This was a really nice collection of Christmas stories to read especially at Christmas but could be read anytime of the year. Stories were each less than 60 pages so they read quickly & had great messages in of them. I can not pick out just one as my favorite as they all had parts in them that made me enjoy each of them. A good choice to read if you are into historical Christian fiction or even if you just like historical fiction...

Good book of short stories by some fantastic authors. I like the combined short stories by multiple authors. It allows me to read a sample from each author, to determine if I want to read more of a specific author's work. I found all the stories to be historical, interesting and worthwhile. I hope you do too.

Beautiful Christmas stories each with a message. This is the best Christmas book that I have read. There are 8 short stories about 50 pages a piece. Each one is a great story.

Nine Historical Christmas Romances

Take Me Home by Tracey Bateman (Coon's Hollow, Iowa, 1887)
This story was included in a book that I read a couple of years ago (Christmas on the Prairie), but I enjoyed reading it again. As a new teacher in a strange town, Kathleen struggles to fulfill the expectations of her mother.

One Wintry Night by Pamela Griffin (Leaning Tree, Nebraska, 1871)
Good story about a young woman coming to terms with the realities of life and learning about the things that are really important to a person's happiness. Excellent characters and storyline.

Image of Love by Jo Ann Grote (Peace, Minnesota, 1869)
I didn't read this one, as I'd read it quite a few years ago in the collection, A Currier & Ives Christmas.

The Christmas Necklace by Maryn Langer (Chicago, Illinois, 1871)
The Christmas Necklace has a very unusual and mysterious storyline. It ends in a lovely allegory. I found it compelling.

A Christmas Gift of Love by Darlene Mindrup (Dakota Territory, 1869)
A Christmas Gift of Love is the touching story of love lost and love found. Very sweet romance of sacrificial love.

God Jul by Tracie Peterson (Lindsborg, Kansas, (1884)
God Jul, which is Swedish for Merry Christmas, includes several Swedish recipes. This story takes place during the time when the railroad was first coming through Kansas.

Circle of Blessings by Deborah Raney (Dakota Territory, 1871)
Circle of Blessing is a good Christmas story. The characters are appealing and the story is interesting.

Christmas Cake by Janet Spaeth (Nebraska)
Sweet story about giving Christmas gifts with very little resources, but much love.

Colder Than Ice by Jill Stengl (Coon's Hollow, Iowa, 1885)
This last novella by Jill Stengl is my favorite. I had read it once before, but thoroughly enjoyed it again. It is wonderful to see two characters surprised by love.

I recommend this collection to those who enjoy Christmas novellas.
