Series Description: Six Brides for Six Gideons

What would happen to six young brothers, if, for reasons beyond their control, they were separated as young children? Picture this life problem back in the mid-nineteenth century.  If the parents walked out, abandoning the boys–or if they simply died–could be no one near about would know about their kin. Where did they come from? Who are their people?

With all those new westerners playing their cards close to their chests, could be nobody knew their real names, much less who to contact in case of an untimely demise.

.

Children Worked

Tiny boys would’ve been fostered by family–maybe. If that didn’t work out maybe some kindly woman (her husband’s decision) would take the little tykes in. At least until they could be counted on to help work on the farm like her own children.

The older boys would’ve been put to work right away, earning their keep. Boys were expected to do the work of men by the time of early adolescence. Girls were trained from their earliest steps to assist Mother and other women and girls with every housekeeping chore from gardening to tending the stock to employment in factories.

.

How will they find one another again?

As the Gideon boys grow into manhood, all of them wonder about their childhood family. Some remember their name but little more. Some recall a parent’s name. How will they, with the resources of the late nineteenth century, find their roots?

.

Brides for all?
Series Description: Six Brides for Six Gideons

Yes. Six Brides for Six Gideons. And yes, I’m planning seven titles. The answer to the math question is on this page. I hope you’ll enjoy the role that their wives play in bringing the lost brothers together again. Each lady plays a different role, and each helps in her own sweet way. I hope you’ll watch for these unique expressions of character in each story.

Each Gideon will have their own One Great Love come along at the least-opportune moment. Each of their love stories are complete and told without a hint of a cliffhanger during their own tale (note the list on this page includes which couple is featured in each title). When the spotlight turns to another Gideon brother, the former hero and heroine become secondary characters in the other tales.

Each book stands alone (at least through No. 3) as we meet and become acquainted with (and enjoy the happily ever after!) three of the Gideon brothers. Books four through six will complete the series as the brothers reunite and rebuild their family story.

.

And Then What Happens?

Surprises and disappointments are offset by joy. “Truths” evaporate in the noon-time heat and light of discoveries. More than one shock awaits them, and more than a heap of trouble. It seems the family may have dissolved because of malicious behavior.

Can six brothers, reunited after far too long, reconstruct the story of their parents’ lives? As the pieces fall together and memories of the eldest brothers work with recollections of those who knew their parents, it seems the Gideon family had more than six boys. If they can find her, somewhere, they have a kid sister.

Now far more than an inheritance hangs in the balance: Justice. Truth. Honor.

Can they solve the mystery of what happened–and why–before it’s too late?
