THE BRIDEGROOMS by ALLISON PITTMAN

Within these pages we have a story about Vada, the young girl who has become the head of the home, raising her young sisters. Vada was only eight when her mother vanished. Vada's father is the town doctor and when a baseball comes in contact with one of the players in town, fan fair begins and love is on the horizon.
We watch Vada and her sisters grow into women of Christ, women that their mother would be proud of. We see how these sisters react to one another through their spats and quarrels only sisters understand. We see how their father tries to raise his daughters to his best ability and we see what happens when the Bridegrooms come to town waking these sleepy young girls.

I had a hard time connecting with this one. I wanted to enjoy it so much, but found it slow and I really could not relate to any of these characters.

If you are a lover of "Pride and Prejudice or Little Women" this will be one you enjoy. It is of that same time period and will take you back to a different time and place.

This book was a gift from Multnomah WaterBrook Press for its review.
