    I love historical fiction. If you can wrap romance up in it, all

    I love historical fiction. If you can wrap romance up in it, all the better. Highland Crossings is actually 4 stories that follows a brooch through four different generations from Scotland to America. The brooch ties all three stories together nicely. In “Healer of My Heart” Serena is accused of being a thief. She sneaks aboard the Thistle, a ship headed for America. She is caught by Colin Campbell who recognizes her healing abilities. He saves her because she uses her skills to help a family member. When they reach North Carolina his cousin Isabel welcomes her. Although she and Colin are attracted to each other, can she trust him with not only her life but her heart?

    In “Printed on My Heart” we meet Seona’s cousin Fiona. She finds herself being punished for being unemployed. In my opinion, whipping someone for not having a job was absolutely sadistic. She was rescued by Owain. She becomes their indentured servant. She begins to find love with Owain and with God.

    In “Sugarplum Hearts” Seren Cardew has come to possess the brooch. She sells it to open a candy shop. Finley Sinclair thinks he is God’s gift to women. He wants a simple life and he wants it with Seren. He proposes a deal with her to promote her confectioneries and benefit himself. First he has to win over Seren who doesn’t see him as God’s gift to women.

    The last story “Hearts Inheritance” we find Brynna Sinclair, lover of all things historical. She wants to open a museum. Her sister is currently in possession of the brooch. It doesn’t seem fair since she is the one who loves history. Enter Niall Cameron who has received an inheritance from his uncle. When his plans clash with Brynna’s, a woman he is falling for he decides he must find a way to get on her good side. When the brooch is stolen, he decides this might be the opportunity he was looking for.

    All four of these stories were wonderfully told. They carry with them lessons of healing, trust, love, relationships with people and God. I had not read anything by any of these authors before this book. It was a wonderful way to be introduced to four wonderful authors. This book along with others they have written are a must read.

    Good Read

    This is the 2nd book of the series Romancing America that I have read and I really like them. They are a group of shorter stories but they fit together in such a way that it seems like one book. I am looking forward to reading more of these books.

    What I liked: The first story starts out in Scotland with Seona. She sails to the new world to get away from certain death. Along the way she finds love and we learn about the early settlements of America. Each story has different plots and characters but builds on the story before it some. It’s also the same family just generations forward. A good read.

    What I did not like: The last two stories the two main characters did not know each other very long at all or spend a lot of time together yet they fell in love very fast. Just not as believable as the first two stories where there was more time (story would jump forward weeks or months) for the characters to interact.

    Over all I liked this book and recommend this book. It’s an easy and quick read which can be nice when your looking for something not as deep as a regular novel.

    Excellent Collection of Inspirational Romance Novellas!

    Laurie Alice Eakes, Pamela Griffin, Jennifer Hudson Taylor, and Gina Welborn did a fabulous job on this collection!

    Highland Crossing is a four-novella collection of Scottish immigrants, centered around an heirloom brooch.

    Healer of My Heart, By Pamela Griffin
    1739 - To keep from being killed, Seona sneaks aboard a ship sailing to America. A healer, on the crossing she saves Colin’s brother. When they reach the colony of North Carolina, Colin brings her under his wing, placing her in a home near his in an isolated settlement. I love this novella and felt like Pamela took me right to the backwoods of colonial North Carolina. Wonderful love story by a fabulous story-teller!

    1758 - Printed on My Heart, By Laurie Alice Eakes
    The really fun part of reading this novella was that I took Laurie Alice around Colonial Williamsburg, with Gina, last year when she interviewed the printer there. Laurie Alice is blind but the reader would never know that reading her work. This novella is yet another example of this author’s ability to pack a shorter book (novella) with unbelievable details without sacrificing the integrity of the story. Laurie Alice has you loving poor Fiona and her hero Owain before you can say “I do”!!!


    1789 – Sugarplum Hearts, By Gina Welborn
    Seren Cardew is a candy maker. Finley Sinclair, a new immigrant from Scotland, aspires to become a broker. Except that he has no clients! These two were made for each other!

    This is Gina Welborn’s debut. Well done, Gina!

    1815 - Heart’s Inheritance, By Jennifer Hudson Taylor

    Brynna Sinclair aspires to bring a museum to her town and cherishes history. She likes things to stay as they are. When Niall Cameron, a new Scottish immigrant, takes over at her workplace, she is sure his changes will bring ruin to the community. When he buys a building that Brynna has coveted for a museum, sparks fly.

    Jennifer Hudson Taylor has two other Scottish trade length books under her belt and it shows in her knowledge. She also lives in North Carolina, where the story is set!
