I enjoyed reading the stories. If your looking for something to read that won't take a lot of time, I would recommend this book.  It has lots of shorter stories that you don't have to read all at once.

...I enjoyed all of these stories. I love having the short stories to read when I don’t have time for a full book. And I love the enjoyable stories in The Farmer’s Bride Collection. Each story is very well written and Barbour Books does an amazing job of packaging these stories into a beautiful book that you can proudly display in your home. I want to encourage you to pick up a copy of this collection of stories for many hours of joyful entertainment.

    Enjoyable reading with six short stories  --  

    I enjoy these collections of short stories, such a variety and usually very good stories. It's amazing that in the 'old' days people would meet, get married within days or weeks and they were good marriages that lasted. Today if someone gets married after a year people will tell you to wait until you know your 'intended' better. Also if more people would work at their marriages, be willing to forgive each other, discuss things instead of giving up there wouldn't be so many divorces. I liked each of these stories and would recommend this book to others. Wonderful stories of couples working together.
