Okay, this is an annual purchase for me. Prior years have included "A Log Cabin Christmas" and "A Prairie Christmas Collection". This year's collection is "A Pioneer Christmas". I love going back to a simpler time and spending the holidays with characters as they try to keep God's Word and find the true joy of Christmas. These are sweet romances, but that doesn't mean that the path to true love is smooth for those involved. History comes alive in these stories. My favorite was "The Calling" by Kathleen Fuller. Elijah's questions about his path are universal and timeless. All the stories are touching and uplifting. A great holiday read or, if you just need a little of the magic of Christmas.
"A Pioneer Christmas Collection" is an anthology by some of today's top Christian writers. Whether it's the complexity of the Revolutionary War or the strangeness of a new world, Christ and Christmas take center stage for these couples and their love.
Journey along with American settlers who learn that despite where the trail takes them or how primitive their lodgings may be Christmas is all about the heart. Determined to honor Christ’s birth, these pioneers find a way to make Christmas happen in places like a cave, a tipi, and a dugout. Modern readers will enjoy a peek into life before commercialism took over the sacred day, distracting us from the true blessings of faith, hope, and love. Enjoy nine original novellas of Christmas romance as penned from many of today’s leading Christian authors, including Lauraine Snelling, Kathleen Fuller, and Vickie McDonough.
