My review:
This collection of four novellas in one nice and relaxing book will bring you back in time to a place and time that is long forgotten. A place where faith in God is real and truly genuine,and life wasn’t taken for granted.
I wasn’t sure how this book would turn out because I have read Catherines works in the past and wasn’t happy with what I read. But she surprised me with this book and it is truly a great and inspiring read!! Not only was I impressed with this book, but I also got the added bonus of some new recipes that Catherine Palmer included!

Set in both America and England, these stories capture both Bible verses and the heart of Christmas and pull you in with the characters.If you asked me which of the four of these stories in the collection was my favorite, I would have to tell you all  4 of them, because I enjoyed them all so much, with the mix of history, romance and faith, that I couldn’t choose just one as a favorite.

I will give this book both two thumbs up and 4 stars for amazing work! It also comes with high recommendation from me!
