Reviews - What do customers think about Schoolhouse Brides: The Reluctant Schoolmarm/School Bells and Wedding Bells/Dear Teacher/Prairie Schoolmarm (Heartsong Novella Collection)?
Good Read Jan 17, 2008
I really enjoyed the stories in this Novella. I have a soft spot for teachers from days past, and I think these ladies did a fantastic job portraying the realities and hearts of many young women who were put in a one room classroom with very little resources. The Christian perspective was very touching. A great read for mother and daughter alike.

Good Collection of Novellas Jan 28, 2006
It took me about four hours to read, and boy, was it worth all the time. I loved this collection. I enjoy reading these types of books, but the whole "teacher" aspect grabbed me because that is my dream occupation. I truly enjoy the reading material that this gave me.

But when the pursuer gets too close, Meredith finds out of Brit's true feelings.
*The only one that was a little slow and boring was the second novella, PRARIE SCHOOLMARM, it was a little hard to understand, due to some Swedish language used to make it seem real.*
