Four unexpected letters. Four intrepid women. Four lives changed forever.

Spanning a century and a continent, these romantic novellas will lead you on a journey through the landscape of love. Four young women find their lives altered after each receives a letter that sets her on a new path. From a Hudson River steamboat to a lush drawing room, from a carousel carver’s workshop to a remote hospital, you’ll be swept into the lives of women who are making their way in the world and finding love where they least expect it.

Moonlight Promise by Laurie Alice Eakes
Camilla Renfrew is a highborn English lady fleeing false accusations when she runs smack into love on a steamboat bound for the new Erie Canal. But can this unexpected attraction survive the treacherous journey?

Lessons in Love by Ann Shorey
Marigold Montgomery Bentley writes marriage advice for Kipler’s Home Weekly even though she is single. Everyone assumes from the initials that “M. M.” is a man. When the editor asks to meet Mr. Bentley, can Merrie come up with a ruse to keep her writing job?

One Little Word by Amanda Cabot
Lorraine Caldwell will lose her family fortune to a reckless cousin if she doesn’t marry quickly. When she learns her long-lost brother is alive, she hopes she’s found the answer to her problems. What she finds instead is a mysterious carousel carver who turns her life upside down.

A Saving Grace by Jane Kirkpatrick
Grace Hathaway must rescue a dear friend from a remote and notorious clinic that promises healing but delivers only heartache. In a place laced with deceit, where lives hang in the balance, whom can she trust to help her?

When I’m in the mood for a short story I usually reach two different directions. One is toward eBooks, where often I’ve been finding a freebie here and there, and then the other direction is toward the newer oversize books from the Barbour Romance and Brides collections. Now a third and fourth option have popped up in from Thomas Nelson and Revell Books. The one to tell you about today is from Revell Books. Take two authors I adore and two authors I enjoy, and combine all four of them in one novella collection and you have a great book pile for anytime. It’s an especially great read for the spring holidays coming up if you’re traveling and need a short read.

Jumping right into the first story, “Moonlight Promise” was a great read. Romantic and enchanting with a bit of mystery and adventure. Each other story was found to be a good read as well. I hope that this is the first of many novella collections from Revell Books. It is a great start. It seems to me you can never get enough of a good author’s stories be it long or short.
