The Farmer's Bride Collection by DiAnn Mills, Kimberley Comeaux, Susan K Downs, JoAnn A Grote, Ellen Edwards Kennedy, and Debby Mayne - Review

A Season to Sow, A Season
to Reap, a Season to Love

Homesteads fueled the expansion of America, and these farms depended on families to run them. In this collection of six down-on-the-farm stories, marriages are formed often with the future of the land in mind before romance.

One Little Prayer by Kimberley Comeaux
The Tie That Binds by Susan K Downs
A Homesteader, a Bride, and a Baby by JoAnn A Grote
The Applesauce War by Ellen  Edwards Kennedy
Sunshine Harvest by Debby Mayne
New Beginnings by DiAnn Mills

From Minnesota to Florida, New York to Kansas, and Ohio to Louisiana, heroic men and women make sacrifices in order to create a home, bring in the harvest, and secure a future for the next generation. But will love, friendship, and faith also flourish out of the land God entrusts to them?

I enjoy these collections of short stories, such a variety and usually very good stories. It's amazing that in the 'old' days people would meet, get married within days or weeks and they were good marriages that lasted. Today if someone gets married after a year people will tell you to wait until you know your 'intended' better. Also if more people would work at their marriages, be willing to forgive each other, discuss things instead of giving up there wouldn't be so many divorces. I liked each of these stories and would recommend this book to others. Wonderful stories of couples working together.
