Four Weddings and a Sixpence
Laura Lee Guhrke
Of course, when you have four world class
writers get together in one book, you will likely
have a terrific story. It's not a given though.
I have read other anthologies like this.
Connected but each their own. They are not
'With a sigh and a shake of her head, she carried on her way,
eager to complete the rest of her errands. As if to mock her, the
sixpence shifted in her shoe and dug in hard under her big toe.
"Really?" she said to her foot. If this was the sort of man the
lucky charm was going to bring her, she was going to chuck the
bloody thing in the lake.'
Anne, Bea, Cordelia and Elinor meet when they were
away at school, becoming fast friends.
One day, they find a coin in an old mattress.
Deciding the coin has special powers that help the
holder get married.
Each story is fun and a little special. The girls write
and keep up with each other after leaving school.
Some girls must marry, some want to and some
just do not want to. But the coin seems to be stronger
than they imagined. To me, it seemed like none of the
girls really believed in the power of the coin.
But then, who would take the chance??
It's a wonderful series of short stories all in one book.
If you are a fan of romantic anthologies, try this one.
I borrowed the copy I read from my library.
