Where tree tops glisten by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and Sarah Sundin

The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime siblings forging new paths, finding love in three stories, and filled with the wonder of Christmas

Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America’s involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.

White Christmas by Cara Putman is the first one in this collection. Abigail and Jackson’s story starts out with a bit of mystery involving Jackson and it’s really the line that moves this story forward. Abigail's story is more along the emotional side as she deals with wanting to protect her heart.

I'll Be Home for Christmas by Sarah Sundin is the second one. Precocious children have a way of bringing humor into a story.  Sundin's novella included such a wonderful message, about how we all have a God-sized hole in our hearts and only He can fill it. The struggles that Pete and Grace have and the ways they look to find peace, unfold with plenty of Christmas romance.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Tricia Goyer is the third story. Merry Turner is working as a combat nurse overseas in the Netherlands to help the war effort. She's faced with a betrayal and God plans to redeem her broken heart. Merry must trust in the Lord to heal her and plan for her future. This story has a strong focus on the gifts and blessings that God places in our lives and how much better off we are when we choose to accept those gifts.

Where Treetops Glisten is a charming collection of three heartwarming Christmas romances, of one family told through the backdrop of World War II and the relationships that connect them.
Great way to get into the Spirit during the holidays. I cannot wait to try the cookie recipes; what a wonderful bonus!

I received copy of e-Book from Blogging for Books Program for my review.
