As a busy mom, I have found a new appreciation for novella collections! So I was happy to review A Bride for All Seasons, especially since 3 of the 4 authors are ones I already know and love. With amazing authors like these, you can’t go wrong.
Info about the book
“And Then Came Spring”–Margaret Brownley
When mail order bride Mary-Jo Parker arrives in town she receives the shock of her life; not only is her fiancé dead, he left behind an eight-year-old son he neglected to mention. But the biggest challenge of all is the boy’s way-too-handsome uncle.
“An Ever-After Summer”–Debra Clopton
Widower Matt McConnell wrote his ad with no room for misunderstanding–Bible believers need not apply. But then Bible-thumping Ellie shows up on his doorstep. Matt’s so desperate for her help that he accepts.
“Autumn’s Angel”–Robin Lee Hatcher
Luvena Abbott’s privileged childhood didn’t prepare her for the hardship she now faces as an adult, especially when it comes to being the guardian of her nieces and nephew. Marriage seems the only answer to her dilemma. Clay Birch hopes to change the hurdy-gurdy house he won in a poker game into the finest opera house in the Northwest, but he’ll need help to do it. Could this unlikely couple actually be the perfect match?
“Winter Wedding Bells”–Mary Connealy
David Laramie is looking for a woman to care for his children. In exchange he’ll make her financially comfortable for life. But no woman wants to marry a dying man. Then Megan responds to his ad. It seems his “edited” letter contained no mention of him dying.
I LOVED this book! Again, these authors are some of my favorites and they didn’t disappoint. It was very fun to read about the stories. I loved the thread that tied them all together–a meddling man who took some liberties with the bridal advertisements! It definitely made for some fun story lines, if not some extra challenges to overcome for the characters.
Each story was full of hope, faith, and promise. There were challenges overcome, of course, but I loved to see how each set of characters worked with their specific challenges.
I am constantly inspired by fictional characters in Inspirational stories and I think we can all learn a lot from them about faith and perseverance.
Sometimes noellas may leave a reader wanting more, but these stories are expertly woven together to bring a satisfying conclusion, even at a shorter length.
For fans of Christian historical romance, you won’t want to miss this collection!
