Review - Where Treetops Glisten by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and Sarah Sundin

The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime

Siblings forging new paths and finding love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas
Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America’s involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.

In Cara Putman’s White Christmas, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and a part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop. Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements—until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.

Abigail’s brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theater in Sarah Sundin’s I’ll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded. But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete’s friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he’s no longer the bully she once knew?

In Tricia Goyer’s Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, “Merry” to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that’s precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.

My Review:

Each of these stories are wonderfully written, and take you back to a Historical time and place.  Even though each story is considered to be a novella, they can be read as "stand-alone" books.
The stories were very interesting, and while Christmas was the theme of each story,  it wasnt overwhelming, making it a wonderful book to read anytime of the year.
My favorite story was White Christmas where Abigail is going to school and also working part-time in a wonderful candy store.  I like the images of the "old-fashioned" candy, it sounds delicious! 

Sit back, grab your favorite beverage, and step back to a time and place that is filled with faith and love.  With wonderful characters and vivid backgrounds in each story, you will find yourself turning the pages to find out what happens next.

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Historical romance books!
