Three Heart Warming Stories in One Book July 13 2011
By Jutzie - Published on
Format: Paperback
Daddy's Girl-
Glenna Moore & David Green meet on a trail. Glenna and her father are heading to Granger, Wyoming. They have been kicked out of another town and it was leave or let her father get shot. He was a gambler. He cheated others and drank too much. Glenna herself lied and cheated to cover for her father. Ever since her mother died in childbirth they had been moving from town to town.

David is heading to Idaho City to become a pastor at a church there. He notices the beautiful dark haired girl and wonders how the drunken older man is related to her.

Glenna gets up to get some air while her father is gambling and David follows her. When her father comes down to them he looks angry. He had told David to stay away. Instead her father jumps over the rail of the train. Thinking he must have died and left her alone in the world, David offers marriage. It seems his church thinks he has a wife. David also tells Glenna about Christ and salvation.

David has a past of his own to tell Glenna about. Good story.

Dear Teacher-
This is such a heart warming story.
Ernie Snyder has a boat and works bringing coal on his boat along the canal. He is raising is children on his own being his wife died.
Judith King is the new schoolmarm. When she meets Ernie and his children in the general store she finds out that his children will start school in a month or so when the weather is too cold for them to be using the canal.

Ernie is attracted to the teacher but feels she could never care for someone like him who only finished the 4th grade. Judith feels unattractive. She is taller then most women and she has one blue and one brown eye.

We see Ernie struggling through the book to even talk to the "purty" teacher and is shyness is endearing.

Twice Loved-
Dan's wife Darcy died of leukemia two years ago. Bev's husband died while at war four years ago. They bumped into each other at Bev's work while he was there. He noticed the woman had been crying.

Bev has just lost her job to a returning soldier who held the position before her. She sees a help wanted in the paper for Twice Loved. Darcy had started the store for the children during the war. They gave away toys and helped the families. When Bev applies it takes them a bit to recognize each other from their quick meeting.

Dan is taken with Bev's six year old daughter, Amy. Darcy and him had never had children. As the two of them grow closer they keep trying to put distance between them as the memories of their late spouses are still there.

Another great story and wonderful characters.

Love Finds A Home by Wanda E. Brunstetter

I received an advance review copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one.

Love Finds A Home is 3 historical romances combined together to make a longer book.

In the first story we meet Glenna Moore who has a drunken gambling father who forced them to move to another town. On the journey, while on the train, Glenna meets a young reverend who supports her when her father jumps from the train to take his own life. Will this reverend provide her the love and support she always needed, or does he have secrets of her own that will destroy everything?

In the second story we meet Judith King, a young school teacher who has never found a man. She meets the widowed father of two children who works hauling coal up and down the river. During the winter she gets the chance to know him better as she teaches his children. She finds him gentle and kind, and he too is intrigued by her, but he cannot fathom that she could like him. After all he is just stupid and uneducated. Will Judith become the new mother for these children? Or are their worlds just too different?

In the third story we meet Bev Winters, a young widow with a young daughter. Bev has just lost her job, and has no idea how she is going to support her daughter. When she stumbles across an opportunity to work in a second-hand toy store, she gladly accepts, and her boss' kindness knows no bounds. He is being chased by another woman, but still has not recovered from the loss of his dear wife. Will a fire start between Bev and her boss? Or is he just the answer to her prayers in other ways?

Read Love Finds A Home to find out!

I have to say that I was sadly disappointed. But then again, Wanda E. Brunstetter has just never been my favorite author.

While in some respects most romances are very predictable, these were even more so. Not to mention the conversations between the characters felt so forced and jilted. Nothing at all was natural about the dialogue.

I also found Glenna Moore to be an irritating character. It was as if she needed a man to be ok. I much prefer reading fiction about a strong young woman who can take care of herself and ends up not with a man because she has to, but rather because she wants to and chooses to...

Judith King was a better character, but Wanda E. Brunstetter has written so many stories about canal workers and romance on the canal that it feels the same as every other book I have read by her.

Bev Winters was also a better character, more independent, and less naive.

Overall I would say

2 out of 5 stars.

Nothing special.

Good romance read. July 2 2011
By JoyAnne - Published on
Format: Paperback
Brunstetter has written a collection of short stories about women who must overcome hindrances and hardship as they learn to trust God with their lives and learn to love.

Glenna Moore has gotten used to watching over her father in his drunken stupors. When he is caught cheating in a card game, they must board a train and escape those who are after him. She meets a young preacher who could change her life.

Judith King believes no one could possibly love her because of her flaw. Read how her self esteem rises up as she falls in love with the father of one of her students. Will that love be returned?

Widow Bev Winters obtains a much needed position in a toy shop, she is thinking of nothing but providing for her young daughter. The toy shop's owner is a widower with love being the last thing on his mind. See how the Lord brings happiness to their lives.

I recommend this book if you're a romance reader! I give it 4 stars.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Read Better Sept. 7 2011
By weatherlover1 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book contains three short stories and they are indeed very short. I realize that when a story is shorter your not going to have as much depth and detail but I felt that these stories where so short they did not seem believable. Take the first story for instance it deals with Glenna who is running with her father because he is a gambler and on the train she meets a man who ended up marring her. The story line idea was great it could have been a whole book in its self but when compressed it was so unbelievable. She married the man and fell in love with him in just days. The 2nd story was about the same. The third story at least got this one more star because I did like it and felt it was an okay short story. I just think it would have been better to have one of these stories be a whole novel rather then two unbelievable short stories and one okay one. The writing itself was good and the characters likeable but it could have been so much more.
