelt emotions. All four seasons are represented starting with Spring. A great way to spend the afternoon on these hot summer days in escaping the endless round of work that is calling you.I received this book free from Amy and Chris at Litfuse Communications Group and Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions stated are my own.
