The Homestead Brides Collection: 9 Pioneering Couples Risk All for Love and LandLucie's Review:

A wonderful collection of novellas with a common theme yet each one is different and diverse.

Some of the stories are about second chances and finding love again, with glimpses into life on the prairies of Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas, and highlight the harsh realities of surviving on the plain.

I loved how there were strong heroes like Lasso in This Land is Our Land and Cyrus in A Palace on the Plains. And great humor like in Homestead on the Range.

I really liked the preacher's wife in Flaming Star, and how she was such a good friend. I also loved the Scandinavian flavor of stories like  Proving Up & Waiting on a Promise.

Prairie Promises was one of my favorites, about a young man who comes to rescue his mother from the wild west and ends up finding the things in life that he didn't even know that he was missing.

Overall, this was a wonderful collection, filled with stories of strong women, that celebrate the pioneer spirit and the people who called the prairie their home.
