A Soldier’s Lady is a collection of four historical novellas about four different women who found true love with a solider.
Susanne Dietze, Janette Foreman, Gabrielle Meyer, and Lorna Seilstad take us back in time to the North American Frontier. When Native Americans were undecided (and sometimes battled each other over) whether to accept those settling on their land or drive them out. When fort life was primarily male and the task was protecting those who fell within their sphere. When women had little worth beyond their ability to cook and do laundry, teach children or host a social function. A challenging time in our nation’s history.
And for the four women in these stories, a challenging time in their lives. As independent as each were, they lived in a time in history when their survival depended on a man in their life. And the need to be married warred with the desire to be loved. For these four women, they have a chance at both.
I enjoyed these stories. Each one was unique even while the men in the stories was a soldier of some fashion. The women faced different life situations that put them in great need. All of them fought for what mattered most to them.
If you’re looking for a small collection of historical romance stories, try this book. I hope you’ll like it as much as I did.
