MORE THAN WORDS is a charitable endeavour by Harlequin Enterprises which honours women who have made outstanding contributions to their communities. Every year five charities and women are honoured and five best-selling authors are asked to write a story highlighting that cause (You can read more about the MORE THAN WORDS program HERE). This year's authors are Joan Johnston, Robyn Carr, Christina Skye, Rochelle Alers and Maureen Child.


I have to say I enjoyed this book SO much, and I don't always...more
Leslie (That Chick That Reads)
This novel is filled with stories filled with courageous, smart and very beautifully intellect woman. The characters were beautiful, the stories were soooo inspiring! I found myself cheering for each and every single one of them! It’s quite amazing how with these stories you can see the focus of family and strength. It honestly has filled me up with hope for the feature and I will really hope that we all can learn a thing or two from these women! I loved that I could get a glimpse of real-life w...more

This is the fourth More Than Words volume that I have read and they have all been moving, uplifting and well written. To read how ordinary women have come up with a charitable idea and run with it is amazing. That well known authors, many of whom I read and others that I will continue to look for books they have penned, have embraced the idea of writing a story based on a real life organization and its founder is truly heartwarming. I highly recommend this book along with the other volumes. I kn...more

I only read Robyn Carr's Sheltering Hearts. My heart broke for the main character, Dory who was still traumatized from her past abusive marriage. Dory was so traumatized that she was afraid to give her neighbor Clay a fair shot.

I really enjoyed the book & made me want to find a non-profit support group close to my home, to volunteer time and/or money!

A great read. :)

(Jan) The stories in this anthology were less about romance and more about the causes the authors were promoting, which I guess was the reason these were written. They were ok, but nothing great.

Almost Lost - J. Johnston (3.5*) 13 year old Miranda shows up at the police department insisting her bff Jackie is missing, as she's not heard from her all day. Miranda's mother is dead, and she lives w/her father, Seth, who is having a hard time moving on since his wife's death. Karen, the police office...more

Five light romance stories with the first two my favorites but the heartwarming aspect of this book is each story was about a charity. I just loved this line in the book 'my little sister had a conniption fit because someone closed her romance novel and lost the page.'
Tara
A great compulation of stories featuring strong willed women who have been put in certain situations and they have come out on top and forced themsevles and others to live life and help others!
Mareli
I just read Robyn Carr's story. It was a short story about a young mother, with a past abusing husband and her two children. And a hunky firefighter as neighbour!!

More Than Words Volume 6 is the second of these volumes that I had read. If you haven’t read one of theses books then you should check them out. What I most like about these books is that they introduce me to some really great people all over the world, doing wonderful things like…Katherine Chon with the Polaris Project. The Polaris Project is an organization made up of volunteers, FBI, and other law enforcement groups, who help provide resources for stopping and locating children of human traff...more

So inspiring. This book takes different real life women who have made a difference and shares some insight on what they do. It is very well done. I had never heard of the "more than words" series, but now I want to read each volume. These women are touching lives in their communities and beyond.

This is an interesting concept--having popular authors write short stories featuring charities that are close to their hearts. I like the idea, but the stories bogged down in the explanation and "selling" of the charities, I thought. The characters didn't really have time to develop, and the romances were somewhat awkward. That being said, I did find some new authors that I am looking forward to reading based on their contributions. And I definitely found some worthy causes that I didn't even kn...more

If it didn't have a short story in the series I'm reading then I wouldn't have read it.
Lesli
Short, sweet reads from several authors. Robyn Carr's story barely even nudged the Virgin River universe. She could have easily changed the characters (Mel, Paige, Jack, and Preacher) and this wouldn't have even had anything to do with the VR series. Overall, the stories are nice. The sentiment and intentions of the books are heartwarming.

This is a volume I bought because I'm a Virgin River addict. I did not find the stories in here to be riveting, I think that they spent too much time talking about the charity efforts and not enough time developing relationships among characters.

Enjoyable, but not so great.

I was disappointed in the overall tone of the short stories tucked in this book. They all had good causes and I can appreciate that, but the causes overpowered the storyline.

It was a good book. Very long but with alot of information. I had no idea of all these different concerns. I plan to look into at least one and try to get active in it
