Christmas have been way too commercialized in this era. It’s all about presents and toys that most of us tend to forget what the real Christmas is all about. The book contain four mini novellas that tells the story of four different women.
The first novella is “A Choice to Forgive” by Beth Wiseman. It tells the story of Lydia, who is offered a chance with her first love again after many years. But has too much time passed and can she ever forgive him for ever leaving her?
The second novella is “A Miracle for Miriam” by Kathleen Fuller. Miriam was an awkward child and was teased and had her feelings hurt as a young girl, there are resentment in her. Can she learn to to forgive and forget?
The third novella by Barbara Cameron entitled “One Child.” Sarah and David are childless and the pain that results from this is so strong. So, why on this snowy Christmas night is a couple brought to their door needing a place to stay and also ready to birth their first child?
The fourth novella in the book is “Christmas Cradles” written by Kelly Long, and it tells the story of Anna who travels a couple of hours to fill in for the local midwife so she can spend time with the family. Soon after falling asleep Anna is woken to travel to a home to help with the delivery of a baby. This is only the beginning of births for this late evening and early morning on Second Christmas for Anna and her faithful driver Asa.
I like this book very much. Very delightful and relaxingly read though I find that the stories moved in too fast and does not have a leisurely pace to it. I rate this book 4 stars out of 5, and I think this book makes a perfect Christmas present for those who loves to read.
