I enjoy short stories, and although all these stories have a common thread in that they all involve letters, they are all very different stories.
All the authors put their own twists into their tales and I loved how each story involved a different type of heroine. All had an inner strength that they called on along with their spiritual beliefs that were strong.
Each story was easy to read and easy to get engrossed into. If I had to pick a favorite it would be Laurie Alice Eakes, Moonlight Promise. The historical background written by each author after their story is very interesting and should be read as well.
Stars out of 5 : 4.5 Well worth the read as you get four stories in one book. All are enchanting and are enjoyable reads. A book I would recommend with stories by well known authors.
