~Book Review~ “Sincerely Yours” by Jane Kirkpatrick, Laurie Alice Eakes, Amanda Cabot and Ann Shorey

Goodreads Synopsis:</strong

"In this collection of brand-new historical novellas from four outstanding storytellers, four young women find their lives altered after each receives a letter that sets her on a new path toward a changed life–and perhaps lifelong love. From a Hudson River steamboat to a lush drawing room, from a carousel carver's workshop to a remote and controversial hospital, readers will love being swept into the lives of four young women who are making their way in the world and finding love where they least expect it."

My Review:

I absolutely loved this book! I have read many books that have four novellas inside one cover and they never disappoint me. Reading the title made me wonder what the stories would be like and how they would include letters. The way that these authors all started with a letter for someone to go to another place, but still have their own style of writing. Camilla, Marigold, Lorraine, and Grace are all powerful women that answered a letter and had a great adventure in each of their stories. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

~Book Review~ “Love’s Sweet Beginning” by Ann Shorey

20140329-154329.jpg

Goodreads Synopsis:

“It wasn’t Cassie Haddon’s fault that she had managed to reach the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the war, she had always had servants to wait on her. Since then, she and her widowed mother had moved from place to place, relying on family to care for them. Now she’s forced to find work to support them both. What isn’t in her plans is falling for Jacob West, a local restaurateur and grocer. She needs a job and he needs help. But what they both need is love.”

My Review:

This book is a story about a rich girl who lost her father and became poor when her uncle kicked her and her mother out of the house. Cassie is a character who shows passion and courage when the tough times come upon her. Jacob West is man who has a past and has to overcome living with the past and his feelings for Cassie. I loved this story and how the characters intertwined with each other. The lessons that Cassie learns are lessons that every girl can benefit from. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
