"The Prairie Romance Collection" is great fun to read. Each story, though different, gives you the sights and sounds and feel of living on The Great Prairie. This is a book where you wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, make yourself comfortable in your favorite chair and have warm cider to drink as you savor each story. All the stories are so well written and the romance is perfect, tender not overboard or forced. Take a look at the two fold out sleeves on the book to really give you the picture of what the prairie looked like. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more collections like this.
