Reviews - What do customers think about Olympic Memories: Olympic Hopes/Olympic Cheers/Olympic Dreams/Olympic Goals (Inspirational Romance Collection)?
Wonderful Historical Romance! Jan 27, 2008
This anthology was developed in a completely original way. It started out with a historical portrayal of the first Olympics in 1896, and proceeded through the Olympics in Lake Placid, NY in 1932, the 17th Olympics in Rome to the Winter Olympics in Calgary in 1988. There were wonderful historical facts about the Olympics, as well as each of the locations. The characters were believable and suited to time and place. The authors did a wonderful job of seamlessly connecting the involved family members from each generation, although I would have liked to know how the last story progressed from an American Olympian to a niece that was born in France and a little more about Sophie's parents. All in all, this anthology was packed with all that I love, faith in God first and foremost, and then facts and history of countries other than my own. I enjoyed this volume immensely, and recommend it highly!
