This anthology was an excellent way to start off one's reading selections during the Holiday Season. Four authors, Peterson, Reece, Lough and Laity penned inspirational love stories based in the late 1870s-1880s. Each protagonist seems doomed to finding their soul mate when divine intervention arises and romance blossoms and thrives. A welcomed change results from reading such Christian-based pieces. Each novella is heartwarming and echoes the wonderfulness of humankind when given a chance.

Not sure what possessed me to pick up a Christmas themed book in early September... but I did, and found that I'd apparently set it down after last winter's various bouts without power or internet... and it was half read already.

the last two stories are freshest in my mind, but I know it was the first I enjoyed most!

For Love of a Child was the best. There was a strong current of a weak woman who needed rescuing by a smarter man. And that God=country, city=sin.

An interesting, if highly formulaic, collection of short stories, dealing with love, Christianity, and Christmas. A very quick read.
