The Farmer's Bride Collection by DiAnn Mills, Kimberly Comeaux, Susan K. Downs, JoAnn A. Grote, Ellen Edwards Kennedy, and Debby Mayse ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

One Little Prayer--Louanne thinks that her prayers for a father have been answered when she finds a strange man shot in the woods. Louanne is a bright girl, and she loves to read. Louanne's mother, Tessa, has a strong faith, and while she appreciates Louanne's efforts she knows that she can't marry someone who doesn't share her faith. A fun story with great elements of faith, and touches of humor. I really liked how Tessa is a strong woman of faith who raises her daughter in faith, and how James comes to enjoy spending time with Tessa and Louanne.

The Tie that Binds--When the Orphan Train comes through town, Frank and Emma both want to adopt a child, even though they are single. Emma is hesitant to go along with Frank's plan, as she doesn't even know him. But will God bring them together into the family of their dreams?

A Homesteader, Bride, and a Baby--Lorette is coming to visit her sister, but before she gets there her sister and her family die, except for the baby. The family that Lorette is working for doesn't want the baby around, so she moves out to the ranch. Chase is their nearest neighbor and he comes to check on them, and teaches her how to keep up the farm. But when the rumors begin to fly, Chase offers a solution.

The Applesauce War--Two scheming father's try to set up their children in the spirit of Shakespeare. Verity and Pete grew up on neighboring farms, but they have been away at school, they meet in town, and pray about their father's feud. Can love heal the rift between families?

Sunshine Harvest--Daniel comes to the Drake Citrus Farm to deliver the bad news of Mr. Drake's passing. Josephine and her mother are devastated by the news, Daniel does everything he can to help lighten the load, and friends from church come to help too.

New Beginnings--Betsy and Nicholas have known each other their whole lives, they marry and leave everything behind to have a farm of their own in Ohio. They work hard to make the farm a success befriending their neighbors, who encourage them in their faith and their marriage. A realistic look at a couple who doesn't marry for love, who fight to make a life farming in Ohio. One of my favorites.

This 6 novella collection is full of great faith--filled stories of farming couples, who face the challenges of marriage and love working the land. Previously released in 2013.
