About the book:
Meet nine men and women whose competitive goals take them to state and county fairs between 1889 and 1930. From baking pie to polishing pigs, from sculpting butter to stitching quilts, everyone has something to prove to themselves and their communities. But in going for the blue ribbon, will nine women miss the greatest prize of all—the devoted heart of a godly man
A charming collection that made me smile and want to go to state and county fairs.
I enjoyed the different time periods in each novella as well as each of the nine young ladies’ talents.
Of course tensions run high and there’s some mistrust along the way but that added realism as each character worked long and hard to win the much coveted blue ribbon.
I was familiar with some of the authors and found some new to me authors that I liked quite a bit.
The message of faith is woven throughout each story.
Fun and fast reads that will be enjoyable to readers of all ages.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher through Netgalley for an honest opinion which I have given
