Great historicals for any time of year
December 22, 2015
Nine unique stories from the 1800s offer a great historic read with various settings and situations and plucky women who overcome difficulties. From a city-bred schoolteacher who struggles against immense odds in a rugged, old cabin trying to maintain order during a snowstorm to a widowed storekeeper in Brownsville, Oregon (a historic town where I used to live), these novellas share insights into life during the 19th century. The realistic characters all endure struggles with their situations and relationships, and each encounters unexpected romance. Christmas plays a role but is not the major focus of most stories so this book makes a fine read any time of year. Living up to its title, each piece includes a log cabin too, with the final one being a peeled-pine-log church. I recommend this hearty collection.
This is a good story of love and of healing. Sometimes adding children to the mix can accomplish wonders.
The Christmas Secret by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Keeping a secret is not always in the best interest of everyone concerned. This is heart-wrenching story.
Christmas Traps and Trimmings by Kelly Eileen Hake
Times were so difficult for women, who had little or no rights. Interesting story.
A Star in the Night by Liz Johnson
With the help of Jed, Cora learns to trust in God to help her through haunting nightmares of war. This is my favorite of the collection.
The Courting Quilt by Jane Kirkpatrick
Delightful romance focusing on the dilemma and resourcefulness of widows and unmarried women in Oregon, 1867.
Under His Wings by Liz Tolsma
I not only loved the spiritual symbolism in this romance, but I have to say--Noah ticks all the boxes as a superlative hero.
The Dogtrot Christmas by Michelle Ule
Sweet love story highlighting the hardships and joys of settling in Texas in 1836. Great spiritual theme on forgiving one another and oneself.
A Grand County Christmas by Debra Ullrick
Awnyas story is heartbreaking and illustrates extreme loss and cruel hardship. On the other hand, it depicts Gods provision and how He always works out everything for the good of those who love Him. It is a story of contrasts.
Christmas Service by Erica Vetsch
This story touches me the most, because of the spiritual issues and inner conflicts of the young protagonist, Beth Sorensen. What a wonderful hero the reader will find in Christmas Service!
This book is a collection of heartwarming love stories at Christmas time. It was a really good read and I throughly enjoyed the stories. The second story I completely by passed because i could not get into it. All of the other stories were very well written. I also enjoyed that the authors tried to keep the message of Christmas in some of their stories. I highly recommend this book.
