Beloved authors Julia Quinn, Elizabeth Boyle, Laura Lee Guhrke, and Stefanie Sloane deliver the stories of four friends from Mrs. Rochambeaux’s Gentle School for Girls who find an old sixpence in their bedchamber and decide that it will be the lucky coin for each of their weddings . . .
Julia Quinn’s prologue introduces her heroine, Beatrice Heywood, and the premise for Four Weddings and a Sixpence.
In Stefanie Sloane’s unforgettable story, an ever-vigilant guardian decrees that Anne Brabourne must marry by her twenty-first birthday. But love finds her in the most unexpected of ways.
Elizabeth Boyle tells the tale of Cordelia Padley, who has invented a betrothed to keep her family from pestering her to wed. Now she’ll need to borrow one to convince them she’s found her true love.
In Laura Lee Guhrke’s story, unlucky Lady Elinor Daventry has her sixpence stolen from her and must convince the rake who pilfered the coin to return it in time for her own wedding.
“ . . . and a Sixpence in Her Shoe”
Great book, does not disappoint :)
Over all, the book doesn't have enough pages to go truly in depth - they are short stories after all - but the main content is really well done. The stories for each of the girls ties in nicely throughout the four stories and lend a a nice balance to the book over all.
I have become an avid reader of Elizabeth Boyle's and really love her works. This book introduced me to two new authors and allowed me to revisit Julia Quinn's writing style. I was happy to see that all four authors were from the northwest, which I am sure made collaboration easier :) Well done ladies! Let's do this again soon!
4 wonderful stories that flow so well....
