4 Stars Out Of 5
December 23, 2011
My favorite novella was Kelly Long's Christmas Cradles which I would have given five plus stars. I also enjoyed Beth Wiseman's A Choice to Forgive, 5 Stars. However the other two novellas were thin on characterization and story line and I was quite disappointed in the listen, 3's on those.
Kelly Long's novella was definitely worth reading on its own. A strong character, an Amish midwife, Anna Stollis, falls for an equally strong handsome and capable young man, Asa Mast, as they go about delivering babies one stormy Christmas night. The hero and heroine are in their late twenties.
Kelly Marie Long is one of my new favorite authors. She really knows how to craft believable characters and her romances are the best around. Grab this book and curl up by the fire for a great read as Anna and Asa bring new life into the world while beginning their own lives together!
