Sweet Grove Beginnings Boxed Set, Books 1-5

Introducing the entire Sweet Grove Beginnings series, following the five Bryants in 1840s Texas in their search for redemption, family, and of course, true love…

 Love’s Journey

Elizabeth Morrison has inherited a small fortune, but a woman in 1840 doesn’t usually go it alone. With her sister Katherine missing, her journey takes her through an abandoned orchard, and she falls in love with derelict Sweet Grove – and its previous owner, Jonathan Bryant.

Will they learn that love is always ready to take you on a different journey?

Love’s Chance

Katherine Morrison’s elopement at 16 ended badly – and there’s only one occupation for a fallen woman in 1841. When a chance letter reveals the location of Katherine’s sister at Thomas’ family orchard, they cannot help but grasp at the opportunity to find their families again.

Could the chances that continue to come their way be more than just coincidence?

Love’s Gamble

Aaron Bryant inherited all the worst from his father: his temper, his name, and his gambling habit. Thrown out of the family home, when he accidentally loses to a saloon owner with better looks than morals, Phoebe Vazquez has a chance through blackmailing him of gaining a life that she wanted.

Yet Phoebe has secrets of her own, and she’s not willing to bet that anyone would accept her past…

Love’s Cure

When Dr Gerald Anderson arrives at Sweet Grove, it’s hard not to be suspicious: after all, he was hounded out of his last practice last year in 1843. Left blind by an incompetent doctor, Mariana’s got no kindness for medical men but the warmth of Sweet Grove is hard to ignore.

Can she learn that healing may be needed on the inside as well as on the outside?

Love’s Blossom

Abigail Bryant is the youngest of the Bryant tribe, and the most ignored – which is just how she likes it, just tending her herb garden. Enter Laken Weston, a travelling tinker who refuses to put down roots but has the exact seeds that Abigail needs, along with the know-how to get them to grow.

Without the support of Sweet Grove and the faith they cling to, will they ever see love grow?

This complete boxset offers a clean and inspirational journey into a world of family, community, and love – with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and plenty of happily ever afters!

Elizabeth Morrison has inherited a small fortune, but a woman in 1840 doesn’t usually go it alone.

With her sister Katherine missing and both parents gone to be with the Lord, she has no choice but to find her own way. Her journey takes her through an abandoned orchard, and she falls in love with derelict Sweet Grove – and its previous owner, Jonathan Bryant.

Can Elizabeth carve her own journey and make a home for herself while her sister is still missing? Can Jonathan be brave enough to put the past behind him and find purpose again?

Or will they both learn that life never goes in the direction you think, and love is always ready to take you on a different journey?

Do you believe in second chances?

Katherine Morrison’s elopement at 16 ended badly – and there’s only one occupation for a fallen woman in 1841. Too ashamed to return to her family and too destitute to avoid the work that shames her, she puts her faith in the Lord that he will save her from her own mistakes. But when a customer collapses before her work is done, she has a chance of returning back to the life that she wanted.

But that life is gone. Her sister Elizabeth has moved on, and Thomas Bryant has his own agenda. He’s fallen for the delicate yet fierce woman who seems to have a past that even he cannot untangle. When a chance letter reveals the location of Katherine’s sister at Thomas’ family orchard, they cannot help but grasp at the opportunity to find their families again.

Could the chances that continue to come their way be more than just coincidence?

And can either of them find any happiness in the lives that they have chosen?

This is the second in the Sweet Grove Beginnings series that explores just how the town of Sweet Grove was planted. You can read the first book, 'Love's Journey', to discover how Thomas Bryant's older brother is desperately trying to keep Sweet Grove alive.

Series: Sweet Grove Historical, Book 3

Aaron Bryant inherited all the worst from his father: his temper, his name, and his gambling habit. Thrown out of the family home by his brother Jonathan, he survives one wager at a time, never finding the hope and security that Sweet Grove gave him in his youth, in the 1820s. But when he accidentally loses even the clothes on his back to a saloon owner with better looks than morals, Phoebe Vazquez has a chance through blackmailing him of gaining a life that she wanted.

But Aaron has his own agenda. He wants to return to Sweet Grove, his childhood farm, and buy it back from whoever bought it after his father lost it – and kick his own dependency on the thrill he receives from the dice. When the opportunity to return there arrives, and with a wife in tow, he can’t help but grasp at it. Yet Phoebe has secrets of her own, and she’s not willing to bet that anyone would accept her past. Will either of them learn that there’s something – or someone – out there that they do not need to gamble on, but depend on?

Series: Sweet Grove Historical, Book 4

Do you believe love is blind?

When Dr Gerald Anderson arrives at Sweet Grove, it’s hard not to be suspicious: after all, he was hounded out of his last practice last year in 1843, and he’s only accepted when trainee pastor Aaron Bryant accepts him.

The pastor’s sister Mariana, on the other hand, is not so sure. Left blind by the incompetence of a previous doctor, she’s got no kindness for medical men, and a determination to leave him in the cold.

But the warmth of Sweet Grove and its small community is hard to ignore, even when you want to withdraw from the world, and soon Gerald finds himself thrust into Mariana’s path.

Can she learn that healing may be needed on the inside as well as on the outside? And will Gerald’s past prevent healing that even he can’t perform?

This is the fourth in the Sweet Grove Beginnings series that explores just how the town of Sweet Grove was planted.

Love's Blossom

Author:
Series: Sweet Grove Historical, Book 5

What do you do if love can't blossom?

Abigail Bryant is the youngest of the Bryant tribe, and the most ignored – which is just how she likes it.

Tending her herb garden is the way that she can support the growing town without talking too much to anyone, but the arrival of the new doctor demands a different kind of herb, and she needs seeds.

Enter Laken Weston, a travelling tinker who refuses to put down roots but has the exact seeds that Abigail needs, along with the know-how to get them to grow. Her embarrassment almost overcomes her, but they strike a deal: he stays for the growing season, and he receives free bed and board. And then he leaves.

But affection, like their seeds, finds a warm and welcoming home, and soon love starts to blossom between them. But like any new plant, without God’s face to smile upon it, that growth can wither and die.

Abigail’s fear and Laken’s restlessness threaten to become the weeds that may smother any joy that may thrive between them, and without the support of Sweet Grove and the faith they cling to, they may never see love blossom.
