One of the books that Im currently reading is called "Mistletoe Courtship". This includes
2 "shorter" stories - One is called "Christmas Bells for Dry Creek" by Janet Tronstad and the
second story is called "The Christmas Secret".
UPDATE: I finished this book, and really enjoyed this Story!
Christmas Bells for Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad The holiday season brings a surprise for Virginia. Colter Wells, is back in Dry Creek—with a newly discovered daughter. I like the way the characters work together to make a new family, and give guidance to his daughter.
Janet Tronstad won a award for this Novella - see more at her blog.. Dry Creek Days
I'm so excited. Every year the American Christian Fiction Writers hold a contest for Book-of-the-Year in various categories. My 'Christmas Bells for Dry Creek' (in Mistletoe Courtship) just won in the historical novella group. Over 600 people (writers, editors, agents) were at a dinner Sunday night in their evening wear when the awards were announced.
