I have just finished a book with four novellas by four different authors. I loved that at the end of each of the stories where author’s notes telling why they wrote about what they did, although the work are all fiction, there is a bit, and sometimes more to each of the stories. I think the one by Jane Kirkpatrick really touched me, and how terrible that some of the parts are true. Actually the ones you really don’t want to be, but am glad that she brought them to my attention.
These are all historical settings, and quick reads, you can finish one, and then head into the next in no time. I so enjoyed traveling in the historical parts of our country, I am able to see stonewalls of the old Erie Canal, not much there, but it is nice to read about it. I had a hard time putting the book down to go on with everyday activities.
There is blurb on the back of the book is about each novella, and it draws you in to make you want to read it. Also it give you an idea about what your about to read. There is so much more, and you’ll be pulled in quickly. We are fortunate to have such work available to the reader, and being able to enjoy four of theses wonderful authors at once is very poignant. You will find God present in each of these stories, and how he is part of their lives at the out come. There are some really good chuckles here, and some very serious and sad moments. I highly recommend you don’t let this book get away!
I received this book through the Revell Bloggers Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
