Readers are in for a treat with this collection of stories written by various authors about pioneers celebrating Christmas! Being a fan of the pioneer era and someone that loves the Christmas season I enjoyed all 9 novellas. My top 3 favorites were (not in any particular order)...

Shannon McNear's "DEFENDING TRUTH" is about a young woman whose father has left to fight in a war and she was left to care for her younger siblings. She's near the end of her rope and most definitely not in the Christmas spirit when a starving militia man suddenly enters her life. This was such a great story, it really lifts your spirits!

"A SILENT NIGHT" is the story of a mother and her 6 yr old child trying to survive. She turned down a "marriage of convenience" proposal and as winter comes she's not sure how they will make it. An enjoyable story of a little boy's prayer for a Christmas miracle.

Last but not least is "BUCKSKIN BRIDE". It's 1889, Mattie and her two sisters are waiting for their father to return before bad weather sets in. Little does she know the land they're living on is owned by a young Irishman. One of her sisters gets hurt and Mattie is starting to feel hopeless. A sweet story on how Christmas can change things!

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )
