Wow! What a delightful read!
Carlson is a tricky author for me; I've enjoyed her work, but I've also run across several real duds. I'm glad to say that this book is the best yet that I have read...I knew when I read the synopsis and a review that it sounded like exactly my sort of story, and it w...

I grabbed up a chance to read this as soon as I read the synopsis. I love any story set during World War 2, and this one was really sweet! I really sympathized with Amelia and James story, and it's the perfect Christmas story!
I really enjoyed seeing Helene's perspective throughout the story. At f...

The one element in this story that I would have preferred to be dealt with a little better was...

I still haven't quite figured out how the title fits into the story, but that's okay. I don't usually pay much attention to titles anyway.
I enjoyed this story of a young mom struggling to do what is best for her baby even if it meant heartbreak for her. I never connected really well with any of t...

This book was short and sweet. I gravitated towards it for several reasons: it was a romance, Christian, took place during WWII and it was a Christmas story. It was a perfect read for a cool, rainy night.
Amelia is devastated when she finds out that her fiancee and father of her baby has been shot...
