    A trifecta of super authors make this a historical fiction reader's dream! Please note: these novellas have all been published in ebook format but this is the first time they've been compiled into print format. Perfect for the discerning reader's keeper shelf.

Please note: these novellas have all been published in ebook format but this is the first time they've been compiled into print format. Perfect for the discerning reader's keeper shelf. A Search for Refuge by Kristi Ann Hunter -- I read this series inside out so it was nice to fill in some of the missing pieces through reading this novella. Loved being present at the inception of Haven Manor! Nash and Margaretta's love story is sweet and intense and threatened by a cruel, power-hungry man. Cue a page- turning frenzy and call me one blissfully happy reader! Summer of Dreams by Elizabeth Camden -- It's 1886 and Evelyn's father considers her "biologically unsuited" for pursing an education in engineering but that doesn't stop her from creating some ambitious projects on her own. When a rakish West Point cadet lends assistance on a complicated electrical issue sparks fly! Only she's vowed to never become involved with an army man and he's already committed to the Engineering Crops. Yep, it's complicated. Camden packed a lot of emotional depth into this 'not so doomed' romance as both Evelyn and Clyde struggle with issues from their past threatening their future. Up From the Sea by Amanda Dyke -- "Lord, you created the dark just as you created the light. Help me find life there, and not fear." (p 252) A lyrical, evocative tale that explores what really matters. It's 1925 and Savannah is a displaced Southerner in the wilds of Maine trying to reconnect with her deceased mother's family. She's a farmer's daughter and they are nouveau riche thanks to the marvels of the stock market. But her mother has left her a story and a map and Savannah's determined to uncover treasure buried long ago with the help of a taciturn lumberjack. And yes, I swooned all over Alastair!

    I picked this up from my local library because I'm familiar with two of the authors in this novella series. I actually have read Hunter's story within this book already so I just jumped right into Camden's novella. For Hunter's story, I thought it was a good. It gives us a glimpse of Nash and how he found love and how the whole operation about saving unwanted children of the aristocracy came about. I'm still very impressed about the women in this story and how they saved these innocent lives. Th I picked this up from my local library because I'm familiar with two of the authors in this novella series.

It gives us a glimpse of Nash and how he found love and how the whole operation about saving unwanted children of the aristocracy came about. I'm still very impressed about the women in this story and how they saved these innocent lives. That's the main reason I keep coming back to this series. For Camden's story, I am always in awe at how she incorporates so much history into her stories. In this one one we learn about a student in West Point who meets with a general's daughter. They both have something to prove and spent the summer putting together an impressive greenhouse with high tech electrical and water connections. Their love for engineering draws them together, along with the girl's cousin, Romulus. As with any other "romance" novellas, they find their happily ever after but not until after they've gone through some maturing and learning. For Dyke's story- I have to say I've never read any of the author's books before so this was my first introduction to her writing. As much as their are some interesting history behind her story, I wasn't into the whole folk tale plot. I found the descriptive paragraphs too long and the romance a little rushed. I also didn't like that the story has some parts of it that weren't resolved at the end. I felt like the uncle's desperation which led him to sell her land, then all of a sudden she gets it back along with the male hero's land. I understand that this is part of a series and that we'll learn more about the folk tale aspect in the other books but it was not for me and I'm not interested in learning more. Sorry. Over all a good collection of historical fiction. My favorite one was Ms. Camden's. I just love how she weaves her tales, along with some really fascinating history in it.

    This novella has 3 short stories from contemporary Christian authors. I enjoy reading Elizabeth Camden, so I wanted to read anything from her and I read the other two authors. I enjoyed Kristi Ann Hunter so I might start reading some books from her. These story are period pieces around the 1800’s in various parts of United States. If you like period pieces you will like these historical romances.

    It was nice to read works by authors I haven't tried before. I got this to read the story by Kristi Ann Hunter. The last two stories weren't the type I usually read. I don't think I continue those series if there are series. It was nice to read works by authors I haven't tried before. I got this to read the story by Kristi Ann Hunter.

    I'm counting this as read because I've read all the stories separately and this way I know in the future that I've already read it. The only new to me author was Amanda Dykes and I'm going to look for the book that follows her novella here now that I've read her work.

    I sought this book because I have really enjoyed Kristi Ann Hunter’s earlier books. I found her short story to be the best of the three, but all three stories flirted with boring.
