    5 Stars Out Of 5
    Excellent Novella Collection

    Linked by the premise of a bottle with the inscription "spero" (hope) as set up in the prologue, these are novellas of faith and love set in different historical times. As the bottle is found and the inscription deciphered in each novella, the meaning of it's message becomes clear.

    As so often happens when I read these collections, I find that the stories by the authors that attracted me to it are quite good, but that some other author whose name and writing I am unfamiliar with somehow manages to have contributed my favorite of the novellas. While each of the stories is well-constructed and engaging, it is Maureen Lang's The Forgotten One that just barely edges out the others.

    This is a solid set of novellas that will be gratifying reads for those who enjoy Historical Fiction with themes of faith, love, devotion, and of course, hope. While I found that waiting for and wondering about how the bottle would be incorporated in each story was a bit of a distraction, I did enjoy the conceit and plan to reread these novellas in the future.

    This review refers to an e-galley read courtesy of the publisher, through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

    The message in a Bottle is a book of love (where you have a Viking who is taken prisoner but is kept taken lovingly care of by an Irish princess.), romance ( Abigail wanting to fall in love and marry a man that would let practice medicine), adventurous(General Sherman had tons of Southern mill workers were displaced what did they do?)., boundless (the stories of geography and time period), enlightening (the superstitions and ideas that the people had for medicine and for their beliefs in each of their time periods.) and all of it floating in a bronze bottle going from Scotland, New York, Georgia, and California. Starting in 1715-1890. This book is awesome and each story is better than the last. It is so worth it. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This is a great collection of romantic tales all connected by, as the title suggests, a message in a bottle. Traveling through different centuries, the stories are created by 5 talented authors. Two authors were new to me, Gilbert and Dykes. Now, I have added even more books to my to-read list!

    It was quite fun to read pages a bit purposefully rough at the edges. It rather feels as though you are reading parchments which have been circumventing the globe.

    A bronze bottle featuring the word Spero (hope) is featured in each of these five stories spanning the centuries from 1170 to 1890. Each story was unique and it is hard to pick a favorite! The main characters in each story were well-written. Each female protagonist was an exceptionally strong woman. I recommend this romance collection to others. I received my copy of The Message in a Bottle Romance Collection from the authors. This is my honest opinion.

    Oh my gosh I loved this book! I gave it 10 stars. I read a LOT and I put this on my top 10 list of keepers.

    It opens in Ancient Ireland with a Monk under attack - trying to save manuscripts, putting a message in a bottle. Beginning in Ireland is a great way in itself to hook me - then each tale is so very well written. They all have a strong Christian message and although they share the same bottle with a message (added to along the way), each is unique with journey of its own. I would love to read a continuing story of each one. There is a big gap between the timelines and we dont know how the bottle got from person to person. Its not a short read so youre given lots to get lost in. This was one that I did not want to end!
