Where Treetops Glisten

Where Treetops Glisten
Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, & Sarah Sundin
The Turner children are all grown up now. But their past is affecting how they deal with the future. Each story takes one of the three siblings and tells the story of how they overcame their problems to find God and love at Christmas time.

I’ve read books by two of these authors and really enjoyed them. So I knew this book would be good. I wasn’t disappointed. The authors wove their stories together so seamlessly that I couldn’t tell that three different people had written them. The romance was sweet, but not cheesy. The problems were real and relatable. The message of faith and salvation was woven throughout the story, but was subtle and not preachy. The details felt authentic and made me want to visit this small town. I think my only complaint would be that these books weren’t made into full length novels. The authors are great at their jobs and these stories could have been even more fleshed out and interesting with more time. While this is a tiny complaint, I also enjoyed the option to read for a short period of time and not miss anything because of the novella length. One of my favorite features was the questions for the authors in the back. It was neat to read the back story to how their writing came about. I would definitely recommend all three of these authors and have now found a new author to check out.

I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
