"Three Rings for Alice": Love and respect in 1899 Milwaukee is as close as a phone call.
"Forgiven": When Henry and Jessie meet, it seems to be love at first sight until a shocking revelation tears them apart.
"The Pocket Watch": Looking for the past, an orphan and a young doctor find love and hope for the future.
"Flames of Hope": Love ignites in the midst of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
This is a nice collection of short stories. Each well written story has a clean romance with lessons learned along the way. They are the perfect "feel good " stories to listen to while commuting or working etc. The narration was beautifully done and definitely added to the enjoyment.

I got this book via audiobook boom. This book was four stories of young ladies who strove for independence and love during the turn of the twentieth century. The men that they met and fell in love with had mothers who wanted to choose their brides but they chose someone who was just right for them and each had to go against their parents and marry the one they loved not the one someone else thought was suitable for them. Both women and men were strong of character and faith. The narrator was very good and added to the story.

Four short stories about women at the turn of the century. Unique stories, wonderful narration and definitely worth a listen.
Really enjoyable historical romance, 4 short stories beautifully narrated by Rebecca Wilder.
If you're after something sweet that's written well you can't go wrong.
Any additional comments?
Brave New Century is four clean romances centering around strong, independent women at the turn of the twentieth century. Each story has a different author but the collection is all narrated by one person. This was a very enjoyable listen, with solid narration by Rebecca Winder. I would recommend Brave New Century.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.
Brave New Century
: Lisa Lickel, Paula Mowery, Kathleen Rouser, Teena Stewart
These four historical fiction novellas each have their own settings and characters. They are all sweet, clean romances that feature female protagonists developing into
strong women as the 1900's begin. All of the authors are new to me and I will look for other works by them.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Rebecca Winder.

This has four separate story based on the turn of the century. I wasn't expecting much but I was surprised to find that I really liked it. I wanted to finish listening to it in one sitting that's how good it is.
In each story the characters and plot is different. There were twist in a few of them, suspense, intrigue, romance (of course), friendships and family.
The book isn't perfect. Some of the females views tend to be more modern for that time period and because they are short stories there is no character build up. I would have liked to know a bit more about some of the characters. But even with these negative views I still love it and gave it five stars.
I would recommend this to everyone since it is a clean/sweet read which is suitable for all.
