First Love Forever Romance Collection by Various

Delightful And Charming

First Love Forever Romance Collection is a delightful mix of nine stories set from 1858-1905. They are all unique and totally wonderful. They are united by themes of second chances, restoration, trust and the love of a Father whose timing is always perfect. A really charming collection. I could not pick a favourite as they were all delightful.

First Things First by Susanne Dietz is delightful. It is about second chances, the love of a family, trust and having correct priorities. “Choose to trust God rather than fight Him.” We need to surrender our lives to God and trust Him with our loved ones. “And you can handle it better than God can?” Do not pick up burdens you were never meant to carry. God needs to be first in our lives, everything will then slot into place. The story also shows we are not destined to repeat the sins of our parents and cannot be held responsible for them. A sweet and wise read.

The Captive Brides Collection by Various

Captivating

The Captive Brides Collection is a wonderful selection of nine tales dealing with captivity. Captivity may be physical, mental or spiritual. It is anything that binds us against our will. The reader travels from America to Australia, from 1655 to the late nineteenth century. The stories have similar themes of injustice, prejudice, trust, redemption, new beginnings and second chances, and fighting for freedom.

Down the ages women (and men and children) have been exploited by the greedy and the grasping. However there are good men who will fight this injustice. Good old fashioned knights in shining armour.

A perfectly delightful collection. I have my favourite. Pick up a copy today and see which one you like best.

Warm, Welcoming And Wonderful

Seven Brides For Seven Mail Order Husbands is a wonderful set of seven delightful Historical tales by seven different authors. All the stories are set in Turtle Springs, in the aftermath of the American Civil War, and have the same core. It was wonderful to read seven unique tales about the same event.

The stories all had similar themes of recovering from war, trusting God, facing fears, new beginnings and more. The characters were all warm and welcoming.

Did I have a favourite story? No. Each one was a wonderful offering and I could not possibly choose.

A perfectly delightful book.

blueThe Blue Ribbon Brides Collection by various is a perfect collection of Christian historical romantic tales. There are nine unique stories in this single volume. Each one is totally absorbing, wonderfully told and each has the feel-good factor. It’s a fabulous read and I can highly recommend it.

Requilted With Love by Carrie Fancett Pagels is a wonderful feel-good story to kick off the collection. Carrie Fancett Pagels always writes stories that speak straight to the readers heart. Her talent for describing scenes means the reader walks through the story actively rather than passively reading it.

The story deals with loss and grief and second chances. God is at the very heart. Characters need to seek His guidance and listen to His voice.

A perfectly delightful story.
