Holiday Gift Guide Day 1 - Where Treetops Glisten: A Blog Tour and Review

About The Book:

The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime
Siblings forging new paths and finding love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas

Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America’s involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.

In Cara Putman’s White Christmas, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and a part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop. Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements—until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.

Abigail’s brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theater
in Sarah Sundin’s I’ll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded. But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete’s friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he’s no longer the bully she once knew?

In Tricia Goyer’s Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, “Merry” to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that’s precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.

The Turner family believes in God’s providence during such a tumultuous time. Can they absorb the miracle of Christ’s birth and His plan for a future?

My Review:

Oh yes, you know when I start posting reviews of Christmas themed novella's, that the holiday reading season is upon us! And this awesome novella from three of my favorite Christian authors is just the perfect read to start off the Christmas season.

Three authors. Three stories. And countless amazing characters and storylines that will get you excited for Christmas and all the joy that comes with the season.

 With each novella, you are brought back to a time of uncertainty and pain, yet despite this unknownness, joy abounds. The stories are all heartwarming and all three take you back to the era of WWII (one of my favorite era's to read about in historical Christian fiction). You will laugh at antics, you will cry at the heartbreak of war but your heart and spirit will be encouraged and inspired with each page read. I adored all the characters and while each book is a stand alone novella, the continuity that existed to pull all the stories together was flawless. A wonderful first Christmas read of the season, and one I will read over and over.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
