What a wonderful, fun novella collection! Every story was enjoyable to read and I really liked the theme that ran through all four of the books. Four ministers, sitting around a campfire, share stories with a fifth minister who is convinced that he and the woman he loves could never have a future together. The other four ministers set out to prove to him through their reminiscences that God is capable of bringing together two people even if the odds seem to be against them.
I really enjoyed how each story has a woman who is in some way looked down upon by the community she lives in. Two of the women had a catastrophe or horrible experience in their lives that caused people to judge them harshly. This was the case in the two stories Courting Trouble and A Cowboy for Katie. The other two women in Spitfire Sweetheart and A Love Letter to the Editor chose to live their lives in a different manner than men of that time period deemed appropriate. Whether it was Maizy dressing like a man and working the ranch, or Molly desiring to become the editor of the local newspaper, no one seemed to be able to handle their crazy ideas!
All four of these stories were excellent, with likeable characters and very interesting plots. The leading men in all four novellas are all appropriately swoon-worthy. Whether they began the story with an understanding heart toward the leading ladies, or have to gain some insight throughout the book, I found myself rooting for them to open their hearts and embrace the special woman that God created just for them.
I highly recommend this novella collection to fans of Christian historical fiction, especially if you like a western theme to your stories. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through Litfuse Publicity Group, in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
