Publisher's Description

Meet the faithful dreamers who helped build the foundation of the new American nation—from four brothers in Colonial Connecticut determined to make something of their lives, to a colony of Quakers in North Carolina resolute in their faith, to settlers in the northwest frontier staking their claim in hostile territory. Watch as nine romances develop and legacies of faith and love are formed.

Author Bio

Kristy Dykes—wife to Rev. Milton Dykes, mother to two beautiful young women, grandmother, and native Floridian—was author of hundreds of articles, a weekly cooking column, short stories, and novels. She was also a public speaker whose favorite topic was on "How to Love Your Husband." Her goal in writing was to "make them laugh, make them cry, and make them wait" (a Charles Dickens’s quote). She passed away from this life in 2008.


Award-winning author LAURIE ALICE EAKES has always loved books. When she ran out of available stories to entertain and encourage her, she began creating her own tales of love and adventure. In 2006 she celebrated the publication of her first hardcover novel. Much to her astonishment and delight, it won the National Readers Choice Award. Besides writing, she teaches classes to other writers, mainly on research, something she enjoys nearly as much as creating characters and their exploits. A graduate of Asbury College and Seton Hill University, she lives in Texas with her husband and sundry animals.

New Englander Carla Olson Gade writes from her home amidst the rustic landscapes of Maine. With eight books in print she enjoys bringing her tales to life with historically authentic settings and characters. An avid reader, amateur genealogist, photographer, and house plan hobbyist, Carla's great love (next to her family) is historical research. Though you might find her tromping around an abandoned homestead, an old fort, or interviewing a docent at an historical museum, it's easier to connect with her online at carlaolsongade.com.

Award-winning author, Jane Kirkpatrick is well known for her authentically portrayed historical fiction. She is also an acclaimed speaker and teacher with lively presentation style. She and her husband live in Oregon and, until recently, lived and worked on a remote homestead for over 25 years.
DiAnn Mills is a bestselling author who believes her readers should expect an adventure. She combines unforgettable characters with unpredictable plots to create action-packed, suspense-filled novels.

Her titles have appeared on the CBA and ECPA bestseller lists; won two Christy Awards; and been finalists for the RITA, Daphne Du Maurier, Inspirational Readers’ Choice, and Carol award contests. Library Journal presented her with a Best Books 2014: Genre Fiction award in the Christian Fiction category for Firewall.

DiAnn is a founding board member of the American Christian Fiction Writers; the 2015 president of the Romance Writers of America’s Faith, Hope & Love chapter; and a member of Advanced Writers and Speakers Association and International Thriller Writers. She speaks to various groups and teaches writing workshops around the country. She and her husband live in sunny Houston, Texas.

DiAnn is very active online and would love to connect with readers on any of the social media platforms listed at www.diannmills.com.
 

Lisa Karon Richardson is an award-winning author and a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Influenced by books like The Little Princess, Lisa’s early books were heavy on creepy boarding schools. Though she’s mostly all grown-up now, she still loves a healthy dash of adventure in any story she creates, even her real-life story. She’s been a missionary to the Seychelles and Gabon and now that she and her husband are back in America, they are tackling new adventures—starting a daughter-work church and raising two precocious kids.

TIFFANY AMBER STOCKTON has been crafting and embellishing stories since childhood. Today she is an award-winning author, speaker, social media consultant, and a freelance website designer who lives with her husband and fellow author, Stuart Vaughn Stockton, in Colorado. They have a daughter and a son and a vivacious Flat-coated retriever named Roxie. Her writing career began as a columnist for her high school and college newspapers. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Historical Romance Writers. Three of her novels have won annual reader's choice awards, and in 2009, she was voted #1 favorite new author for the Heartsong Presents book club. You can read more about her at her website.

Jennifer Hudson Taylor is an award-winning author of historical Christian fiction and a speaker on topics of faith, writing, and publishing. Jennifer graduated from Elon University with a B.A. in Journalism. When she isn’t writing, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, genealogy, and reading.

    Love the collections books, some favorite authors and some new authors! Some of the stories go together and some are stand alone stories which makes it more fun. I was touched by one of the stories that deals with Hemophilia, as my grandson has Severe Hemophilia A, before they knew much about the 'bleeding' disorder. Yes, he informed me that it is NOT a disease but a disorder! I can recommend this as a good read.

    A wonderful collection of novellas set across early America, from Colonial times up to the Civil War!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of settings and the interesting history behind each story, especially the first set which revolved around four brothers: a ship's carver, captain, baker and doctor. The following tale, set on Mackinac Island during the French Indian War was one of my favorites, with an English soldier torn between his duties and heritage, falling in love with a French fur trapper's daughter. The next few stories were connected by a Quaker family, who later helped runaway slaves. Found myself falling for the prodigal blacksmith in the second one, who finds his way back to faith and hope for a future. The next tale told from the first person of a freed slave was unusual, and worked well with the previous stories. The last novella about the midwife was my favorite of the collection, with a widow finding a new love and learning to face her fears.

    The insertion of faith, hope, redemption, love, and trust in God made this an inspiring set of historical tales. I savored each one, taking my time to read through them; this is a lengthy read, but quite enjoyable. Found a few new authors, and some delicious sounding recipes to try out from a Colonial era cookbook too.

    Recommend this well-written collection of tales from early America, especially for historical Christian romance fans. 4.5 stars

    (Note: The first four novellas were previously published as Colonial Courtships, and the last one appears in The Midwife's Legacy. Thank you to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for the book provided in exchange for my honest review.)

    First off, I love the book itself....the cover, the unique pages. I really enjoy getting my hands on these wonderful Collections. It is a great way to sample new-to-me authors before getting novel-length books written by them.

    In this collection, it starts out with 4 authors who weave a continued storyline together, beginning with Carla Olson Gade's Carving A Future. Let me just say that Carla grabs you from the start! I have read these first 4 stories and highly recommend them. I still have the rest of the book to read, but I am sure it will not disappoint. (If I need to amend my review later, I will)

    For now, I will say that these authors will have you seeking out other books written by them.

    So, grab a copy and get a taste of these ladies' writing.....then, seek them out and see what else they have to offer. Happy reading!

    I won a copy of this book and was under no obligation to write a review.....good or bad.
