Summary

What is it that captures someone's heart? A touch, a smile, a spark that lasts a lifetime. 
Love is something that is shared by all and every couple has their unique story of how they met. This anthology of romantic short stories ranges in time from the late 1800s to the modern day with tales of the first glimpses of romance. 
From a tale of immigrants finding each other on Ellis Island to an accidental encounter in a crowded bar to an online romance, these stories are poignant and heartwarming, tinged with humor and a sense of inevitability. There may be a difference between his version and hers, but it is always the same chronicle of the stirrings of love. 
Join this journey for ten distinctly different Midwestern couples and read their first-person accounts of how they met. Discover how their journeys of love began!

    Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there's tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there's Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures — including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.
    Based on Louisa May Alcott's childhood, this lively portrait of nineteenth-century family life possesses a lasting vitality that has endeared it to generations of readers.

    The trials and tribulations of settling the western half of America over a hundred and fifty years ago are legendary. With the numerous mountain ranges came the inevitable need for the settlers to cross them. This premise is what prompted Zimbell House to create this anthology.  
     
    The Mountain Pass tells twelve such tales from the perspective of eleven new writers. Some are heart-wrenching, and others are humorous, but all give a glimpse of the courage and perseverance it took for these brave souls to make it through the mountain pass.
