A Merry Little Christmas - eBook
A cozy holiday read
A Merry Little Christmas is a Ã¢ÂÂcozy holiday read about two people from different worlds.Ã¢ÂÂ IÃ¢ÂÂm so happy that Anita allowed me to review this book. I found myself smiling on every page as I got acquainted with Frannie Martin and Charlie Landau.
Frannie Martin prepares to spend her holidays alone Ã¢ÂÂ again Ã¢ÂÂ on her Oklahoma farm. Then Charlie Landau sweeps in with an offer to buy it from her although all he has is wealth and polish Ã¢ÂÂ absolutely no farming experience Ã¢ÂÂ and a need to prove himself as worthwhile to his father. With Christmas songs crooning from the radio, Frannie teaches Charlie about country life with all its fun and foibles. Will the holidays that are quickly advancing on them break them apart or give them their dearest Christmas desires?
YouÃ¢ÂÂll want several copies of A Merry Little Christmas Ã¢ÂÂ one to keep and several to give as Christmas gifts. YouÃ¢ÂÂll be so pleased you did and so will be the recipients!

Wonderful Christmas Story
Okay, I wanted to give this a rating of a three or four--I promise, I did. After all, it is your typical romance, and there is little doubt how it will end. It has the typical poor, independent woman and the rich, robust man, and they fall head over heels in love at first sight. It even takes place on a farm. And the author sprinkles some wonderful Christian principles in there as well. This is typical, so what would possess me to rate it so high?
Anna Higman is smart author. She has written a romance that is sweet and clean but tackles some difficult issues. Have you ever had a dream that others ridiculed and did not support? What about racism in the 1950's? And, of course, any time a book adds the elements of music and Christmas, it just doesn't get much better than that. And when you add in romantic, humorous dialogue, well, I just have to give a five-star rating!
"Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the yuletide gay, from now on our troubles will be miles away." Yes, God does transform people, and there are some miraculous things that occur in this book. You know they have to happen, but it is still neat to see God change people. And by the end of the book, this song does ring true. No spoilers--read it yourself!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman ****
This is a great Christmas romance. Charlie Landau a wealthy city boy meets Franny Martin a poor country girl, when he shows up to purchase her farm. They discover a mutual love of music and so much more. Charlie fights to meet the demands of an overbearing father while, Franny fights for injustices. Franny is hired to teach Charlie how to become a farmer before leaving to chase her own dreams. They face obstacles and challenges with honor, dignity and love. When Charlie bought the farm he got more than he bargained for, just goes to show you opposites can be attracted to each other. The author Anita Higman did a great job bringing romance and humor together. She exposed the hurts that come with prejudice. I recommend this Christmas story to all who love romance and Christian fiction, a great love story for any time of the year.

Warm and wonderful Christmas story
A Merry Little Christmas is a delightful and heart-warming book. The main characters are interesting, funny, and charming. This book is easy-to-read, but hard to put down. I liked the short chapters, so I could squeeze in a little reading between other holiday activities. But, I read the second half of the book in one sitting, as I was anxious to know how everything turned out. This book has much to offer--tragedy, romance, conflicts between family members, conflicts in the community, and conflicts in the characters themselves. This is my favorite Christmas story of the year!
