A Bride for All Seasons by Margaret Brownley, Debra Copton, Mary Connealy, Robin Lee Hatcher

This book is the perfect blend of history, fun and spiritual wisdom. Four great writers teamed up to create this book. Each story deals with a "mail order bride". Each bride discovers an unexpected surprise upon arriving at her destination. It was interesting to read about the different situations that would cause a man or woman to be part of a mail order marriage. While the times the women lived in are far different than our own - their longing for love and family are ones we all can relate to. Each story puts emphasis on God being able to bring good out a difficult situation. Each write in her unique way showed through her character that God cares about the details of our life and He is working to bring about good for each individual. Each young lady will win her way into your heart as you read about her faith, struggles and ultimate triumph in love!

I received this book from the publishers and was not required to write a positive review.

Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold by Joyce Magnin

Harriet Beamer gives real meaning to good clean fun. This book has lots of adventure and excitement mixed in with deep family fun. Harriet is a likable character that has some real life sorrows, questions about life and God. She learns to deal with emotions such as: jealously, doubt, grief, anger, fear. She learns that God often has the treasure we seek right in front of us all the time. Harriet is 72 and I love it that she's the heroine of this story and it's not about another beautiful, young heroine like most books but rather an ordinary woman with an extraordinary heart. I'm not a senior yet so I can honestly say this book could appeal to anyone of any age.

This book was given to me free by the publishers and I was not required to write a positive review.
