Love Beyond Limits by Elizabeth Musser

I think reading these books where there are multiple stories in one book. Each of these stories are set in the 1800s which as we all know that is one of my favorite time periods to read about. Each of these stories have strong characters. These authors each did a good job of making you really get to know. I felt as if I could really see where they were talking about as if you could be a part of the stories. I highly recommend this series of books. Another nice thing is that the stories are a nice size so they read quickly.
