Sagebrush Knights, a novella collection by Erica Vetsch, contains four.
About the Stories
Journey along with the four Gerhard sisters as they head to Wyoming Territory in search of husbands and discover that happy endings are not ready-made.
Evelyn arrives in Wyoming with a secret and a grudge, only to find her prospective groom holds a secret, too. Jane vies for the attention of her workaholic husband who is bent on saving his ranch even if it means losing love. Gwendolyn’s would-be husband dies, leaving her to the will of another man. And Emmeline’s knight-in-shining-armor herds sheep instead of cattle.
Will love prevail, or will their journeys have not so happy endings?
Mail-order bride stories are my all-time favorites, so when I learned that Sagebrush Knights includes four of them, I pre-ordered the book right then. I knew from having read Erica’s full-length novels that she’s a talented storyteller, so I was certain I’d enjoy her novella collection. And I was right.
The four sisters who head to Wyoming have different personalities, but they all four possess determination and the desire to make their marriages work. Each sister is thrust into an entirely different situation, with the four stories taking place concurrently. Although Erica has a limited number of pages in which to tell each story, she does a great job creating well-rounded characters and engaging plots with all the appeal of a full-length story.
The conclusion brings all the stories full-circle, leaving the reader heaving a satisfied sigh. Those who are enjoy mail-order bride stories and like the shorter length of a novella will enjoy those in Sagebrush Knights. I certainly did.
