About Where Treetops Glisten

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

 
Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of 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.

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.

The Turner family believes in God’s providence during such a tumultuous time. Can they absorb the miracle of Christ’s birth and His plan for a future?

by Andrea Renee Cox   The last book I read in 2014 turned out to be one of my favorites for the year. Where Treetops Glisten is a collaboration novel that features the Turner family. The prologue introduces you to the family from the grandmother's point of view, which I found to be sweet and a wonderful way to begin the book.   The storyline moves slightly forward at the beginning of the first official story, White Christmas...

I know the Christmas season is long over, but you don't need to be in the midst of celebrating to enjoy this book! Three talented authors (Cara Putman, Sarah Sundin, and Tricia Goyer) join forces in this collection of Christmas novellas set in the WWII era. I'd never read a collection like this before so I didn't know what to expect, but I truly enjoyed these heartfelt stories. Cara Putman's "White Christmas" is quiet yet genuine. With the...

I was not happy with this particular book by Tricia Goyer. While the 3-in-1 book is often a great idea, Tricia Goyer and the other authors focused heavily on the romance aspect, especially I'll Be Home for Christmas by Sarah Sundin.

Still it was great to see that each romance story revealed...

This is a Christmas story - three such stories in fact for it is a collection of novellas which follow the same family through World War II.  We begin with a sister who has lost her fiancé at Pearl Harbor and she must try to heal her broken heart while the war rages around the world. "White Christmas" gives us a glimpse into the lives of those 1940's era Americans who did not directly participate in war activities and yet the war would...
