I really enjoy the omnibus books with the short stories. They may take a while to read but each story tells how the pioneers had to depend on faith and even if they are afraid to step out in faith when they do it usually turns out for the good of each party involved. I just have to admire the hard work our ancestors went through to build this country and their determination to succeed.
Nine authors team up in their new book, "The Prairie Romance Collection" published by Barbour Publishing Inc. to give us nine Historical Romances from America's Great Plains .
Lynn A. Coleman provides the first story, "After The Harvest" where Judith and Rylan not only find each other and learn to live in Kansas but help others find there place in town also. Mary Davis gives us "Love Notes", I just love this title, Laurel Rivers finds escape from her pain in a piece of music she finds and then she finds the composer. Lena Nelson Dooley provides "Mother's Old Quilt" where two people can find new life because Maggie has to restore an old quilt for the new stationmaster.
Linda Ford gives us "The Bride's Song" A tale where a city girl learns the joys of prairie life after she nurses a cowboy back to health. Linda Goodnight provides "The Barefoot Bride" where Emma advertises for a husband and Matt is using it to hide from his past. Cathy Marie Hake tells us about "The Provider" Will prejudice separate the Lena Swenson and Steven Halpern because of their nationality? Judith Miller gives us "Freedom's Ring" Hannah Falcrest is free from her late abusive husband but William Winslow seems to want to take his place. Kathleen Paul weaves "Returning Amanda" where Sheriff Jake Moore discovers a lost child and get Pamela Kotchis to help him find the little girls family. Janet Spaeth tells "Only Believe" Where Catherine is trying to bring in the harvest for her ill brother, by herself, and even though she refuses help her strength only goes but so far.
"The Prairie Romance Collection" is great fun to read. Each story, though different, gives you the sights and sounds and feel of living on The Great Prairie. This is a book where you wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, make yourself comfortable in your favorite chair and have warm cider to drink as you savor each story. All the stories are so well written and the romance is perfect, tender not overboard or forced. Take a look at the two fold out sleeves on the book to really give you the picture of what the prairie looked like. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more collections like this.
