Nine authors submitted their novellas for this collection and put together quite a fun read. There are a couple of series included in this collection, and books I have read before, but I still enjoyed the stories. Beginning in the seventeenth century with a girl kidnapped and impressed into indentured servitude and running to the Civil War and the Westward Expansion with a midwife who wants to move west after a misunderstanding with a patient's brother, this collection shows how these women found love in most unexpected ways.
The characters have such beautiful personalities that are well developed in spite of the shortness of the novellas. The settings only add to the winsomeness of the stories, and the plots are well-paced. This is a perfect book to read when you just want to fill a few stolen minutes and still read a full story.
Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a dream to call your own.
My thanks to Barbour Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.
