Sixteen Civil War Widows respond to an ad. They all attend several gatherings ran by a land speculator, who promises that they’ll have a chance to own their own land.

The speculator has a different plan in mind. He brings to Plum Grove, Nebraska - a small struggling town. He hopes that’ll except marriage proposals from some of the Plum Grove single and widow men.

Some of them women announce that they are getting married when hours of arriving. Of course by the end of the book almost all the women are happily married.

“Sixteen Brides,” is an average historical romance novel. At the times, I found the book to be boring. There are too many characters to keep up with. The overall plot didn’t interest me. If you like this type of novel, you’ll probably enjoy it. If you have never read a historical romance, don’t start with this one. There are better books out there.

I would like to thank Bethany House for sending me this copy to review.

  1. You know at first, from the title, I thought all of the women were married to one man. Now that would have been an interesting plot.
