First Love Forever Romance Collection

First Love Forever Romance Collection
Today I get to feature  A Most Reluctant Bride by Cynthia Hickey which is only one of the wonderful stories in the First Love Forever Novella! Each blog stop will feature a story from this collection.  Happy Reading! Becca
A first love is never easily forgotten…and coming face to face with that person again can be awkward when the heartstrings are still holding on to the “what ifs.”
In settings from 1865 to 1910, nine couples are thrown back on the same path by life’s changes and challenges. A neighbor returns from law school. An heiress seeks a quick marriage. A soldier’s homecoming is painful. A family needs help. A prodigal son returns. A rogue aeronaut drops from the sky. A runaway bridegroom comes home. A letter for aid is sent. A doctor needs a nurse. Can love rekindle despite the separation of time and space?
1880 – Ozark foothill ranch: Maggie Spoonmore marries her father’s former foreman, Zach Colton in order to salvage her reputation, yet struggles to believe he married her for love and not her inheritance.
Authors: Suzanne Dietze, Cynthia Hickey, Marcia Gruver, Carrie Fancett Pagels, Martha Rogers, Lorna Seilstad, Connie Stevens and Jennifer Uhlarik

    A Most Reluctant Bride sounds really interesting. I know that insecurities can lead to all kinds of thoughts and both actions and non actions. sometimes they can be hard to get over. other times some of them can be simpler to get over. but the key is really giving them to the Lord and letting Him help us with them. I look forward to reading this book.
