Book description
These are a series of interconnected short stories.   Each of the authors writes a short story for one heroine, with Mrs. Trent's story being told in brief sections that tie the others together.

CONTENTS:
A walk through Valentine Parva / Kitty Grey
If fancy be the food of love-- / Jo Beverley
An afternoon gardening / Kitty Grey
A maid at your window / Carola Dunn -- A gentleman calls / Kitty Grey
April when they woo / Sheila Simonson
On the church porch / Kitty Grey
A maiden all forlorn / Ellen Fitzgerald
A talk with Toby / Kitty Grey.

When the widowed Mrs. Trent invited four young ladies to stay with her, she did not know Cupid would be one of the guests.  But what else can one expect when one lives in the village of Valentine Parva.

Among Mrs. Trent's guests are June, whose strong principles and bluestocking ways seem too great a challenge for any man.  But she had a romantic heart--and love finds a way.

Shy Philo, pretty and clever, but overshadowed by her charming and handsome older sister.  It is Philo who first catches a gentleman's eye, when she meets the mysterious young man whom village rumour calls a wizard.

Aquila, a seemingly cold and haughty beauty, fears that scandal in her family's past will keep her from the man she loves.  But that dashing gentleman has other ideas.

And pretty Katherine grew up without love and affection.  Her well-meaning mistakes may cost her the man she loves.

Mrs. Trent would have her hands full sorting out lover's tangles--if she herself were not distracted by the arrival of a man she knew long ago who has returned just in time for St. Valentines Day.  [from the jacket]
