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-old girl finds him, it turns out to bring him face to face with God whom he has been so angry at.

A Homemaker, A Bride, and A Baby by JoAnn A. Grote

The Applesauce War by Ellen Edwards Kennedy
By the title, one might deduce this enjoyable story involves the elements of apples and feuding, which might be a right deduction.  Of course, then again, it might not.  One would have to read the story of two families who let a matter get out of hand when it shouldn’t.  The faith shared by two childhood friends helps Verity believe that true love with Pete may yet become her reality.
Sunshine Harvest by Debby Mayne
Josephine and Anna open the front door to hear the most unexpected news.  Now, their lives are irrevocably changed.  Daniel is a businessman and part-time pastor who not only brings devastating news, but also shows himself to be a living example of Christ’s love.  What will be the future of the mother and daughter along with the fruit groves that are their livelihood? 

New Beginnings by DiAnn Mills
Two childhood friends dream one day of becoming man and wife or at least one does till the later teenage years.  Now, the day of the wedding is here and no matter how much praying is being done feelings of love just aren’t there.  After the thousand mile journey to Ohio to set up a farmhouse and making it a home, the wonder of what lies ahead becomes even more fearful.  Will the marriage between Nicholas and Betsy remain or will they part, going their separate ways?
Each of these stories was unique and filled with adventure, hope and believing in God.  The story settings and time frames were not all the same.  The one thread all of them shared was believing in God.  Now, in order to believe in God the characters had to do something else, and that was realize that without God they couldn’t do anything in and of themselves.  What a truth to be reminded of regardless of the situation we find ourselves in.  Enjoy this collection of six special tales that will touch your heart and keep you turning pages late into the night!
My rating is 5 stars.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
