    One thought on “Kansas Brides: Stranger's Bride/Never a Bride/Bittersweet Bride/His Brother's Bride”

    1. Don't be dissuaded by the size of this book - 462 pages. This was a great grouping of 4 pioneer stories in Cedar Springs Kansas. The book consists of 4 separate stories "Stranger's Bride", "Never A Bride", "Bittersweet Bride" and "His Brother's Bride" that read like a series but with unique characters in each story that were briefly mentioned in the previous stories. The first story "Stranger's Bride" was my favorite. You will enjoy the transformation with each of the couples Sara & Nathan, [...]

    2. 4 short stories. The first I thought was pretty predictable but they were pretty good. I liked that they weren't raunchy at all. They are spiritually minded and although I agree with much of the religious teachings, it's always interesting to view others take on religion and how people come to be "saved" and once they "become a child of God". HmmmI thought we are all God's children no matter if we "believe" or not. I did get the point though.

    3. A good friend of mine lent me this book. I haven't made any clear-cut opinions as of yet. The book was made up of 4 individual stories, each with a seperate pair of characters who went through the process of falling in love, and becoming true-Christians. I grew weary of the formulaic and repetative theme as I saw the constant pattern which gave up any hopes for some suspense. I wasn't happy that there were no diversions from inevitable endings. Sure, they each had a different "story" but as soon [...]

    4. I really liked this collection of short stories. They were longer than I expected them to be and they were so well put together. The development of the story and characters was so well done for a shorter length book. These are Christian, clean stories of love in the west. 2 of these stories were arranged marriage stories and one was of the villain in the first two stories changing he and growing into a kind person. That one was the only one I was a little irritated with. I just couldn't wrap my [...]

    5. The characters are interesting, but the stories all have this story line:The woman goes to work for / gets married to the man.The man has some other relative / servant living with him.They both have hang ups.They find out they are in love.One of the characters get's seriously injured.The doctor is called.When the injured person wakes up, the other confesses their love.In the Epilogue, the woman announces she is pregnant.

    6. This is really four books in one, with four separate love stories that are set in Cedar Springs, Kansas. The main characters from the stories reappear as minor characters in subsequent sections of the book. A very pleasant summer diversion!

    7. In our day when falling love is stressed and so much emphasis is put on the process, these romances are interesting cases of growing in love. Perhaps loving is a choice. Surely opening our hearts to loving in whatever situation we are put in is the first step as the heroines did!

    8. Really sweet stories. Probably the one I am most surprised I liked was the story of Mara. Did not really like her at first but her story was so good. Also really enjoyed the story of Jane and Cade with him being in love with her beautiful sister who just happened to marry his brother.

    9. Setting 1887, which is the time period that I usually enjoy. Interesting set of 4 stories. None of them really touched me, but it was something I could read a while and then put it down. I didn't feel I wanted to just read all night.

    10. This book is the most greatest book I have ever read besides temptation Love these kinds of books romance that is

    11. A great collection of sweet prairie stories. I really felt for character Mara in Bittersweet bride. This is a keeper on my shelf.

    12. very good! I liked how the couples stories continued to show n the other stories but not taking the focus off the main couple.

    13. These are delightful stories of three girls who face marriage is different ways and yes they all turn out good.
