Will Christmas be a season of miracles in their lives?
I loved the unique premise behind this book - One house, four different families, and four different situations, but all with the theme of love, faith and family, and, of course, the holiday spirit. It was fascinating to follow along the history of the families - from the 1820s to the present - to read of the different outlooks on life, the traditions and how they changed, and how the people themselves approached Christmas.
This is also a faith-based story as well as a story of romance, and it all ties together beautifully in four separate but cohesive short stories.
I highly recommend this book for holiday reading, and for those who love historical romantic fiction.
