    This Christmas novella collection offers a sweet remedy for seasonal stress—short, uplifting stories to refresh your love of the holiday. The four stories were each satisfying, although my favorite was Rachael Phillips's due to her fabulous humor. This collection is as delightful as the gingerbread cookies the four women share.

    I liked this collection of novellas focusing on the Christmas season and the Quaker lifestyle. I did not realize that the Quakers do not celebrate Christmas and how much they were persecuted. I did know they helped with the Underground Railroad from references in history. One of these stories the last one focused on that. Nothing heavy here just some light reading for the season. If I had started reading it sooner I would have just read one at a time, but now that Christmas is over so is this boo I liked this collection of novellas focusing on the Christmas season and the Quaker lifestyle.

I received this book at no cost from Amazon, but am not sure who to credit for that benefit.

    I thought all but the third of the novels in this collection were dull and boring. Most had little to do with Christmas. The last story was a little more interesting with a non Quaker woman married to a Quaker and trying to hide slaves on the underground railway.

Some say the River Pirates are a legend of the past, while others believe they still rule the waters and land. Henry longs to escape from his questionable lifestyle. When Henry rescues a woman who has fallen into the water his priorities take on a new promise. Each possesses a different belief and way of life but can the two successfully blend their future? For Susanna, the wife of an Underground Railroad Abolitionist, life can be lonely indeed for the times when Nathan is away. When a runaway slave shows up at her door one cold night looking for a way to escape the injustices of the South, Susanna is given an opportunity to make a difference and to prove her equality. Using authentic language of the Quaker Friends in conversations added to the charm of these novellas. It did take some getting used the language used in the beginning of reading but I soon got lost in them! I enjoyed them all but my favorites were: Pirate of My Heart and Equally Yoked. The suspense was gripping! The overall messages are inspiring and I was challenged in my faith. I highly recommend these well written novellas!

    I cannot figure out the 5 star ratings. I couldn't even finish the second story, the first two were so bad. Sorry to the authors of the remaining stories, but there are too many things on my to read list to struggle through this mess. The first story was terrible. The dialogue was banal, and the whole story was amaturish. I was stunned to find out this author had been publish prior. The story was stiff and stilted. I could not have cared less about the characters. If you are writing a romance the I cannot figure out the 5 star ratings. I couldn't even finish the second story, the first two were so bad.

I could not have cared less about the characters. If you are writing a romance there must be chemistry between your H and h. There was zero. The reactions of the characters were ridiculous. I'd say they were one dimensional, but the characterization in the first story was't even that good. This is the sanctimonious, poorly written nonsense that gives inspirational fiction a bad name. I had been curious about the series, Romancing America, but if this is an example of the quality of writing from this publisher, no thank you.

    A Crossroad to Love - three stars. Sweet little romance and good characters. Simple Gifts - Three stars. Sweet but didn't really stand out. Pirate of my heart - One star. This story was to short for the chosen plot. I hated everyone but Henry. Equally Yoked - Four stars. Best of the book. I loved that it was about a husband and wife. Overall - a weak collection that really wasn't very good. A Crossroad to Love - three stars. Sweet little romance and good characters. Simple Gifts - Three stars. Sweet but didn't really stand out.

    A collection of four Christmas novellas each featuring a Quaker heroine. An enjoyable read at Christmas time with each novella only taking an hour or less. Great book to take a break from shopping or wrapping.

    I enjoyed this collection of four novellas. I am not a fan of historical fiction, but these were great stories! I did not realize how much the early Quakers were persecuted. These novellas brought that home. All four stories were well written and the characters came to life for me!

    There wasn't much Christmas celebration because that is not the Quaker way, but I enjoyed these four stories about Quakers at Christmas in the 1800s. I think my favorite was the one about the Underground Railroad because it had some suspense.

    I don't normally read Christian romance, but this is such a sweet romance, and I do love those! Also I love historicals and this is a time period I'm interested in. Claire's story was my favorite, although they were all good. If you're looking for a sweet story and a glimpse into the Quaker world, this is the book for you!

    I am really into Amish books. This Quaker one was a good read. I especially like the last story. It was less of a love story and more about the human spirit urging us to help other people. Each story in this was different, yet all were good. Or maybe I am just easy to please.

    Enjoy this reading this book about the Quakers,though they didn't celebrate Christmas, some of the characters knew a little about the traditional Christmas. There is a great recipe in the back of the book fro Gingerbread cookies. I always enjoy reading books about the Quakers.

    I liked all 4 of these books about the simple life of Quakers and how they celebrate Christmas. Took me back to a much simpler time, when we focused on what was really important in our lives.

    A little too slow paced and simple for me. Definitely liked the last story best. (Equally Yoked by Claire Sanders).
