    I couldn't even finish it The first story was pretty good, but the next few got worse with each one. I finally gave up and went to the end to write a review, but I didn't go far enough. I read the last few pages of the last story and thought perhaps I'd given up too soon, but my hopes were dashed again. I can't review each story since I didn't read them all, but here goes for the ones I did read. In the early to mid 1800's a good Irish girl comes to America to earn money to send home.

She ends up crossing the country to California to be a bride, yet spends months living with the man with no chaperone. In the mid-1800"s?? Babies were not born in hospitals until the late 1800's, and even then that was rare. Six month old babies do not pull themselves up to standing positions, and they're unlikely to be crawling either. At six months they would be doing good to sit upright on their own. This was a wasted purchase. At least it wasn't expensive.

    I was unable to read all the stories. I read My Sister's Baby. It sounded too much like one I had just read a few weeks ago. Different names, era & places. First of all if you like a short story that is clean you might enjoy this one. The second one had she was from Illinois in Chicago. Illinois is Not in Chicago. Chicago is in Il. She had a plantation in Mt. but Montana has farms & ranches not plantations. Plantations are in the south. If the author had left a point of contact I would have sent I was unable to read all the stories. I read My Sister's Baby. It sounded too much like one I had just read a few weeks ago.

If the author had left a point of contact I would have sent her an email instead of posting here. I don't believe in giving bad reviews because the authors work too hard and put too much of themselves into the storyline. There are good points but the inconsistencies didn't work for me. I really prefer a novel so it could just be my own personal taste but the short stories were too rushed even though the author had some good plots. I believe a little bit more research and better proofreading good make these stories a lot better. short stories in the boo

    I really enjoyed reading this book, had a hard time putting it down, it would have got a 5 star if not for the ending and different names for her husband in the beginning of the book for me, Theresa was left at the convent when she was a baby and only new that kind of life. One day they tell her she is going to travel west and marry a man who's wife died and has a 3 year old child. When she gets there and sees the man she is to marry the next morning she is not sure what will happen since no one I really enjoyed reading this book, had a hard time putting it down, it would have got a 5 star if not for the ending and different names for her husband in the beginning of the book for me, Theresa was left at the convent when she was a baby and only new that kind of life.

Mr. Forth is unsure about this girl and not sure if she will be like his previous wife. What will happen? Will Theresa grow to love him and his daughter? Will they accept her as she is?

    Many Stories The original book The Rancher's Brave Bride was a good book of a woman who was not allergic to hard work. Although her husband told her she did not have to, she pitched in where and when needed. Because of her willingness and alertness, she helped save their property from fire. This book contained many stories, very similar at times, about Amish, gold mining, and mail-order brides.

    This novel, like so many others, has failed to grab and captivate my attention. There are many different times that I can pick up a novel and cannot finish it at that time; however, I might be able to return to it at a later date. This is one of those, who knows, maybe next time it will be a game changer.

    Short but sweet for the Rancher's brave bride. Enjoyed the first story a lot. There were several bonus stories that I had read in other books already some I had not but I enjoyed the new ones.

    Great reading, so many short stories. I found myself not wanting to stop reading, each story was engrossing and engaged my attention. A definite thumbs up, with recommendations for not just this book, but to check out others from Faith Crawford.

    I thought it was an ok story, I was a smidge confused when Mr. Forth became Mr. Fisher and back again, but it was good story nonetheless.

    I gave this novella three stars, because even though it was good I wasn't satisfied with the end and how it ended abruptly. I gave this novella three stars, because even though it was good I wasn't satisfied with the end and how it ended abruptly.
