A Log Cabin Christmas: 9 Historical Romances during American Pioneer Christmases (Paperback)
Experience Christmas through the eyes of adventuresome settlers who relied on log cabins built from trees on their own land to see them through the cruel forces of winter. Discover how rough-hewed shelters become a home in which faith, hope, and love can flourish. Marvel in the blessings of Christmas celebrations without the trappings of modern commercialism where the true meaning of the day shines through. And treasure this exclusive collection of nine Christmas romances penned by some of Christian fiction's best-selling authors.
The authors do a good job of showing the complex relationships between men and women. There are misunderstandings, fearing to accept or declare love, trying to deal with the children in the family, and then living in a one or two bedroom log cabin is enough to get on anyone nerves. There are different nationalities, odd family units, dangers from animals and Indians, and more. The authors are very factual about living back in the 1800’s. It wasn’t easy, but a well-built cabin and someone to love makes it a lot better.
This book would make a nice Christmas gift. It’s a book that would be fun to read each Christmas season, just pack it away with your Christmas ornaments. The stories are short enough they would work for reading aloud, too. I really enjoyed reading it.
Although they are all set in the pioneer days, each of these stories is truly timeless. Love, faith and redemption are consistent themes throughout the collection, with each set of characters struggling to find their way through physical and emotional trials. Faith and trust in God is the overriding theme, connecting the stories in the collection as strongly as the holiday setting itself. A wonderful introduction to the work of nine talented authors, A Log Cabin Christmas is a collection you will return to time after time.
