Jane is a widow and she is out of money and hoping a man she boards a train to visit with her daughter will be an answer to her problems but a snowstorm strands her with a man who may steal her heart instead.
Ada is hoping to marry her beau but he suddenly changes his mind and disappears. A year later she is involved in an accident that he is injured in. Can they find their way back to each other?
This book has three short stories. They are not connected in any way other then being around the Christmas season.
What I liked: The first and third stories where my favorite and the first one about Karla was the one I liked the best. All three stories where well written.
What I did not like: Was not a big fan of the story with Jane. I just felt it seemed way to much happened in a very short period of time. Also parts of the story about Ada felt kind of unbelievable as well.
Over all this was a enjoyable short story collection and if you like historical fiction you will like these stories. It's a easy read but each story has enough depth to keep it interesting.
My husband picked this up for me & what a great read it was! All 3 stories were easy to get lost into. This is not just a Christmas book but something that you can enjoy anytime of the year. Each story is filled with pain, heartache, and yes redemption that happens during the Christmas season! But tell me how can you go wrong with these 3 authors? Pick it up today and get lost in one of the 3 stories. ENJOY.
I liked the 3 different stories in this book. Each story is unique and entertaining. I thought the authors all wrote with their individual style and this made each story enjoyable. The setting for these stories is the late 1800's during the holiday season. Each story has discussion questions at the end in case you want to read this book with a group.
I liked that the stories were not your typical romance. They had circumstance that could reflect a real life incident. The first story is about a girl who has had her heart broken and must learn to trust and love again. The second story is about a train ride that leads to a very different place then expected. The final story is about doing good for the Lord. Of the three stories this one was the least exciting.
I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the first two stories a lot and felt the characters really developed and the story was interesting. The final story was not as well developed and had parts that just did not make sense in the context of the story. I would recommend this book though, and think anyone who likes Christian historical romances will enjoy this book.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
