In first grade, Janet Spaeth was asked to write a summary of a story about a family making maple syrup. She wrote all during class, through morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess, and asked to stay after school. When the teacher pointed out that a summary was supposed to be shorter than the original story, Janet explained that she didn’t feel the readers knew the characters well enough, so she was expanding on what was in the first-grade reader. Thus a writer was born. She lives in the Midwest and loves to travel, but to her, the happiest word in the English language is home.

Each of the stories were adventures of women going westward in the 1800's. It describes the hardships experienced along the way.

Nancee5 Stars Out Of 5Tales of Christmas RomanceDecember 3, 2014NanceeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a collection of historical stories of Christian romance that are centered around the Christmas holiday. The featured female characters are traveling westward toward a new life, leaving the past behind. Each story is written by a different author, and the themes vary as much as the authors' personalities. A strong Christian theme is woven throughout these stories of love and the ambiance of Christmas.
These short stories make up a wonderful holiday collection of cozy reads. I thoroughly enjoyed picking up this book and reading a story in the evenings as I relaxed and became swept into the lives of these young women searching for change and new lives. I normally enjoy a full-length novel over a novella or short story, but I found it refreshing to enjoy a brief tale of Christmas romance. Pick up a few copies to share with friends, and keep a copy for yourself to enjoy with a cup of your favorite beverage. This would make a wonderful gift, a book to be kept on the coffee table or next to your favorite chair, to pick up and enjoy as time allows. I will undoubtedly read this book again as the holidays approach each year.

Big MomIngleside, ILAge: Over 65Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Love Christmas stories. However this collection was OK.December 1, 2014Big MomIngleside, ILAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I always look forward to Christmas stories and this collection just was not as great as I had hoped. Most of the stories/characters/outcomes were so predictable. I did not enjoy MaryLu Tyndall's pirate theme. I tried on two occasions to read this story, but just ended up passing on this story. I wished that there was more of a preview/excerpt of the stories in any collection before purchasing.
Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5Get in the Christmas spiritOctober 10, 2014Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really just sometimes like to sit back and enjoy a shorter story. In the Westward Christmas Brides Collection we have a wonderful collection of stories by 9 different authors. I wanted to read this book most of all as one of my favorite authors, MaryLu Tyndall, had a short story in this collection. However, every story was delightful and I found more authors to put on my wish list. Each story is only about 40-50 pages long, but they are all so well told that it did not seem like I was reading a short story. The book itself is lovely and nicely laid out. With beveled pages and a beautiful winter scene on the inside of both flaps, it would make a very thoughtful Christmas gift to a reader in your life. I really enjoyed all these prairie romances and look forward to reading more in these collections. I received the book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
