Review by Sarah
Overall Rating
Please bear with me as I read this back in December before my husband’s passing so while I can say I thoroughly enjoyed these four novellas my memory is a bit rusty with all that has gone on these past few weeks. I’m a huge fan of all four authors and so I can’t tell you which you novella I enjoyed the most because of liking all of their writing when they work solo. If I were to read this again I know that Katherine’s story in “When Christmas Comes Again” due to the fact that she is a widow, and while she was moving toward a new romance I’m not, but the story now resonates with me as a mom of children without a husband. These are romance in theme and so that will be the overarching plot in all four of the novellas – finding love, losing it and finding it again – thankfully all the romance is tame and there is no strong physical descriptions of the romance between couples – there may have been a kiss or two but nothing that made me uncomfortable.

Even though Christmas is over this book is a good one that would be fun to read anytime of the year – especially in the heat of summer when we look forward to some cooler weather! Of course there is nothing wrong with keeping the Christmas spirit alive all year round either – so just another excuse to pick up a great book by four very talented authors. This book also includes a reading group guide and several Old Order Amish recipes for your use and delight – I need to try some of the recipes although I’ll be substituting flax seed for the eggs. Overall, this was a delightful book and one that made a fast read and was so enjoyable that I would definitely recommend it to others.

**I was provided a copy of this book by one of the authors in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given. (Posted on 1/28/2015)
