MargotSouth AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Lots of Great Quick ReadsMay 10, 2014MargotSouth AustraliaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It's certainly a different style of writing, and reading, with 9 short (50 pages each) stories in one volume. I found I quite enjoyed it, finishing each in a day. Even though they were short, the characters were still nicely filled out, and there was enough activity to make each story full and satisfying. I especially enjoyed the 4 stories about the 4 Craig sisters sent as mail order brides to the small town of Lickwind. They flowed together so it was like reading one full length novel, but 4 authors were involved. Each story goes to show that love can grow when people who are thrown together by circumstance choose to put God at the center of their marriage and determine to make a go of it. Even though they were all fictional, that sort of thing happened a lot in those days. It's a good lesson for all those in shaky marriages today. A very enjoyable read.

I will order more of these collections.
