Say I do : mail order brides( Visual )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Say I Do chronicles the stories of three 'mail-order brides' from the Philippines now living in North America. In order to escape lives of poverty and to support their families, these women uprooted themselves to marry men they did not know. Upon arriving in their new land, they found themselves isolated in remote regions. One woman arrived in a small town in the dead of winter to find herself living in a camper with no running water. She soon discovered that her husband was a violent man. With no one to turn to, women like this were at the mercy of their husbands -- men who searched on the internet for women with 'traditional family values.' The men had been unsuccessful with local women whom they felt had too many freedoms and were 'spoiled.' What lies ahead for these women is uncertain. The lucky ones may find stability. The less fortunate may suffer terrible consequences. All of them are desperate enough to take the risk
