I really enjoyed these quick stories, and for some I have read the back stories, but there is a lot of information given, and you won't be lost.
From a snow storm and an impending birth of a new baby, and we get to see the true spirit of Christmas come alive and shared!
The second story shows the love of innocent little ones, and overcoming tremendous grief. This one will warm your heart, and in the end I wanted to continue on in their lives!
The third story features a mail order groom, and does touch on abuse. There is a side story of a delightful Amish man who wants a woman a bit older, and you get to enjoy his courting techniques.
These reads do feature children, and they pull you into each of the books!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
