Product Description

Only the brave-or foolhardy-would attempt a westward journey during the winters of the 1800's. But the promise of a new life is strong for those taking wagon trains, stagecoaches, or passenger trains to new settlements, as well as those using any excuse to run from their pasts, gain adventure, and find a place to call home. As Christmas approaches, will nine couples find new hope in romance, or will they have to turn back to where they came from?

In first grade, Janet Spaeth was asked to write a summary of a story about a family making maple syrup. She wrote all during class, through morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess, and asked to stay after school. When the teacher pointed out that a summary was supposed to be shorter than the original story, Janet explained that she didn’t feel the readers knew the characters well enough, so she was expanding on what was in the first-grade reader. Thus a writer was born. She lives in the Midwest and loves to travel, but to her, the happiest word in the English language is home.

    Tales of Christmas Romance

    This is a collection of historical stories of Christian romance that are centered around the Christmas holiday. The featured female characters are traveling westward toward a new life, leaving the past behind. Each story is written by a different author, and the themes vary as much as the authors' personalities. A strong Christian theme is woven throughout these stories of love and the ambiance of Christmas.

    These short stories make up a wonderful holiday collection of cozy reads. I thoroughly enjoyed picking up this book and reading a story in the evenings as I relaxed and became swept into the lives of these young women searching for change and new lives. I normally enjoy a full-length novel over a novella or short story, but I found it refreshing to enjoy a brief tale of Christmas romance. Pick up a few copies to share with friends, and keep a copy for yourself to enjoy with a cup of your favorite beverage. This would make a wonderful gift, a book to be kept on the coffee table or next to your favorite chair, to pick up and enjoy as time allows. I will undoubtedly read this book again as the holidays approach each year.

    I always look forward to Christmas stories and this collection just was not as great as I had hoped. Most of the stories/characters/outcomes were so predictable. I did not enjoy MaryLu Tyndall's pirate theme. I tried on two occasions to read this story, but just ended up passing on this story. I wished that there was more of a preview/excerpt of the stories in any collection before purchasing.

    I really just sometimes like to sit back and enjoy a shorter story. In the Westward Christmas Brides Collection we have a wonderful collection of stories by 9 different authors. I wanted to read this book most of all as one of my favorite authors, MaryLu Tyndall, had a short story in this collection. However, every story was delightful and I found more authors to put on my wish list. Each story is only about 40-50 pages long, but they are all so well told that it did not seem like I was reading a short story. The book itself is lovely and nicely laid out. With beveled pages and a beautiful winter scene on the inside of both flaps, it would make a very thoughtful Christmas gift to a reader in your life. I really enjoyed all these prairie romances and look forward to reading more in these collections. I received the book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.

    requested this book because I like to read Wanda E Brunstetter. I have never read the other authors, but felt like it would be a good book. The stories were all well written. Each had it's own unique setting and style. The common thread was Christmas and the west. Most stories were rather predictable as to the outcome, but so well written that it really didn't matter. My biggest complaint is with myself, as short stories are usually not my first choice. This was good enough that it really didn't matter. In fact, in a way it was nice as you could read a whole book in such a short time. I highly recommend this book. Well done and worth the time to read. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Christmas Bounty***** by MaryLu Tyndall

    Recently widowed Caroline Moreau manages her vineyard in 1855 Californiaher late husband's dream and care for their two children, 8 year old Philippe and his younger sister, Abilene. She struggles daily to keep the vineyard going, fight the vigilantes who want the vineyard and put food on the table. But finances are running extremely low. Praying for God's help in feeding her children Caroline takes them to the local market to buy food for the next few days with what little coins she has left. As they are about to leave for home a crowd gathers around a wooden scaffold. Someone is about to be hanged and Caroline hurries her children to their waiting buggy. But Philippe darts away into the crowd, holding onto Abilene she rushes to find him before the hanging.

    Dante Vega is a pirate and about to be hanged; he smiles and declares his innocence and asks what evidence is there against him. As they prepare to hang him, Dante asks for mercy. The magistrate informs him, there is no mercy for pirates Unless, according to our law one of these ladies agrees to marry you, he states. Surprising Dante and herself, Caroline yells, I'll marry him! Out of desperation for help and protection for her and her children Caroline marries Dante. Saved by this beautiful woman who is now his bride they leave town for her home. The only draw back he sees in his beautiful wife is that she is an American and Dante hates Americans. Caroline hopes he will help on the vineyard and keep the vigilantes away from them. But will he help her or leave her to fight them alone? Can she trust him? Could he really be the answer to her prayers? What plans does Dante have for Caroline, her vineyard? Can this unlikely couple find their way and become a real family? Will the vigilantes finally take over her vineyard and home leaving her homeless and penniless?

    MaryLu continues to surprise me with her writing. She has written another great story filled with characters that are real-to-life and keep you engrossed in the story to the end. Including many struggles we face today: fear, trusting others, forgiveness, redemption, faith and love. This is just one of the nine short historical romances in this book. Each story has characters that will capture your attention and warm your heart. Great stories all.
