This trio of books was made even more appealing knowing that all the books were from the same family, just generations later. I love history and Genealogy and the author Vicki McDonough made the Reed family come to life in my hands and mind. I would definitely recommend this book and I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.

The last story was my favourite because it shows so clearly the christian love between Carina and her slaves. all in all i enjoyed them all and would definitely reccommend the book to others.
IreneUnited States5 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyed It!May 15, 2014IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Each story was entertaining and well written. I liked that they all had the same author as it helped the stories seem more in line with each other. These stories are drama filled yet you will find parts to smile about too. They were all easy to read. Even though they were short you still get a good feel for the characters and find yourself cheering them on in their efforts to fix and get control of the situations in their lives. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I would recommend the book to anyone who likes short yet interesting Christian fiction stories.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
weatherlover1U.P MiAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5South Carolina BridesMarch 20, 2014weatherlover1U.P MiAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This three in one collection follows the Reed family. It starts with a boy being claimed as a Reed and the love the develops between the woman who brings him and his uncle. The 2nd story deals with a lost son who returns but can't remember who he is and the woman who rescues him.. The third story is a little more removed from the first two but deals with the death of a brother and the sister trying to keep things going and needing to forgive the man who killed her brother.
I enjoyed all three stories and liked how they tied together. The stories where enjoyable and interesting.
What I liked: The first two stories I enjoyed the most. The first story was my favorite. For a short story it has a good plot and I enjoyed the suspense as well. The 2nd story which dealt with amnesia was also good. I really liked how these stories flowed from each other. They where not really connected other than being the same family but it made the transitions easier. The stories where well written and even though they where short stories they felt like regular novels.
What I did not like: The third story was kind of odd. The climax of this story threw me for a loop and just felt kind of weird. I did not enjoy it as much as the first two.
Overall this was a good collection of stories. It really did a good job of mixing romance and suspense into an enjoyable choice of stories. I just was not as impressed with the third story. The main characters where a few more generations removed which left me a little confused about who was who at first. If you enjoy historical fiction this is a good pick.
