Delightful Christmas stories..a keeper on my shelf. I should mention that this is a reprint from 1997, the stories are just as good as they were then but the book is unchanged other than an updated cover. Nice variety, good reads.
Featuring some of the genre's most noted historical writers, this quartet of holiday novellas provides readers with delightful samplings of holiday cheer from the 16th-century Scottish Highlands, Regency England, and 19th-century America. For example, an old enemy honors a pledge, with romantic results, in Susan King's The Snow Rose; and a casual prayer at the casket of a stranger provides an impoverished governess with a fortune in Mary Jo Putney's The Best Husband Money Can Buy. Varying widely in style and tone, these well-crafted stories range from light and humorous to poignant and tender.
