A Season to Sow, A Season
to Reap, a Season to Love

Homesteads fueled the expansion of America, and these farms depended on families to run them. In this collection of six down-on-the-farm stories, marriages are formed often with the future of the land in mind before romance.

One Little Prayer by Kimberley Comeaux
The Tie That Binds by Susan K Downs
A Homesteader, a Bride, and a Baby by JoAnn A Grote

“The Farmer's Bride Collection” by six different authors, listed below with their own stories, is book that takes you all over the country. No two stories are the same, each with their own story-line and their own message. Some were better than the others but over all it was a wonderful book to read over a busy day since none of the stories are overly long. I think the longest story in the whole book is about 70 pages, so each one is a fairly quick read.

I hope that everyone who reads this colle

I have read the another book the authors have out called A Texas Brides Collection: 9 Romances from the Old West. The book was actually pretty good. So when I was able to receive The Farmer's Bride Collection from NetGalley I was happy to start reading.

I have to admit I got stuck with the first story in the collection. One Little Prayer by Kimberley Comeaux. Tessa Wise and her daughter Louanne live on a farm which she is all alone on as her husband passed away in the. Along comes James Larabee

I was checking out the latest Christian romances and I happened to stumble on this book. I love reading the shorter stories because I never have a lot of time to sit and read a whole novel. I haven't read this particular book, but I did realize that I've read the first 2 stories in another book that featured children. (Can't remember the name) Those stories by Kimberley Comeaux and Susan K Downs were adorable. I don't think I've read the rest of them in the book, but I'm looking forward to revis ...more

One Little Prayer by Kimberley Comeaux
In One Little Prayers, I fell in love with nine year-old Louanne and was wishing for a new dad for her as much as she was! A very special little girl and a very special s

THis is a lovely collection of 6 clean, historical romance novellas, each about 9 or 10 chapters long.

There were a few I really loved, One was "A Homesteader, A Bride and A Baby" about a woman who travels to visit her sister and family in Minnesota only to find that they all (except the baby) died of diptheria before she got there. So she stays on the farm to bring up the baby. A nearby homesteader helps her on the farm and well..I won't give away what happens but I thought it was pretty sweet.

One Little Prayer by Kimberley Comeaux
Set in the south a few years after the Civil War, this is a cute story that is romantic with touches of humor that will delight the heart of the reader. A young embittered man is wounded while on his journey until a bullet brought him to the ground. When a little 9-year-o

all different spins on settings for romance between the guy n gal. But I enjoyed Susan Downs story of the orphan train n how singularly they were chosen to have a child then ended up a family. DiAnn's story got me thinking which makes the story worthwhile. Especially going into married life n not knowing love n then how to love... Applesauce war seemed like it was a story that could very well have happened...

This collection of stories is entertaining and well written. Because there are multiple stories it is a thick book! I liked the variety of authors as it gives you an idea of their individual writing styles. I am sure you will find one or more authors you like and will want to look up and read more of their books. These particular stories are historical Christian fiction. I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the stories but thought that some of them could have had more likable characters. I would ...more

First story so-so, second Ok third through sixth same old same old of the first two.

Boy or girl doesn't think God can love that person.... along comes someone that says yes He can and they fall in love, before the relationship with God is made.

They find out God loves the and life is sunset and roses.

Barfing, worse than the usual romance fare found at the grocery stores.

No reason to read. Boy meets girl, falls in love and viola 77 pages later all is well!
