Where Treetops Glisten #book Review

Do you read holiday themed books during Christmas time?  I love too!  In fact I have a special little Christmas box my parents gave me about ten years ago with some books in it.  Now each year we bring it out when we decorate the trees and I re-read the books.  I know I'm going to be adding this book - Where Treetops Glisten to that treasure! 

Where Treetops Glisten is really three stories in one set in the time of World War II.  It features stories from three different authors: Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman and Sarah Sundin.  Each author writes one story about a character from the Turner family.  All the stories mesh and meld together making it a sweet combination. 


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.

My Thoughts:

I always love when a book lets you get to know characters.  This book travels us through the lives of one whole family over the course of a few years.  It flows so beautifully even though there are three different writers.  I felt like each character's tale was believable as part of the overall picture in the family.  It is a unique book and one I'm so happy to have read.  Each tale gives you just enough of the picture to pull you through the next story. 

You can purchase your copy of Where Treetops Glisten at your local retailer or online at stores like Amazon.
