Praise for For Richer or Poorer novella:
"I loved this story! This is Natalie Monk's debut in Christian fiction and I predict many more wonderful stories coming from her in the future! A lovely voice and wonderful style of writing, great story and characterization. Her dialogue simply sparkles! Well worth staying up late to finish the read because I simply had to know the ending! Strongly recommend!"
Carrie Fancett Pagels, Ph.D., Overcoming With God & ECPA bestselling and award-winning author

These are Christian fiction and written very well by some authors I've read before and some whom I was very happily surprised to discover. If you enjoy sweet historical Christian romance stories and novellas that you can enjoy one or two here or there I recommend checking this one out! There are nine great novellas waiting for your enjoyment!
The stories vary in location and subject matter but all are set in the same time period. Some little bits of what you'll find within this collection are:
Railroads, Native Americans, attorneys, intrigue, horses, hidden identities, secrets, heartache, sickness, maid servants, baseball, deceit, foreign language, ships, newspapers, fishing, dancing, outdoor excursions, storytelling, archery, hospitals, competitions, hunting, civil war, library, children, studies, academies, flowers, flowers, flowers, books, race cars, fathers, damsels in distress, fire, atoning, music, sorrow, gentlemen, adventure, fortunes, balls, orphanages, picnics, stolen kisses, Love and weddings.
And so much more than all of those awaits you within the pages of this collection. Grab it, sit and savor one novella at a time or snuggle in with a blanket and drink and devour it all at once(plan nothing else for that day).
Content: Clean. Some kissing, some peril but nothing graphic or too intense. This is Christian fiction so there are some elements of religion, mostly characters thinking about God, silent prayers for help and guidance and a few characters reminding each other that God is in charge and to trust him.
Nine talented authors make up this historical romance collection dating from 1867 to 1899, also known as The Gilded Age.
Some familiar authors, wrote some of my favorite stories. I loved Kathleen Y'Barbo's story about a marriage of convenience, Gabrielle Meyer's story of a woman competing in traditionally male sporting events and Erica Vetsch's story about a horse-loving socialite falling for her riding instructor.
New to me author Jennifer Uhlarik wrote a great story, Union Pacific Princess, about a sharpshooter and railroad "princess", I'll be searching out more of her books.
Standout debut author Natalie Monk, wrote a wonderful story, For Richer or Poorer, concerning the plight of immigrants coming to America. She writes like a seasoned pro, I'm looking forward to more of her work.
An historical romance reader really can't go wrong with this collection, all of the stories are unique and enjoyable .
I appreciate Barbour Books making a copy of this collection available for review.
I can honestly say that I really enjoyed this entire collection. There were a couple of stories that had settings that just didn’t quite resonate with me as well—but that is certainly more of a preference than the quality of the story and writing. There were also a couple of stories that had settings that I just loved! But including those stories and the ones that fell somewhere in between, I found this to be a collection with a large variety of settings, characters, and circumstances. Binding everything together was a theme of money (or lack of). The stories took me all across the country and it was quite the adventure.
There were a few times that I felt like the stories may have been a bit on the rushed side, but I suppose to some degree that is to be expected with novellas. And there were certainly times that I was disappointed that I couldn’t stay in a particular story longer. All in all though, this collection is well-written, has wonderful themes and messages in the story, and was a joy to read. I can highly recommend this one.
