Book Review: Where Treetops Glisten

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime

Siblings forging new paths and finding love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas

Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America's involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Laf ayette, Indiana.

In Cara Putman's White Christmas, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and a part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop. Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements---until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.

Abigail's brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theater in Sarah Sundin's I'll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded. But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete's friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he's no longer the bully she once knew?

In Tricia Goyer's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, "Merry" to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that's precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.

The Turner family believes in God's providence during such a tumultuous time. Can they absorb the miracle of Christ's birth and His plan for a future?

My Opinion

I always love holiday books around this time when the weather gets cold, the days are shorter and all I want to do is snuggle down in the blankets with a good book! 

I definitely loved snuggling and reading Where Treetops Glisten by some of my favorite authors all in one book! These three authors are definitely in my top 10 of favorite historical fiction authors so I love that they collaborated! 

This book was a great historical Christmas book and I loved the setting, the romance, the characters, the story line and the history! It had me eager to read each little novella to meet each character and then finish the book in a hurry to see how they all worked out together as a family!

If you are looking for a excellent historical holiday read, definitely get Where Treetops Glisten!
