This is the perfect Christmas or winter collection of short love stories! An anothology is a surefire hit for everyone with several different stories from well-known and new Christian authors. It’s a great way to get a taste of an unknown author’s writings before you search out more of their works.
This collection warmed my heart with each of their love stories set around Christmas’.
“A Victorian Christmas Cottage will take you there…to the Lake District of England, where a charming young widow reluctantly discovers a most unlikely source of love and protection…to fashionable San Francisco, where a society beauty’s bravery following the loss of her family fortune captivates her ruggedly handsome new neighbor…to a Georgia plantation, where forgiveness conquers a legacy of betrayal and heals the heartache of a lost love…to rural Minnesota, where a determined suitor risks everything to help a vulnerable young woman overcome her wounded past.”
I enjoyed each of these stories and it is hard to pick a favourite because they are each so different, but I think I might choose Catherine Palmer’s Under His Wings. I have a particular fondness for English nannies ever since studying the Bronte’s works of fiction in university, particularly Jane Eyre. This story is the typical young English woman comes to care for motherless child and ends of falling in love with the lonely, broken hearted father. Although it is typical in storyline, it is lovely and romantic and is a delightful read for the romantic at heart.
Each of the other stories, each have their charm and I am sure you will not find any wanting. Here are the titles of the other short stories and the authors:
“Christmas Past” – Debra White Smith
“A Christmas Hope” – Jeri Odell
“The Beauty of the Season” – Peggy Stoks
A great stocking stuffer or a pick-me-up for a nice weekend winter read!
