I've read each of the three stories as Kindle eBooks, and I enjoyed them all. The characters came to life and the stores were extremely fun. I think my favorite story was Fiona's Knight of Dreams--I've lost count of the number of times I've read that particular story. I'm so glad that the eBooks have finally been combined into a paperback version.

She is captivated by Ellen’s six-year-old daughter Emma who is having identity problems facing the arrival of a new baby in the family. When Ellen goes into labor in the middle of a storm, Maggie must face her fears for Ellen’s sake. Along the way, she helps a family grow closer, but what about her hopes for the future? Can she get past the wall Marshall has set up? Does she really have a future here amongst the people she has grown to care for?
