    I'm honestly not sure why I requested this book - Im not typically a big fan of novellas, though I have read a few that were well written, they always feel too short. That opinion will definitely be reflected in my review. There were a couple times that I really wanted to skip to the next story, but despite that, I did read all of this book. I would kind of like to be able to review each story separately, because there were a few that I really enjoyed, while others I could have done without. But then this review would be extremely long, so in lieu of that Im going to do my best to give my overall thoughts and impressions.

    I actually did enjoy a few of the novellas in this collection, though probably half of them drove me crazy. I often felt like I was missing something, that too many things were being left out. This is why I dont read novellas that often, unless they are part of a series. Actually, Kristin Billerbecks story is part of a series, though I have no idea which one. I think it is probably a little tack-on for fans who wanted to know what became of the last sibling/cousin. Im honestly not sure why it was included, since I missed so much from having not read the other books.

    Overall, the authors all did a good job and each book has a sweet romance, along with an interesting spiritual aspect. A couple of the stories had very heavy spiritual themes that sometimes overwhelmed everything else. Its very rare that I would like less of a spiritual note, but I could say that for a couple of the novellas. It probably would have been just right for a full length novel, but in this case, it was too much.

    Three of the stories actually go together and I think they may have been part of a set, prior to this collection. Something I would like to note, in case anyone else is under the impression that these are new novellas: they are all reprints, the newest being from 2004. It probably wouldnt have bothered me as much, had I realized that sooner, but because I didnt, every little thing drove me crazy. Most of them felt rather dated, though they are purported to be modern. I found this to be frustrating. I would have liked it much better, if the authors had gone over them and updated a couple things (for example, almost no one uses film in a camera, or goes to a film shop anymore, and most people have email and know how to use a computer). One of the nice things about this collection though, is that the characters dont have as much modern technology and therefore arent interrupted by smart-phones or tablets.

    Most of the book is a blur in my mind, with the stories running together. I definitely wouldnt recommend trying to read this in one sitting, or even two. This is something else that bothered me. Many of the characters werent unique enough to make them stand out in my mind. A couple of them are memorable, but the others are very stereotypical. I wanted each novella and their characters to catch my attention and imagination, but because most of them are probably less than 100 pages, it doesnt allow much space for character development or descriptions.

    I can honestly recommend this book to anyone who really loves novellas. If youre not much of a fan, like me, then I would suggest passing this one over. Or maybe just read one or two at a time, when you need a quick read between books.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.
