Vic's Media Room - Victor Gentile

"The Prairie Romance Collection" is great fun to read.  Each story, though different, gives you the sights and sounds and feel of living on The Great Prairie.  This is a book where you wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, make yourself comfortable in your favorite chair and have warm cider to drink as you savor each story.  All the stories are so well written and the romance is perfect, tender not overboard or forced.  Take a look at the two fold out sleeves on the book to really give you the picture of what the prairie looked like.  I enjoyed this book and look forward to more collections like this.

LINDA FORD draws on her own experiences living in the Canadian prairie and Rockies to paint wonderful adventures in romance and faith. She lives in Alberta, Canada, with her family, and she writes as much as her full-time job of taking care of a parapelgic and four kids, who are still at home, will allow. Linda says, 'I thank God that He has given me a full, productive life and that I'm not bored. I thank Him for placing a little bit of the creative energy revealed in His creation into me, and I pray I might use my writing for His honor and glory.'

She’s delved into romance, fantasy, history, and is toying with time travel. Writing will always be a part of her life. “The more I take time off to allow my body to relax, the more active my brain gets. I’m have way too much fun to stop.”

In first grade, Janet Spaeth was asked to write a summary of a story about a family making maple syrup. She wrote all during class, through morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess, and asked to stay after school. When the teacher pointed out that a summary was supposed to be shorter than the original story, Janet explained that she didn’t feel the readers knew the characters well enough, so she was expanding on what was in the first-grade reader. Thus a writer was born. She lives in the Midwest and loves to travel, but to her, the happiest word in the English language is home.

Prairie Romance Collection: 9 Historical Romances from 19th Century America 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Some good pioneer stories  --   I really enjoy the omnibus books with the short stories. They may take a while to read but each story tells how the pioneers had to depend on faith and even if they are afraid to step out in faith when they do it usually turns out for the good of each party involved. I just have to admire the hard work our ancestors went through to build this country and their determination to succeed.
