“Mississippi Brides” by Diane T. Ashley and Aaron McCarver

Drama and Romance meet in this unforgettable collection. 

The Civil War Era is often seen in historical romances; I was impressed, however, with the freshness of this 3 in 1 collection.  Each novel presents a new generation of the same family, specifically, three generations of women.  I appreciated the variety of plots, but also that there was a thread, apart from the familial one, which linked the stories: first impressions can often be misleading. 

It is impossible to tell that there are two authors.  The issues faced and dealt with include: pre-Civil War tensions, what a Christian’s view of slavery should be, and the importance of a deep relationship with God.  Each woman’s family situation, character, and relationship with God is different, making each story unique and interesting.  A dose of humor and a dash of adventure round out each story.
