Mail-Order Marriage: 5 Historical Stories of Marriage Arranged by Letters Between Strangers
Lucie's Review:

5 couples find love through mail-order arrangements.

Cinda's Surprise finds Cinda in for more than a few surprises--her mail-order groom for instance. Whom so knows nothing of, until he appears on the doorstep, expecting to marry her! I loved how Cinda dealt faithfully with all of her surprises, trusting God to guide her choices.

His Brother's Bride finds Emily arriving, only to find that her intended has died. But his brother Cade, needs a mother for his young son Adam. And so she accepts the offer. I liked the way that they worked hard to make it work, and got to know each other naturally through raising Adam and working together.

Changes of the Heart is about Maura and how she sails around the world to marry Luther Buchanan. A heartfelt, realistic look at what happens when a couple is disappointed in the match, but allow God to work in their relationship.

Mail-Order Husband  is a lovely, humorous story, about Gabriel Hunter, a man unfamiliar with farming and prairie life, but who has read much about it, and is willing to learn. Lena Walker needs a husband and though she is skeptical, she gives him a chance. Gabe is good with her sons, and he is a man of strong faith, though he knows next to nothing about real farm work. The boys are quite funny in this book, and loved how Gabe and Len learn to love and respect each others for their strengths and weaknesses.

Forever Yours was one of my favorites, Daughtry marries Nicholas by proxy, so she begins to fix up the house while she waits be him to show up. A wonderful fast paced read, that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Overall, a lovely collection, including some that I had read before, and were previous published in other collections. If you like mail-order romance this is a great read!
