Top Customer Reviews
1) "A Place to Belong" by Barbara Tifft Blakey
Abigail is a disabled orphan who feels like she's a burden to her uncle. Jacob is the hired hand who admires her but thinks God has a plan for him that is not in a Pony Express Station. Will he realize His true plan?
2) "An Unlikely Hero"- by Mary Davis
Beth Ann and her sister are escaping from a horrible predicament. Hiding in a Stagecoach stop seems like a perfect solution. Fox is a puny Pony Express rider who has low self esteem. This is a great story of a man who went from "zero to hero".
3) "The Gambler's Daughter" by Darlene Franklin
Caroline Adams arrives at a Pony Express Relay Station hoping to reunite with her estranged father but finds her father skipped out. Martin has his own secrets. The story was a little flat. The Christmas background was nice, though.
4) "Her Lonely Heart" by Cynthia Hickey
I try to read any historical novels by Ms. Hickey. This one did not disappoint. Sadie is a widow who runs the Cottonwood Relay Station after her husband died. Dr. Luke Stetson (yes, like the hat) chases after his younger wanderlust brother who wants to be a Pony Express rider. Will he heal her lonely heart?
5) "My Dear Adora" by Maureen Lang
This is a different twist on the Pony Express theme. Chip has been reuniting undelivered letters with recipients after his brother was attacked and his mochila was compromised. Adora was accused of improper conduct as a teacher. A nice, sweet story.
6) " Ride Into My Heart" by Debby Lee
Kimimela is a half-Sioux Pony Express Station worker in Utah Territory. She and half-Cherokee Gabe has difficulties living between two cultures, accepted in neither world. This one reads like a western with lots of action.
7) "Echoes of the Heart" by Donna Schlachter
Catherine Malloy arrives at Hollenberg Station hoping for a mail-order marriage to Benjamin to help her escape the secrets she carries. There were a lot of misunderstandings (i.e. one or the other catch the end of the other's conversation). A fulfilling story about accepting people's shortcomings.
8) "Abundance of the Heart" by Connie Stevens
I always enjoy Ms Stevens stories. Mercy is a true horse whisperer. When she sees mistreated horses at Fletcher's Pony Express Station, she insists on staying to help. Can her kindness keep Fletcher from leaving?
9) "Embattled Hearts" by Pegg Thomas
This one was my favorite. It's a great story of overcoming adversity and keeping faith. Alannah has been facing abuse and threats from her stepfamily since her mother died. Running away with her brother is her only hope. Stewart is a stationmaster who feels no purpose. They both face constant threat from her stepfamily. I really enjoyed this one.
All of the stories take place towards the end of Pony Express's demise. It is obvious historical research was done. Romance, history, and faith make for a great collection. I highly recommend it!
A sweet romance about true love being right in front of you! This is my first book by Barbara and I loved it! I appreciate a Hero who is so faithful to God and I love that he was invisible to her until God's perfect timing made him shine!
An Unlikely Hero by Mary Davis
Just wonderful! This story pulled me in right away! I love an underdog having his dreams come true! Fox is a man that many women could fall for! Excellent job Mary! I look forward to reading more of your work!!
The Gambler’s Daughter by Darlene Franklin
This is an amazing story with a strong Christian romance! Darlene never disappoints! I love how this couple grows to know her father through his journal as they grow to love each other! An excellent example of God's providence and love as well as his mercy and grace! I highly recommend this book!!
Her Lonely Heart by Cynthia Hickey
A love built by need and admiration brings a widow with 2 kids into a family of 8! A wonderful tale of following your heart and changing for the better! I especially loved the elder Doctor's heart change and the second chance for Greta and Eagle! Very well written with a strong Christian themes throughout!
My Dear Adora by Maureen Lang
So many twists and turns in this beautiful and creative love story! I especially loved the truth about the inheritance! This is my second book by Maureen but it won't be my last! I have many of her books on my To Be Read list!!
Ride into My Heart by Debby Lee
A sweet story of growing in Christ as well as a sample of what the Native Americans and mixed races dealt with during the time of the Pony Express! What a whirlwind of excitement and adversity!
Echoes of the Heart by Donna Schlachter
This was a good story but I feel like there's a chapter missing. They had so many false assumptions and misunderstandings yet the agree to marry out of nowhere. I felt confused and wished Donna had expounded on their first honest conversation. But the rest was very good! I prefer couples who actually talk to each other but that would have been a whole different story!
Abundance of the Heart by Connie Stevens
Oh! I loved this story! Terrible treatment of the Pony Express horses and Mercy buy ruthless men make her and the horses shy towards men! But her tender care of the horses and Fletcher's prayers and tender touch towards her give them all healing! This tale reminds us that God hears our prayers and heals the broken hearted!!
Embattled Hearts by Pegg Thomas
Wow! My emotions were all over the place! Abused by her step father, rescued by her teen brother, and saved by Stewart the Pony Express Station Master! Lanny finally turns to God in her desperation and he too comes through with a miracle! Even the Dr helps keep her safe! This was a wonderful story and I look forward to reading more of Pegg's books!
If you love novella collection as much as I do you won’t be disappointed with this offering.
