"I just like to smile, smiling's my favorite" - Buddy, (Elf 2003)
Alongside the fun commercial aspect of this time of year, is the REAL reason Christmas should be celebrated. The birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The best Christmas present of all!
During Christmas, to keep myself in the festivities of it all, I love a good Christmas themed novel with a strong family and faith foundation. Christmas, 2014, I'm recommending Where Treetops Glisten: Three Stories of Heartwarming Courage and Christmas Romance During World War II. This is a wonderfully written historical romance set during the difficult time period this country faced during World War II. Please see below my review!
"Where Treetops Glisten: Three Stories of Heartwarming Courage and Christmas Romance During World War II is a book of 3 novellas, each beautifully written by a different author, Sarah Sundin, Cara Putman, and Tricia Goyer. They told the stories of the Turner family during the Christmas season during the early 1940s during World War II.
Each story was perfectly woven and well blended with one another. It was an all around heartfelt read, focusing on family, Christian faith, sorrow, and joy. All elements we face and can truly relate to during the Christmas season. If you enjoy a historic fiction book, alongside a deep yearning for the Christmas spirit, and a little romance, then this is the truly book for you.
Each novella played it's part in displaying the real trials families faced during this time and the relentless hope that one longed for and the timeless magic the Christmas season can bring. I loved that the book surrounded the Turner family and each novella highlighting this time period perfectly.
It was a pleasure to read!
