about the book
The Christmas Heirloom by Karen Witemeyer, Kristi Ann Hunter, Sarah Loudin Thomas, Becky Wade
Four Holiday Novellas of Love Through the Generations
In Kristi Ann Hunter’s “Legacy of Love,” Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job . . . and introduce her to the woman’s grandson, a man far above her station.
In Karen Witemeyer’s “Gift of the Heart,” widow Ruth Albright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from the local banker. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love.
In Sarah Loudin Thomas’s “A Shot at Love,” Fleeta Brady’s rough-and-tumble childhood means she prefers hunting to more feminine activities. She never expected her family’s brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance.
In Becky Wade’s “Because of You,” Maddie Winslow has spent years in love with a man whose heart was already spoken for. When a church Christmas project brings them together and she stumbles upon an old family brooch, might it finally be her turn for love?
One timeless heirloom binds generations of daughters, mothers, and grandmothers as they overcome different obstacles and hardships to find enduring love in this beautifully crafted multi-author mini-saga.
This collection delights with creative variety in eras, locations, backgrounds, personalities, romance tropes, and more yet each story is equally moving, engaging, and entertaining. The heirloom was skillfully and seamlessly woven into each heroine’s life story as the tale of the family tradition was retold over the years. Words simply can’t express the range and depth of emotions these stories inspired in me.
I am completely in love with this book! Each story filled my heart with reader satisfaction, made me laugh and cry and engage in multiple book hugs. I highly recommend this book, it has earned a place on my all-time favorites shelf, and I look forward to rereading it year after year! Bless your mother, daughter, sister, cousin, or friend with this book then enjoy it together!
