Four very well-written stories about the people of small-town Hope Washington - their dreams to see their town flourish, and their dreams for the flourishing of their own lives. The town of Hope WA was dying from lack of logging work, and the town revived itself by recreating an old-fashioned Christmas - people from all over WA came and found hope and healing. Great Christmas reading.

While this was a good book, I think that two of the stories in it (which all the stories are put in the same setting, time, and scenario with characters popping in all of them which I liked that they did) were more realistic, and the other two stories seemed more unrealistic by making relationships skip the whole dating/courting experience and right into engagement and very short ones of that. One of the stoies that jumped to engagment at least showed that they knew each other for a longggg time. but those other two . . a month to a few short months and bam then engaged? The overall spiritual perspective in these were great. it showed how faith and learning to forgive people when thinking of God is helpful. Then there are the situations that can get all jumbled in our heads with a lack of communication with each other can cause issues. The Christmas aspect was very much in a couple of the stories but seemed to be less of a big deal in the last story completely. All of them had their sweetnesses about them but I liked the first story best. The book as a whole was a nice read and brought a couple watered eyes at points of reading.
