Where Treetops Glisten by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman and Sarah Sundin

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Where Treetops Glisten by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman and Sarah Sundin
ISBN: 9781601426488
Trade Paperback

Synopsis: The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime
Siblings forging new paths and finding love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas
Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America’s involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.
In Cara Putman’s White Christmas, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and a part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop. Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements—until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.
Abigail’s brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theater 
In Sarah Sundin’s I’ll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded. But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete’s friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he’s no longer the bully she once knew?
In Tricia Goyer’s Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, “Merry” to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that’s precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.
The Turner family believes in God’s providence during such a tumultuous time. Can they absorb the miracle of Christ’s birth and His plan for a future
My review: I have to say that I enjoy reading Christmas stories as it just puts you in the mood for the season. Each of these stories on their own were very good but put them all together and you have a great hit. I think it is cute how each of the story has a Christmas song as their title. It was also nice how the stories were all told about one family it kind of made them all come together for me. The character development by each of these authors was done very well. I would love to "meet" this family. This will be one Christmas book I will share with family and friends.
