The British Brides Collection

The British Brides Collection
Kelly Eileen Hake, Bonnie Blythe, Pamela Griffin, 
Gail Gaymer Martin, Tamela Hancock Murrey, Jill Stengl

Nine short stories are pulled from other novellas to make this large short story collection about British brides. Each story is stand-alone, but there does seem to be a tiny thread that pulls most of them together.

Since the nine stories all taken from already published novellas* I will not attempt to describe them here. I enjoyed reading this book. The stories were short so character development had to be rushed in most cases. But since I expected this, it didn't bother me. Sweet, faith filled, romantic stories that will take you away for a few moments are the perfect thing to take with you to an appointment or to pick up when you only have a short time to read. Since most of these authors have written full length novels, it gives you a glimpse into their writing style. I love reading British stories, so I enjoyed the peak into what life might have been like in historical Scotland and England.

I received this book free of charge from Barbour in exchange for my honest review.
