More Than Words - Volume 7 by Carly Phillips, Donna Hill and Jill Shalvis

Recently I was asked to review a very special book - "More Than Words - Volume 7" - featuring three of Harlequin's popular romance writers, Carly Phillips, Donna Hill and Jill Shalvis.  I was thrilled to read this book, and even more thrilled to share it with you here.

About The Book:

Each and every one of us has the ability to effect change—to make our world a better place. The dedicated women selected as this year's recipients of Harlequin's More Than Words award have changed lives, one good deed at a time. To celebrate their accomplishments, some of our bestselling authors have honored the winners by writing stories inspired by these real-life heroines.

We hope More Than Words inspires you to get in touch with the real-life heroine living inside of you.
In Carly Phillips's Compassion Can't Wait, two high school sweet hearts are reunited years later, as if by fate, and discover that if you believe in yourself and each other, anything is possible.
Donna Hill's Someplace Like Home tells the story of how one woman's dream becomes reality, as three special people learn that it's never too late to form a loving family.

In Jill Shalvis's What the Heart Wants, an honorable man must learn to forgive himself to regain the trust of the ded icated teacher who is the love of his life.

Each of these amazing stories absolutely touched my heart. Preceeding each story is a short piece about the real-life organization featured in the fictional story and the fantastic women who are involved in running them, plus a short word from each author on why contributing to this worthy project was so important to them.

I highly recommend this wonderful book to anyone who needs a little pick-me-up in their life. As the introduction to the Harlequin More Than Words mission statement says - "Each and every one of us has the ability to effect change—to make our world a better place."
