Sixteen Brides

Author: Stephanie Grace Whitson
Genre: Romance
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Type: Historical fiction
Number of pages: 348
Time period: 1800's
Main characters: Quite a few, actually.
Exciting events: Several!
My overall opinion: Women are taken out west, being told by a deceptive man that they can get their own land and homestead. Most of them are widows. However, it is discovered once they get there that the scheming man has "sold" them to men as brides! A very exciting story. :) It's based on actual happenings, though the characters are fictional.
