    Four Christian Historical Romances set in the early 1800s. I'm not usually a fan of short stories. I like to set my stakes and settle in for a long read. This book completely fulfilled that expectation. I enjoyed every bit of each story. Now, that doesn't mean that I didn't want to continue to read more. I'm hoping that there will be continuations of each individual story and they will all be series. Another book that I'm so glad I was able to read! Each girl has her own special situation, each has with a perfect ending.

    I just finished reading The Heirloom Brides Collection (various authors). The Heirloom Brides Collection contains four short historical Christian romance stories. Something Old by Tracey Bateman is set in Tuckers Creek, Kansas in 1880. Betsy Lowell is going to town with her grandfather, Pops to stock up on supplies for the winter or so she thinks. Stuart Fields runs the local general store with his mother. He has been entranced with Betsy since they were children. Betsy is very stubborn, determined, and prideful. Will Stuart be able to get past Betsys tough exterior?

    The second story is Joanne Bischofs Something New set in the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1893. Wren Cromwell and her family have been taking in lodgers since the death of her herbalist father. Their latest guest is Tate Kennedy who was Wrens best friend (and more). Tate left the community four years ago and has just returned. He is finally able to provide for Wren. Will Wren accept him back after all this time?

    Something Borrowed by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the third story in the collection set in 1881. Clara Rose Frazier and her father, Ezra have moved to a farm to start a new life. Clara wanted to get away from the town where everyone knew she had lost two beaus (because they would not accept her and her father). When her father gets injured, they need assistance on the farm. Clara finds help on the Klaassen farm. The Fraziers moved to Wilhelmina, Minnesota which is a large Mennonite community. Maria Klaassen volunteers her son, Titus to help out the Fraziers. Will Clara be able to overcome the past to have a beautiful future?

    The last story is Something Blue by Mona Hodgson. Darla May Taggart has finished her nursing training in Philadelphia and is returning to Cripple Creek, Colorado (set in 1900). Darla grew up in the town with her pastor father. Darla was rather wild when she was seventeen and is hoping to overcome her past. Darla is assigned to be a home care nurse. One of her patients is Nicolas Zanzucchi. He was burned on the back when a steam hose broke in the Mollie Kathleen Mine. Nicolas is raising his three daughters (Julia, Jocelyn, and Jaya) on his own. Nicolas has to stay still and not break open the scabs that have formed over the burns on his back. Darla is attracted to this heartwarming family, but will Darlas past come back to haunt her?

    The Heirloom Brides Collection is a lovely collection of stories. I give The Heirloom Brides Collection 4 out of 5 stars. The stories are all nicely written and easy to read. I enjoyed reading them. My favorite was Something Borrowed by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I liked the loving and warm Mennonite community. Ms. Sawyer really brought the characters to life. My least favorite was Something Old. I found it to be a very frustrating story. Betsy was made into this tough, stubborn, determined, prideful person who would rather sit in the snow and freeze to death than ask for help. I just found it to be overdone. Overall, the Heirloom Brides Collection are good stories. If you enjoy historical, Christian romance stories, you will enjoy The Heirloom Brides Collection.

    I received a complimentary copy of The Heirloom Brides Collection from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Something Old: Betsy Lowell loses her grandpa's watch only to find it was sold at an auction. Poor Stuart lost his heart to her long ago, despite her stubborn disposition. Can he get her to forgive him before she marries another?

    Something New: Wren Cromwell gets a surprise when her childhood friend, Tate, returns unexpectedly bearing gifts from across the sea. Will she accept his special gift or send him packing?

    Something Borrowed: Moving from a big city to a small town to start over with her father on a rundown farm, Clara Frazier has many obstacles to overcome, especially when she needs help from the community. Letting go of her fear and learning to accept help begins to open up her heart and hope for a future that seemed closed to her. Will her neighbor Titus continue to visit them even when the work is done?

    Something Blue: Returning to her hometown after nursing school, Darla Taggart hopes to retrieve something she left behind, bury the past and begin again. Her hopes are dashed when she runs into an old beau, and the items she left go missing. Can she accept the grace offered to her by others, see herself as a new person, and be open to a brighter future?

    This wonderful collection of novellas set in the late 1800's was well-written, with many interesting characters and settings. They are all separate stories, spread across small town America, with the heroines sharing the dilemma of facing something new: losing a home, moving to a new town, starting over, renewing relationships. I thoroughly enjoyed each one of these, especially the wonderful heroes featured. The hardworking, kind, compassionate, caring men who reached out in friendship to each of the ladies in their situations were quite irresistible! The last story in the collection has connections back to the author's Cripple Creek books, with many characters appearing, but it wasn't hard to keep up; it made me want to read the series to get their backstories. Loved the sweet little girls in that one too. The message of hope, grace to start anew, and love shine through each story.

    Highly recommend this collection by some of my favorite Christian fiction authors, especially for fans of historical romances.

    (Thank you to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for the book provided in exchange for my honest, unsolicited review.)
