A great start to a wonderful series. This is a short read about Abe and Sera, secrets and how true love brings a solutions. Wonderful read!

This is the prequel to the Crawley Creek series. It is a very short story about how and why Abe and Sera came to be so important to the men and women of Crawley Creek. This book will pull at your heart strings and have you wiping tears from your eyes. There is more than one way to build a family (as I know personally) and Abe and Sera do it beautifully with open arms and hearts.

I'm thrilled that Ms King chose to take readers back to where it all began and tell the story of Abe and Sera Crawley. While Sera's heartbreak was gut-wrenching, the depth of her relationship with Abe and his unwavering love and support was breathtaking! A beautifully written short story with emotional depth and captivating characters.

This book is the prequel to the Crawley Creek series and gives the back story of Abraham and Sera (Seraphina) Crawley and how they decided to turn their ranch into a home for children who needed it. Sera and Abraham’s love story is what we all dream of having. While they struggle with their desire to have children, they come to realize that having each other is far more important. While this book doesn’t give details of the childhood of the men of Crawley Creek, readers can get great insight into how they were likely raised by showing us the type of people Abraham and Sera were. It is a definite must read!

Great foundation for the series. I wish it was longer but it was just a sneak peek for the foundation of the family.

As the prequel to the Crawley Creek Series, Beginnings is short, but oh so sweet! It packs a punch in the few pages it contains, creating a bond between the characters and reader. I could not help but feel a strong sense of sorrow for poor Sera and her diagnosis of being unable to conceive. Her husband, Abe, showed how deeply he loves her with every action, every word, and every thought he had. The ending had me crying like a baby! What a way to introduce these characters! All I can say is well done, Ms. King! I am going to have to read the rest of the series if this tiny, short, novella is this darn good! *copy was provided for review.

This is a short but sweet novella that tells a snippet of Abe and Sera's story. Sera has just found out that she is barren and unable to give Abe the children they have both dreamed about. With problems on the ranch and her husband about to leave on a business trip, the timing does not seem right to break the news. However, Abe has been with Sera since High School and so knows that something is wrong. Will these two be able to share the secret that lies between them? This is exceptionally well told and will tug at the heart-strings. It is the first book in the Crawley Creek series that I have read and I am completely looking forward to reading more. The love that flowed off the pages was almost tangible, especially considering the circumstances. I look forward to reading more. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
