The first story is "A Heart So True" by Dorothy Love and the setting is Pawleys Island, South Carolina. Featuring two former fictional characters; fifteen year old Charlotte Frasher of "Carolina Gold" prior to her becoming mistress of Fair Haven and Celia Browning of " The Bracelet", a year after her marriage to Sutton Mackay. The main character is Abby Clayton, whose family hosts the annual party on the Island. Abby loves Dr. Wade Bennet, but her father is determined she will marry his cousin Charles Kittridge for the perfect political union. A great story that includes suspenseful twists .
The second story is "To Mend A Dream" by Tamera Alexander is set in Nashville, TN 1870. After the Civil War ended the only remaining members of the Darby Family are Savannah and her two younger siblings, Caroline and Andrew, their home and multi-generational farm has been lost to them forever through foreclosure. This was my favorite story, so believable for the time and location. Savannah's loss is great and yet she handles her responsibilities with such dignity and grace, which is so inspiring. I have read and loved all of Tamera's books and she is my all-time favorite author.
The third story is "Love Beyond Limits" by Elizabeth Musser. The setting is Wilkes County, GA late 1868. Emily her younger sister Anna and both parents are all that is left of the Derracott family. their plantation is being worked now by their former slaves, now all freedmen. Trouble is constant with the Klan and Emily's efforts to educate and care for the former slaves doesn't calm matters.
The fourth story is "An Outlaw's Heart" by Shelley Gray. Russell Champion left home seven years ago, but the nightmares still haunt him and now he is returning to his Texas home to confront his past and the two women who rejected him - his mother and his best friend and sweet heart. This is a good story of forgiveness and restoration.
Second is To Mend a Dream by Tamera Alexander. A delightful short story. This is the first I have read of this author and it was great. I will be reading more of her books. It was well written and now I want to read the book where Savannah was introduced.
Third is Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser. A picture of the South after the Civil War. Not a pretty picture at times. I loved how the romance developed even in the darkness of the history.
Last but in my opinion the best was An Outlaw's Heart by Shelley Gray. This was a delightful quick read. I fell in love with Russell and Nora. I loved the message of forgiveness and emotional healing. It is well written and one I know I will want to read again.
