Product Description

Journey along with American settlers who learn that despite where the trail takes them or how primitive their lodgings may be Christmas is all about the heart. Determined to honor Christ's birth, these pioneers find a way to make Christmas happen in places like a cave, a tipi, and a dugout. Modern readers will enjoy a peek into life before commercialism took over the sacred day, distracting us from the true blessings of faith, hope, and love.

Publisher's Description

Journey along with American settlers who learn that despite where the trail takes them or how primitive their lodgings may be Christmas is all about the heart. Determined to honor Christ’s birth, these pioneers find a way to make Christmas happen in places like a cave, a tipi, and a dugout. Modern readers will enjoy a peek into life before commercialism took over the sacred day, distracting us from the true blessings of faith, hope, and love. Enjoy nine original novellas of Christmas romance as penned from many of today’s leading Christian authors, including Lauraine Snelling, Kathleen Fuller, and Vickie McDonough.

Author Bio

CBA and ECPA best-selling novelist Kathleen Fuller is the author of over twenty novels and novellas, including An Amish Wedding, which was recently voted as the number one collection of the year by the Family Fiction 2012 Readers Choice Awards. Kathleen lives with her husband and three teenaged children in Geneva, Ohio. When she’s not writing she enjoys teaching, swimming, and traveling.

Bestselling author Vickie McDonough grew up wanting to marry a rancher, but instead, she married a computer geek who is scared of horses. She now lives out her dreams in her fictional stories about ranchers, cowboys, lawmen, and others living in the West during the 1800s. Vickie is the award-winning author of over thirty published books and novellas. Her books include the fun and feisty Texas Boardinghouse Brides series and End of the Trail, which was the OWFI 2013 Best Fiction Novel winner. Whispers on the Prairie was a Romantic Times Recommended Inspirational Book for July 2013, and A Pioneer Christmas Collection was on the CBA Bestseller's list for two months. Vickie is a wife of thirty-eight years, mother of four grown sons and one daughter-in-law, and grandma to a feisty eight-year-old girl. When she's not writing, Vickie enjoys reading, antiquing, watching movies, and traveling. To learn more about Vickie's books or to sign up for her newsletter, visit her website: www.vickiemcdonough.com

Lauraine Snelling is an award-winning author with over 75 published titles including two horse series for kids. With more than 3 million books in print, Lauraine still finds time to create great stories as she travels around the country to meet readers with her husband and rescued Basset Sir Winston.

Margaret Brownley loves hearing from her readers and can be reached through her website. The author of more than twenty novels, she was a 2010 RITA finalist and INSPY nominee and is currently writing western romances for Thomas Nelson. For more love and laughter in the old West, check out Margaret's latest books at www.margaretbrownley.com

Marcia Gruver’s southern roots lend touches of humor and threads of faith to her writing. Look for both in her Texas Fortunes and Backwoods Brides series. When she’s not perched behind a keyboard, you’ll find her clutching a game system controller or riding shotgun on long drives in the Texas Hill Country. Lifelong Texans, Marcia and her husband Lee have five children. Collectively, this motley crew has graced them with a dozen grandchildren and one great-granddaughter—so far.

Cynthia Hickey grew up in a family of story tellers and moved around the country a lot as an army brat. Her desire is to write real, but flawed characters in a wholesome way that her seven children and five grandchildren can all be proud of. She and her husband live in Arizona where Cynthia works as a monitor in an elementary school.

Navy wife Michelle Ule is a writer, genealogist, and Bible study leader. She graduated from UCLA with a degree in English Literature and married a submarine officer whom she followed all over the world with their four children. Michelle lives in northern California with her family.

Editorial Reviews

As the weather turns cooler and the leaves start to turn and homes start settling in for the holidays, this is the perfect book to turn to on those cool fall or cold winter evenings.
 
A book full of quick, easy to read, encouraging stories that will help put you in the Christmas spirit. Each author brings a story that will capture you from the first page to the last.
 
I love these collections because they are not meant to be in depth or full of thought provoking content. They are meant to bring warmth, hope, love and faith by way of short stories. Yes, they can be very predictable at times but that is part of the charm of each collection.

A Pioneer Christmas is a beautiful collection of historical Christmas stories. I loved them all but Buckskin Bride by Vickie McDonough was my favorite of the nine. Most of these authors are new to me and will be looking for more full length stories by them in the future. I recommend this book to get you into the holiday spirit.

This collection brought me the scent of Christmas cooking and the tingle of snow. There's excitement, occasional violence and good fellowship. A PIONEER CHRISTMAS COLLECTION is writing of impressive quality by seven female authors and any reader would be glad to find this under the Christmas tree.

This collection was a nice harkening back to days past and shows the reader that, despite the difficulties faced, these pioneers still made Christmas a priority. We could perhaps learn a thing or two from them.

Overall a terrific collection of wonderful stories. I enjoyed every single one. A terrific Christmas gift for you or a friend :)

You will not be able to finish this book without seeing that God is our ultimate shelter and love. He sent or provided each of the characters just what was needed when they needed provision and help. Each novella has a satisfying ending but I wished the stories would keep going. I wanted to know more about the characters’ lives because I was so drawn into their situations. To me that is the sign of a well written story which is why I recommend this as a great Christmas read to fans of Inspirational Romance and Historical Fiction.

    Overall this collection is a good value at the sale price, but not all of the stories in the collection were good stories and I skipped one all together because it was not the type of story I like to read. The price was good for the number of good stories in the collection, but I was uncomfortable putting this in our church library as a couple of the stories had poor Christian values.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Shannon McNear
Located in: Goose Creek, SC
Submitted: July 19, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a Midwestern farm girl transplanted to the Lowcountry of South Carolina (20-some years now), homeschooling mother-of-many, military wife, history geek.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I love the Revolutionary War era and find myself intrigued by its political and cultural currents. It's a natural setting for the emotional conflict inherent in good romance.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A fresh appreciation, not only for the cost of liberty, but also the complexity of the time and its issues. A deeper understanding of God's grace. And of course, enjoyment of the give-and-take between Micah and Truth!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I have to admit that I went for a bit of a Louis L'Amour "Sacketts" vibe with this story, with a faith-based slant. I also love Stephen Bly, Deeanne Gist, Julie Klassen, Elizabeth Camden, and too many other authors to name.
