This is a two story book. In the first, fans of the Malory family will enjoy spending a memorable Christmas with the family, and discovering the surprising long-ago love affair between the first Malory and a wild gypsy. Anthony's story is revealed, also.

In Home for the Holidays, two rival hearts are united by a Christmas miracle that would do Charles Dickens proud.

A good, quick read for fans of Johanna Lindsey.

Two stories in one book about the Malorys, part of a series about a family in the 1800's. These are heart warmers about a Xmas get together reunion, but with twists about family secrets!

Both stories in The Holdiday Present were captivating. Johanna Lindsey is an amazing author and I will continue to read any story she writes. The Holiday Present contained two seperate books, yet another book in the Malory series that explains their history and how a person's social station never mattered to them when it came to love. The second book, showed how love could break through any emotional or mental barrier. Another great story from Johanna Lindsey. Any one who appreciates Johanna Lindsey's stories, must read this book!

This book is a very good book for Holiday reading. There are 2 Christmas stories; making for 2 books for the price of one.
The "Present" is very intriguing. The noble family is gathered for Christmas and a mysterious present appears. Also one family member discovers an unmarked gravestone and the theories begin to form.

The second story includes an eviction of property at Christmas because of a long held grudge. The turn of events happens when the evictor takes the young woman and her sickly brother to live with him. Very good romance mystery.
