This was such a treat to read. I liked all four novellas but I have to say my favorite by far was Guiding Star by Katie Ganshert. The stories all link together and you just want to keep on reading, they are put together so well.
You are sure to love the stories of family and love in each of these novella's.
 The Clark's did not disappoint either they really can write, they make a great writing team.
I have to say that Ganshert should write an Amish fiction novel next she really is talented.
This is a must read Christmas book it will get you in the mood for the holidays.
This is a 5 star book. I highly recommend this one. It would sure make a great gift to go under someone's tree.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
