    This was a wonderful book. I wish I would have had a chance to review it when I first finished it, I was on a short vacation with my family. This is a romance that spans generations. It starts with a Dowager who passes along a locket she received from her husband when they were marr...

    I enjoyed each of the stories in this collection by four of Bethany House's strong authors! It was neat that they took place in different eras, connected by the heirloom brooch that is passed down the maternal line. With each story I was immersed in the setting and characters, and a fu...

    Having a book that follows generations is always fun. I've read things by these authors before, and I've loved them. Seeing them come together to do a holiday novella collection was rather fun. It's hard to pick a favorite one since I really enjoyed all four of them. This collection co...

    Legacy of Love by Kristi Ann Hunter What a sweet novella! I read this in one sitting this morning with my coffee, and what a lovely indulgence it was. A Christmas-y feeling permeates much of this story, reminding the reader that it doesn't matter the day, one can always celebrate Chri...

    Nothing like four talented authors getting together to write everyone?s favorite genre: Christmas novella. I thought the idea of a brooch being passed down through generations fantastic! And what a bittersweet beginning with the telling of its own story ? Tis the season to revi...

    As the author of one of the stories this was an extra fun book for me. While we collaborated on the overall stories, the details were left to each author. Reading the stories before mine was like hitting a gold mine of ancestry information and the story after mine was a peek into the f...

    Kristi Ann Hunter starts out the novellas with ?Legacy of Love.? It was a wonderful tale. I loved the spunky grandma who liked to really live and have fun while her family tried to ignore her scandalous behavior. Her companion doesn?t realize grandma is also a matchmaker. I laugh...

    What a wonderful collection of novellas! I thoroughly enjoyed each and every story! I also loved the connection of the piece of heirloom jewelry that traveled through the ages and tied all of these romantic stories together. This collection is definitely one that should not be missed. ...

    Probably the most unique and cleverly written set of novellas I've ever read! Every set of short stories will have some kind of connecting theme, but this has knocked it out of the park! Starting with Kristi Ann Hunter's story, set in late 18th century England. The beginnings of th...

    Kristi Ann Hunter's contribution to this collection really makes the book. I laughed and had my heart broken all in one little novella. The grandmother character reminded me of my own grandmother. Reading this story made me miss her more. I also loved Karen Witemeyer's story. And I...

    I've never been a big fan of novellas though I do read them, I don't like that there isn't a lot of character development. I wasn't even planning on reading this novel because there were too many authors in my opinion! But I'm a sucker for e-books that are deeply discounted. My favorit...

    I purchased this collection mostly for the novellas by Karen Witemeyer (a longtime favorite author) and Kristi Ann Hunter (a newer favorite author). I've read a few things by Becky Wade, but I've never read anything by Sarah Loudin Thomas, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This coll...

    What a treasure trove collection of stories! I love the over-arching theme of following along the journey a family heirloom takes?a luckenbooth brooch given to four generations. Legend has it that whoever owns this brooch will find true love! First passed down to Sarah Gooding in 182...

    I don?t always go for novella collections, partly because the stories tend to meld together in my mind after I've read a couple of them, but there?s absolutely no chance of that happening with this collection. Each of these stories is set in a distinctly different time and place: E...

    I love these authors, so I am not the least bit surprised that I loved each of these novellas. As the description tells us these stories take place from 1820's Regency England to the present day. There are several different locations and different families all tied together by the Scot...
