FOR LOVE AND HONOR, an anthology featuring works by Cathy Maxwell, Lynne Hinton, and Candis Terry is a touching tribute to all those who have ever worn a uniform or ever will. It's a thank you that will touch your heart and have you wishing to extend your thanks to every man or woman in uniform. I read all three stories plus the excerpts for these three authors' other works in one evening.

Reading THE BOOKISH MISS NELSON by Cathy Maxwell was like reading a teaser, a teaser that left me wanting mo

All of these novellas are about the "Real" heroes who fight everyday, and give their lives to keep us safe. I say that is enough to want to grab this one up, well, the handsome officers in the stories help a little!!

This is an anthology containing three different short stories (novellas) about men in arms. Perfect timing with its release being right around Memorial Day. I'll break it down into three parts then give an overall rating to the anthology.

THE BOOKISH MISS NELSON by Cathy Maxwell
Historical Fiction - 1812

"You are hot-headed, Duroy. An officer under my command controls his temper. I want level heads around me. So, I'm going to have you cool your heels by undertaking a special mission." Medford place

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

This was an anthology that was a salute to the military. The three authors each wrote a story that had someone who was in the military or had served in the military at its core.

The stories were very different and my favorite was Home Sweet Home by Candis Terry. Least favorite was Letters From Pie Town by Lynne Hinton.

Home Sweet Home seemed most realistic to me in its approach. I loved how the tow

Good story. William and his men are in trouble for fighting so as punishment they are assigned to escort Pippa to Lisbon so she can be returned to England. He is not happy since it's possible he will miss the coming battle. Pippa is not happy sinc

Book rating (average of three stories)= 3 stars

The Bookish Miss Nelson by Cathy Maxwell
3 stars
I bought this anthology for Cathy Maxwell alone and while I enjoyed the short story, I think it would've been even better as a full length novel.

Letters From Pie Town by Lynne Hinton
2.5 stars
Not generally a fan of epistolary style stories and this one didn't let you close to the characters.

Home Sweet Home by Candis Terry
3.5 stars
Very good story...I loved the surprise aspect of the story.

The only redeeming part of this book is the novella by Candis Terry. The first two stories were flat and boring, but I really enjoyed the story by Terry. I am looking forward to reading more by this author. Glad I picked up some of her books recently!

I like the message but the stories were not all up to par
The first story is AWESOME! Five Stars!
The second story isn't even a story. no stars. i couldn't even read it.
The third story was good but really fast and a little bit silly. four stars.
