I have been a fan or Jody Hedlund and Elizabeth Camden for some time, but this is the first I have read of Karen Witemeyer and I am so glad I did!
All My Tomorrows is a delightful collection of novellas from these ladies, which I loved. Just the perfect length for a leisurely summer afternoon read.
Worth the Wait by Karen Witemeyer had me hooked and devouring every word as fast as I could until I got to the end. If you don’t fall in love with these characters right away….and swoon when you get to the end…..then I will be mightily surprised. Tori’s story really touched my heart, and then add a puppy and a handsome hero and how can you not love this story. Tori must overcome much, and face much to get to her happily ever after.
An Awakened Heart from Jody Hedlund includes some of the back stories of her Orphan Train series, so if you have read any of those, you will love this “prequel” if you will. We get to know a bit more of Christine Pendleton and Reverend Bedell and how the orphans come to be part of the story.
Toward the Sunrise by Elizabeth Camden was thoroughly enjoyable too. Julia Broeder’s story is absolutely adorable! There are goats in this story ya’ll! Aston and Julia have one thing in common, a love for Marco Polo. It’s hard to tell you much about this story without giving away spoilers but I CAN tell you that I devoured this one! It was just my kind of story. I related to Julia’s determination to do what she has to to make her dreams come true and her evasive maneuvers to not face up to her fears when things don’t go quite as she planned.
I found this to be a lovely Historical Fiction Romance collection.
