Diane L The Jane Peart series Brides of Montclair appears to have a numbering problem and not all books come up in the series. I believe the numbering problem stems from book 5/6 which may have at some point been published separately. Yankee Bride/Rebel Bride is now published as a single book and my daughter-in-law says neither section is a book by itself.

The description of
is for the combined book while there is no description at all for

Later books show the series title "Brides of Montclair" along with the book's number in the series on the lower part of the cover. The numbering reflected on those titles assumes Yankee Bride/Rebel Bride is book 5, not 5 and 6.

I believe the correct order for these books to be:
1. Valiant Bride
2. Ransomed Bride
3. Fortune's Bride
4. Folly's Bride
5. Yankee Bride/Rebel Bride: Montclair Divided as a single book
6. Gallant Bride
7. Shadow Bride
8. Destiny's Bride
9. Jubilee Bride
10. Mirror Bride
11. Hero's Bride
12. Senator's Bride
13. Daring Bride: Montclair at the Crossroads 1932-1939
14. Courageous Bride: Montclair in Wartime, 1939-1946
15. A Montclair Homecoming

I don't know how to go about verifying and then possibly cleaning this up.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments I can see that the books were published in parts, but I can't find any indication that they were numbered separately in the series when published in those parts. I can find a lot of verification that the combined book is numbered 5 and the next book after is numbered 6, so I have switched the series around to show this.
