CHRISTMAS CALLING by Colleen L. Reece and Birdie L. Etchison
Christmas Calling is two Christmas Novellas
In 'Christmas Challenge' by Colleen L. Reece, Valerie Shannon O'Shea answers a newspaper ad that challenges a woman to live as a pioneer woman would have in the late 1880s. She travels to Montana to live out the challenge in a one room schoolhouse for one year. But that's also where she grew up and where her father was convicted of a crime he didn't commit and died in prison. It was also where she left her first love, Locke Stuart, behind. It was his father who was the judge that sent her father to prison. Will she live out her challenge, clear her father's name and perhaps run into Locke and remember that through it all the Lord is in control?
In 'Christmas Snow' by Birdie L. Etchison, Janie Montgomery is anxious to spend Christmas with her aunt in Spokane. On the way she finds herself in a ditch due to the snow. Greg Kincade is an EMT who comes to Janie's rescue and pulls her out of the ditch. He also gives her his card. That card comes in handy when she found herself in a ditch for a second time. Greg rescues her again and takes her to her aunt's house. Together they help Janie's aunt and Greg's brother decorate there houses. They also decorate the room of a special lady in Greg's life. Was it by chance the snow storm hit and Janie ended up in the ditch? Was it chance that Greg happened to come by at the right time? Or was the Lord orchestrating something as the beautiful as the freshly fallen snow?
Both of these stories are easy-to-read, heartwarming tales that just make you feel good. The characters in each story were fun to get to know and of course they centered around Christmas. Though they are short, the endings leave you completely satisfied. If you enjoy reading Christmas themed stories and are looking for a short Christmas book fix, you might just hear 'Christmas Calling' you!
