Two Brides Too Many

Author: Mona Hodgson
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
May 2010
ISBN: 978-0-397-45890-2
Genre: Inspirational/historical

Kat and Nell Sinclair were separated from their family when their father took a job in Paris, forcing the two girls to become mail order brides in Colorado. Their prospective grooms sent money for their tickets, but then neither one showed up to meet their brides-to-be.

When Kat discovers her groom is a womanizing drunk, she is quick to put him in his place, but then the two sisters are left wondering what to do. They only had enough money to pay the rent on their small boarding room for a few more days.

With Nell’s groom absent, and Kat’s unsuitable, what will the women do to find their place in this small frontier town?

TWO BRIDES TOO MANY is Ms. Hodgson’s debut novel, though she does have lots of writing credits to her name. There are four Sinclair sisters, though I guess the other two will be featured in another book.

It was interesting following Kat and Nell to Colorado and watching these two well-bred women struggling to make sense of their situation when their intended didn’t show and they had to make a way of their own. The events they found themselves in were nothing less than an adventure. $13.99. 320 pages.
