Four of my favorite historical fiction writers all in one book...what more could one ask for? This is a neat little compilation of novellas based on letters. Each one unique and wonderful in it's own right and short enough to read in one setting or two at tops. This makes the stories perfect for the mom on the run!

Moonlight Promise by Laurie Alice Eakes
Camilla Renfrew boards a steam ship wanting to leave behind her drama and suspense only to find herself tangled in the midst of it. This book is packed with love, and suspense as the characters discover that life moves as quickly as the river and has many turns and twists that take us by surprise.

Lessons in Love by Ann Shorrey
This novella is filled with little deceptions that lead to large amounts of mischief and trouble. A lesson in the fact that the truth is almost always better - and is certainly easier to keep up with. Merrie learns quickly that leading a double life can lead to double the trouble as she tries to keep her true identity hidden so that she can keep her writing career. What will be the end result? - Well, you'd have to read this fast moving novella to find out how love, writing,and truth all work together to weave a story of wonderful proportions.

One Little Word by Amanda Cabot
Amanda Cabot is really one of my very favorites because of her easy writing style. This novella to me is classic Cabot style of ease and flow. Faced with a need to marry in order to save her fortune Lorraine finds out she has a brother she has never met. A letter to him finds her on the way to meet him and embark on an adventure that will forever change her life.

A Saving Grace by Jane Kirkpatrick
This is the one novella based less on love and romance and based more of the love of a friend and saving that friend from a dangerous place. I found this to be an interesting twist and was rather intrigued to find out later that this was based on a true story. Filled with suspense and a certain amount of heart ache this one will leave the reader in awe that such places could have really existed or that this school of thought could have been bought into all.

Each novella is wonderfully and masterfully written by authors used to writing much longer pieces. I would imagine it was a challenge for each to write a complete story in such a small amount of space when they are used to writing complete works that span hundreds of pages with detailed story. I thought each one pulled together their story very well and presented the needed information to make the story great.

Thanks to the publisher Revell for this review copy
