Happy Christmas Eve!!!!!!

Christmas tree with presents and fireplace with stockings

The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.

 Description of Story

 Christmas in Blue

In the wake of a personal loss deeper than anyone realizes, Angela plans to bypass as much of the season as possible and get through her duties as the church organist by going on autopilot. Instead, she finds herself in charge of the town’s celebration. After a mysterious young man arrives, townspeople suspect he is the reason that one set of plans after another disintegrate until little is left of their traditions. Yet Angela warms to Gabe because she suspects they share a secret—his real reason for coming to town. Even when all they have to work with is a garish supply of blue Christmas decorations, Gabe helps Angela discover the hidden beauty of hope.

Christmas in Gold

After eighty years, change is nothing new for Astrid. By the time she was twenty, she survived the destructive Nazi regime, caring for her family under brutal circumstances, moving to America, and losing her husband. At forty she was widowed again and left to build a new life with her children. Now, when she faces a move into an assisted living community and meets a young woman on the brink of despair, she resolves to stir up hope through tragedy one more time.

My Review

I have never read a book by Olivia Newport.  I really expected these stories to be sentimental since it is a Christmas book, but I just couldn’t get into these books.

I did like the first book, “Christmas in Gold” the best.  I loved how Astrid would tell her story about the Nazi and what she had to endure.  I thought it was the best one so I would give this one a very good mark.

The second book, was just not what I expected.  Now, I just didn’t care for the book at all.  I’m sorry, just couldn’t get into it.  I won’t say anything else so I would not ruin it for other people.

Thank you for giving me a chance to read and review this book.

I am not going to say anything else about this book or I will spoil it for you.  I would not suggest this book to my friends and family.
