When I grabbed this book to fill the Oklahoma spot on my Literary Escapes Challenge I thought it was released last year and eligible for Flashback Friday. On Sunday I realized that was not the case 😥 So I will be skipping Flashback Friday this week.

From the dusty chaos of the land run to the present day, these are the tales of loves and legends of people who lived in a small house in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Oh, the stories these walls can tell. . .
18 Redbud Lane takes readers to Guthrie, Oklahoma as we read about multiple generations of a family that made their home there starting in 1889.
Racing for His Dream by Vickie McDonough – tells the story of Reece Redding staking his claim on land for his home and hardware store. 1889 – 1907
The Mail Carrier by Kathryn Spurgeon – The Redding family story continues with Alice and her dreams. 1935 – 1942
The Choice to Love by Shannon D. Pearson – Robin Redding cuts hair in her parent’s shop but is struggling with the loss of her true love in the war. This one really tugged at my heartstrings, 1946
Nebulous Affairs by Kat Lewis – Stella Redding’s exciting story. 1968 – 1975
Pins ‘n Nails by Shannon D. Pearson and Alanna Radle Rodriguez – Naomi Redding is in the family building with her historical sewing business and just when her dream is about to be realized a monkey wrench is thrown into the works. 1983 – 1985
New Beginnings by Alanna Radle Rodriguez – Naomi’s daughter Cassie gets horrific news that changes her life. This one tugged at my heartstrings too. 2004 – 2007
All the stories are Christian based and feature strong characters facing grueling times. I really enjoyed that one story built from the last and the connection the kept the stories grounded. That being said each author put their own twist on their story and their different styles are evident. Combined together the book is novella length which makes a nice little afternoon escape.
