My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Four unexpected letters. Four intrepid women. Four lives changed forever. Spanning a century and a continent, these romantic novellas will lead you on a journey through the landscape of love. Four young women find their lives altered after each receives a letter that set her on a new path From a Hudson River steamboat to a lush drawing room, from a carousel carver’s workshop to a remote hospital, you’ll be swept into the lives of women who are making their way in the world and finding love where they least expect it.”

Sincerely Yours is a collection of four novellas penned by four different authors – Jane Kirkpatrick, Amanda Cabot, Laurie Alice Eakes, and Ann Shorey.

Each of these four stories introduces us to four different women with one thing in common… each receives an unexpected letter. With each letter, lives are changed as these women set out on a path of discovery, redemption, mystery, romance and suspense. To say much more, will rob the reader of the twists and turns of each story.

I did enjoy these four stories. Each of them is under one hundred pages and yet, while that may seem too short… the skill of the authors in the character development and story telling brings the feeling and completeness of a novel twice it’s size. Very well done.
