Four short stories in one book. These are faith based stories of 4 young women who live in the same Arizona town and have become friends because each gives of their time and love to the children of the local orphanage. Each women is strong and capable of being on their own yet they still yearn for love. The stories of each of the ladies as the chosen male for them enters their lives are humorous and enjoyable.
I do not normally enjoy short stories because the characters never seem to be developed but in this book, I felt that I got a true sense of each ladies personalities and what they wanted from life and why.
A quick read that I would recommend.

I typically enjoy historical, Christian fiction. I love learning about places, lifestyles and events as I am entertained by the characters and the plot. The setting for this book was Cactus Corner, Arizona in the 1860s. Four different authors tell a story of a group of friends who are involved in helping the local orphanage. The authors did a good job of describing the setting. My only problem with that part is each author basically says the same thing. Also the some of the physical descriptions of the characters seem to be repetitive. Was a fun easy to read book but a bit too predictable.
