Christmas Roses by Amanda Cabot: A Review

This Christmas novella by Amanda Cabot is a touching story of a woman’s search for true love.  Celia, a widow with one small child, struggles to provide for herself a small family.  Though she doesn’t lack suitors, Celia has no intention of settling for anything less than real love.

Ms. Cabot has written a heartwarming tale that, at just over 170 pages, is a perfect break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I enjoyed getting to know Celia and Mark and if you’re a fan of inspirational historical romance then this is a treat you won’t want to miss. Even better, with its Currier and Ives snapshot set on a cheery red cover this hardcover book makes an excellent stocking stuffer for the reader’s on your Christmas list.  I enjoyed the story and I know you will too!

The Christmas Pony by Melody Carlson: A Review

Melody Carlson weaves a sweet tale of a young girl’s dream for a special Christmas present. A present that is completely out of reach for a family struggling to make ends meet in the middle of the American depression. Told from the perspective of eight year old Lucy, you quickly get a glimpse into the lives and dreams of the people around her.  It’s the kind of story Laura Ingalls Wilder might have told. A great read for everyone from young teens to their grandmothers.  So grab yourself a hot chocolate and snuggle up in front of the fireplace with this heartwarming tale—it’s the perfect way to usher in the first snow fall.
