Among the Fair Magnolias: Four Southern Love Stories (Novella Collection) {Review}

I love novella collections, I really truly do. I love them for vacation to carry a little bit of everyone with you. But I also love them for meeting new authors. In this instance, all four of these ladies are not new to me. Actually all four of these ladies find themselves on my favorites list. Contains four sweeping stories from bestselling historical romance authors. Provides novella-length releases between authors’ full-length novels. One-of-a-kind stories set in antebellum and post-bellum Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. Includes Reading Group Guides. Bonus content: http://media.harpercollinschristian.com/page/fairmagnoliastreasury/ Dorothy Love writes a good deep story. Even for a short story her writing can captivate an audience.

Brand New from the Pen interview Hi everyone! Thanks so much for opportunity to join you here. What made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres?
