This book review is for the novel "Among The Fair Magnolias" which is compilation of Four Southern Love Stories by four different authors.
Tamera Alexander, Shelley Gray, Dorothy Love and Elizabeth Musser.
I like when you get more than one story in a book. Whether it is really fleshing out the other secondary characters so that their story features too or one like this where you get four different stories all together in one cover.
In "To Mend A Dream" by Tamara Alexander, you get not only the southern angle to this story but you get a bit of a mystery as well. I like it when the book keeps me guessing as to what is going to happen by the end and to actually get me invested in the characters and how their "lives" turn out.
In "An Outlaw's Heart" by Shelley Gray, You get a story of possible redemption. How hard is it to forgive people who have hurt you. I think pretty much everyone has had someone in their life hurt them, no matter how big or small the hurt is you still need to be able to forgive. Can this story have a happy ending beyond just forgiveness?
In "A Heart So True" by Dorothy Love, You have a girl who loves someone desperately. But her family wishes her to wed someone else to help her family. Will love or family loyalty win out in the end?
In "Love Beyond Limits" by Elizabeth Musser you get a story set around convictions. How strong are they? Can our heroine push them aside to marry the "proper" choice? Or will she follow her heart?
You get a lot of good but different stories in this one novel and is an interesting combination in my opinion.
Hope you all have a good week and have something good to read!
