Christmas is coming and now is the perfect time to read a collection of stories to get readers into the spirit of the season.
This brand new collection of short stories from Barbour Publishing follows a nativity set throughout four generations and through four significant times in history. The talented authors sew the threads together tightly and seamlessly providing the reader with a delightful reading experience.
I enjoyed each story and appreciated the work and research that went in to creating stories set from the end of the 19th century through to present day.
A wonderful book to get readers ready for Christmas.

This is the 11th book of the Daughters of the Mayflower Series, many of which I’ve already read and for the most part enjoyed.
The opening of this particular novel pulls the reader into the world of espionage, the beginnings of the Secret Service. Our heroine has one goal, to see justice served to the man who killed her father, and she will do anything to accomplish that goal. Including relocating halfway across the country to find the man’s hidden family and pose as a school teacher, only with a secret mission to accomplish.
There’s lots of humour and blunders as the main characters try to keep their reasons for moving to the sleepy town in Nebraska. The blizzard of 1888 catches the town unaware and provides an excellent element to the storyline to further frustrate their efforts.
The author keeps the reader guessing as to which single mom and son belong to the infamous criminal, and who, if anyone, is the man himself they are trying to prevent from coming to town.
Great descriptions, some comedy of errors, make this a fun-light read.
