Editorial Reviews

I loved this book!! This book was a great multi-generational collection of short stories. Each story had me more in love with Fredericksburg and the Zimmerman family. It's a must read for any Christian romance lover.
 

It's an enjoyable escape for a few hours for anyone who likes following a series through generations.

I liked how this book started with historical stories and worked towards the present and for the most part followed some of the characters from earlier stories. I like when they do this as it makes the short stories feel more like one book and its easier to get into each story when they share some details.

I love these little series of books all in one. This one is four generations of school teachers who come to find love in Fredericksburg. It is little love stories that delight the heart and remind you of the goodness of God. Perfect for reading by the pool on vacation.

Each story was short and sweet. I enjoyed learning about some of the German history and their community, as well as learning about Sunday Houses and what they were.

    Sundays in Fredericksburg is a 4-in-1 collection that follows several generations of families living in Fredericksburg, Texas. We read these stories through the perspective of four different women from four different time periods. These stories revolve around the Sunday Houses that German communities often used.

    Our first story follows Amelia and Hank. Amelia has arrived in Fredericksburg to teach at the new school. When three orphans, unwanted by their uncle, come to school, Amelia falls in love with them. Hank also cares about these children and Amelia and Hank must find a way for these children to be provided for.

    The second story takes place after the end of World War I. Coming home from being a nurse, Mildred is quickly put back into nursing when the community is struck with influenza. Nelson, an out of town doctor, has come to help the town doctor. Mildred and Nelson work together to stop this epidemic, but when one of them gets sick, the other doesn't hesitate to help them to return to health.

    The third story takes place after the end of World War II. Trudy loves taking photographs and longs to explore the world. When Bradley, an out-of-town journalist arrives, Trudy allows him to rent their Sunday House as he works on his journaling. As they begin spending more time together, Trudy finds herself drawn to Bradley. But is it Bradley or the idea of traveling the world that intrigues her the most?

    In the fourth story, we are in the present day. Gwen is working in her aunt's antique store and Clay is in town for a class credit assignment. Both of them are staying in Sunday Houses and they enjoy spending time together.

    Each story was short and sweet. I enjoyed learning about some of the German history and their community, as well as learning about Sunday Houses and what they were. While I enjoyed the stories, I just didn't like how everything happened so fast. I realize that these are each novellas, but I still felt like there was not a lot of development and for me, to really enjoy a book, I need more development. However, this was still an enjoyable book and each story was fun to read.

    I received a free ecopy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions stated are my own.

    This combination of novellas about love in Fredericksburg is very inspiring.. Each couple lived in a different time period and it surprised me that while the stories are romance they were very historical and showed the changes in history and how it affected the livelihood for these German settlers very accurately.. There is only one thing that never changed in the decades that passed-true love, its a constant. I was absolutely taken with each story, and i appreciated authors for letting few months pass from first meeting and actual attraction to the declaration of love and actual wedding even though its a novella and everything is expected to move too fast. I think the initial chemistry and gradually growing love rings more of reality... Great job authors!!! Cant wait to read more of your books... I got this book for free from Nethalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This book contains four stories that take place in Fredericksburg, Texas and spans from the 1800's to present day. Back in the 1800's they had what was called Sunday houses and farmers who lived many miles out of town would own a small weekend house so that they could come into town for Church each week. The Sunday homes serve as the back drop for the stories and follow a few families through out the years.

    What I liked: I liked how this book started with historical stories and worked towards the present and for the most part followed some of the characters from earlier stories. I like when they do this as it makes the short stories feel more like one book and its easier to get into each story when they share some details.

    What I did not like: The last two stories where okay but I did not enjoy them as much as the first too.

    Over all this as an enjoyable book and a solid add to the Romancing America series.
