Christmas Yet to Come- Lynda TrentAngelica and Matthew had been engaged. They were to have a double wedding with her sister. They fought and broke up. Shortly after Angelica married. He was a drunkard, gambling womanizer who died after two years of marriage. She now struggles to get by after being left penniless. Her sister invites Matthew to come for the holidays. It has been five years since they seen one another. Between misunderstandings, out of work actors in the stable, fighting boarders and much more. This was an excellent and heart warming story. 1/28/20111/28/2011 A Season of Joy - Caryn CameronThe Americans VS British. Beth McGowen was trying to saver her farm for her son Will. The Americans had come and asked for what she could spare, she gave willingly. The British came and just took. LT. Col. Jerrod Ross had been with the first group and promised to return. Only his return came with taking more from the people in the area. He stayed at her home with her men and she was confused between believing it was for her protection or only for the good of serving General Washington. This story opened my eyes to things I had learned before: Valley Forge was cold and bitter and the men suffered greatly. I never thought about the troops coming and taking what they needed, etc.Fortune's Gift - DeLoras ScottApril Simpson was once a fun loving girl full of mischief. Now her brother seen a debutante. After their father struck it rich he had seen his mom snub old friends and forget that she use to be poor, now after schooling and being in Europe he had lost his sister in the same way.After a poker bet, if April lost she would marry by Christmas and if Carlton lost he would give her his stallion and new mare. Carlton upped the ante by saying she had to play against Yancy Medford.The only way April found to play poker against Yancy was to dress like a man and go into her brothers mens club. She forgot that she use to dress like a boy in her younger days.Through this story see Yancy seeing the girl April once was and after losing a bet of his own to Carlton, he had to court her and pretend to want to marry her, but he was finding he truly liked the spirit he found in her.I enjoyed all three stories.
Christmas Yet to Come by Lynda Trent was pretty good. It was a short and sweet story. I liked it and would read it again. This was more of a passing the time kind of book. I would read it again, but I wouldn't search it out. A Season of Joy by Caryn Cameron was pretty good too. I liked the fact that the main character had doubts, it showed that we usually do. I also liked she was big enough to admit it and correct/apologize about it too. I liked the hope that was present and reborn. This was a touching and showed the war from both sides and why what and how it happened the way it did. I would read this again but more for passing the time. Fortune's Gift by DeLoras Scott was really good. I liked the bantering and betting and brother/sister rivalry. I liked the betting and the 'what's going to happen next' scenes. I would definitely read this book again. Out of all the books in this anthology, this one was my favorite. Overall, I would read this anthology again, but more for passing the time and not searching it out. Enjoy
All the stories were a solid three, worth reading but not worth keeping.
