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.
