Where Treetops Glisten
Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman & Sarah Sundin
Christmas, the nostalgia of the 1940′s, love and three of the biggest names in Christian fiction….what more could you ask for? Where Treetops Glisten has all that and more. This complication follows the stories of the Turner family of Lafayette, Indiana. Each short story follows a different Turner sibling.
- Cara Putman’s White Christmas tells the story of Abigail Turner, a college student and part time employee of a candy shop. Having lost a love in the war already, Abigail wants nothing to do with men, especially soldiers. All that changes after a chance encounter with a handsome young man.
- Sarah Sundin’s I’ll be Home for Christmas tells the story of Abigail’s fight pilot brother, Pete. While at home for some R&R, Pete meets a little girl looking for a father. When Pete meets the little girl’s mother, they both realize that they know each other from high school and the memories aren’t good. Pete sets out to prove that he is no longer who he once was, but wonders if that’s enough.
- Tricia Goyer’s Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas follows Meredith (Merry) Turner’s story. Having been betrayed by her beau, she signs up to be a combat nurse hoping that she can escape her heartache. Never in a million years did she think that her past would should up again halfway around the world.
I absolutely loved reading this book! I think it may have something to do with the fact that I have the strange fascination with the 40′s, I often think I may have been born in the wrong decade. Of course, a lot of that has to do with the music of the time and those really awesome looking microphones they used. Haha!
I’ve read other books by all three of these authors and have enjoyed reading them all, so putting them all together in one book was sure to get rave reviews from me. They each tell a beautiful story in their own style, but the stories intertwine seamlessly. If it wasn’t obviously broken up into separate stories you’d never know that there were multiple authors. This is a great book for fans of historical Christian fiction, especially those looking to get into the Christmas spirit.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
