A wonderful collection of stories spanning centuries, with a thread of hope, faith and love connecting them. I enjoyed them all! It was an interesting mix of history and characters from all walks of life. The message of hope is one we all need to hear and hang onto as trials come and go. The last story and wrap up with the connection to the Irish monastery and Vikings from the beginning, nicely tied them all together with the thread of hope. Recommend! (An ebook was provided by NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.)

Message in a Bottle Romance Collection, written by Heather Day Gilbert, Amanda Dykes, Maureen Lang, Jocelyn Green and Joanne Bischof. This collection is a book of love and HOPE spanning in time from 1170 with The Distant Tide. Gilbert takes us to Ireland...an Irish Princess finds herself in the midst of war...where could hope be found with a Viking raiding the castle?! Then we go to 1717, A Song in the Night, and Dykes takes us to Scotland! I love Scottish stories! Here's a quote I grabbed from this book by Duncan, "There is a difference between fleeing"...."and flying." Loved this! Can Meg find the hope she needs?! We then find ourselves in New York in 1798 in The Forgotten Hope. Lang introduces us a to a doctors family...namely a woman doctor and her father who wants her to stop doctoring and find herself a husband. Is there any hope she can find happiness giving up helping the sick to take care of a husband?! Next, we're into 1864 with Jocelyn Green's A River Between Us in Roswell, Georgia. This is such a moving story...South to North to South in the midst of war and uncertainty...where to find hope?! Then we finish off the book on Coronado Island, California in The Swelling Sea by Joanne Bischof. This was a challenged young woman and man both with their own medical issues...hope?! Most of these books I found that hope that was depicted within the stories and the message in the bottle! They were well written and most compelling to keep those pages turning. This book would be great for teen and up. Inspirational, romantic and full of hope! Recommended! I received this book from Netgalley. All thoughts and comments are honest and my own.
