About the book
When times are tough. . .. . .will love find a home?
Daddy’s Girl Glenna Moore has become accustomed to a life of hardship while following her father on his gambling jaunts across America. But when a night of gambling turns into catastrophe, will Glenna’s heart be capable of letting a young reverend’s kindness save her from despair? Reverend David Green trusts God in every action, but will his offer to help a desperate young woman backfire and uproot a past he would rather forget?
Dear Teacher Wherever Judith King goes, her physical flaw—one brown eye and one blue—follows her. As she adjusts to her life as a one-room schoolteacher in a Pennsylvania canal town, she insists that no man could fall in love with her. Single father Ernie Snyder is captivated by the beautiful new schoolmarm, but believes it is a hopeless case for a man like him to marry a woman like her. Can two stubborn souls learn to let love into their lives?
Twice Loved A position in a used toy shop is an answer to prayer for Bev Winters who finds herself widowed with a young daughter after World War II. But when her employer shows her surprising kindness, she is unsure how to react. After his wife’s death, Dan Fisher dutifully maintains her used toy shop and closes his heart to ever loving another woman. Then Bev Winters enters his life, and he is drawn to help her and her daughter. Will this working relationship turn into love?
My thoughts
Well let's go with the worst part of this book first, the stories weren't long enough. I wanted more. I have never read anything by Wanda Brunstetter that was not an Amish novel before and I was taken by her stories. I read this whole book in one sitting. My favorite story was well, I better rephrase that and say my favorite part of Daddy's Girl was how Reverend Green ended up saving Glenna. And my favorite part in Dear Teacher was when Judith finds out who was writing the unsigned notes in the box in her class and my favorite part in Twice loved is Christmas day.

I was not paid for this review, I did however receive a copy of the book for my Kindle from NetGalley. The opinions of this book are mine and mine alone.
