Karen Witemeyer, Jody Hedlund, and Elizabeth Camden are among the most acclaimed authors in the historical romance genre--their novels have won a RITA award, a Christy Award, a Christian Book Award, and multiple Carol Awards. These beloved writers offer for the first time ever in print three unforgettable historical novellas that celebrate true love:
Karen Witemeyer's "Worth the Wait" takes readers to the Harper's Station women's colony, where a single mother must overcome pain and fears of the past in order to trust a gruff but kind freighter who has helped the women expand their business.
Jody Hedlund's "An Awakened Heart" follows a young widow into the shadows of New York's tenements, where she and a newly appointed minister spar over the best way to care for the poor and orphaned.
Elizabeth Camden's "Toward the Sunrise" finds a female medical student trying to overcome the ramifications of a decision that leaves her at the mercy of a stubborn but handsome attorney.
The neat thing about this book is there are three short stories from authors books I enjoy reading. Also the stories are prequel's to series they wrote. So it's the best of both worlds; if you have already read the books in these series, you will be familiar with the characters and the set up of the stories. If you haven't read anything by these authors, this will give you a taste of their writing and what their following books in their series will be all about. Win, win in my opinion.
Each story is only a novella, so doesn't take a lot of reading, so you can read one story one day, save another for another day. You don't have to read them in sequence, as each one is by a different author. Falling in love is the common theme for all three novella's along with faith.
Stars out of 5 : 5 Loved reading these novellas. Great that they were all in one book. Brought back memories of each of the series that I have read. Well worth reading. This was my first experience reading a novella, and I hope it won't be my last as I thoroughly enjoyed reading these ones.
