The novellas in this book first began as four separate books that have now been combined into one book. Each story has been written by a Christian fiction author and the stories only tie together by their historical setting during the summer time. Otherwise, they work as a stand-alone novella. The short stories give the reader a moment to step back in time for a little faith and romance. It also gives you a small taste of the author's writing style.

First, I loved this cover. It is incredibly beautiful. I have read books by several of these authors before so was excited to read something by them again. It's also nice to find new authors so you can sample their writing. Several of the stories were great and I really enjoyed them. I even gave one 5 stars. Others were just ok and while I didn't hate them, I wasn't in love. Because I'm a nerd, I gave each story a star and averaged out the ratings. It comes to a rating of 3.6 stars. So I'm giving the book as a whole a 4 star. Great book for taking along on those trips or waiting times. The stories are short so you can put them down or finish them quickly. Overall, this was a good book and I'm glad that I own it.

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