Defending Truth Truth can’t believe it when she encounters a Tory on her mountain! Her father is still off defending the area from those silly Torris and this man, Will, is here starving. Well, God put him in her path for a reason. Hopefully, he’ll leave before her father returns – or he eats her out of house and home! Review: So cute! I enjoyed this novella but it was so full that it didn’t feel like a novella at all!! Author: Shannon McNear Grade: A Ages: 16+ Setting: 1781 North Carolina The Calling Should Ethan follow his heart or follow his calling. Ethan has been hiding from his legacy – his father and grandfather are preachers – because he’s just afraid. Well, except when he’s in Milly’s tavern. Until he gets his life straight he can’t be a husband – especially, if he’s pioneering for God. Review:I loved this! It was so sweet and fun. The bickering and relationships in this tavern were perfect! Author: Kathleen Fuller Grade: A+ Ages: 16+ Setting: 1820 Ohio A Silent Night Iain never came home and Lorna, totally unprepared to make it it alone with her daughter, Ashton, is left struggling to know God’s will. Especially, with the two men offering their help. Review: This was the sweetest novella I’ve read in a long time. Though definitely a novella, A Silent Night is a must have on your reading list. Author: Anna Urquhart Grade: A Ages: 16+ Setting: 1830 Michigan Territory A Pony Express Christmas Alone on a trail searching desperately for her missing brother, Ellie May comes upon an imminent hanging. Deciding upon looking at the group that her best chance was with the soon to be hanged, Michael, she purchases him from his pursuers and puts him right to work. But will Michael be able to rescue her from this disastrous mission she’s bent on and help her to find her brother? Review: A Pony Express Christmas sucked me right in. I couldn’t say what was my favorite part of this because it was amazing! It was fun, silly, action-packed, and interesting. There were facts and verses mixed in with the most delightful conversation!! Author: Margaret Brownley Grade: A+ Ages: 16+ Setting: 1862 Nebraska Territory A Christmas Castle Married by proxy, Annie arrives at her new home to find a grave and little girl – one she was completely unaware of but is now responsible for. Within twenty-four hours she’s offered marriage by two very different men. Can God show her the right path to follow? Review: I loved every word!Just couldn’t put this one down. Plus, it had some very wonderful nudges about how a husbands needs to be treated that were very timely! Author: Cynthia Hickey Grade: A+ Ages: 16+ Setting: 1867 Arizona Territory The Cowboy’s Angel What’s a cowboy to do? On the way to his boss’s northern territory Jeremiah comes upon a very sick man who dies moments after asking Jeremiah to check on his family. Jeremiah arrives to find an hours old baby, young boy, and new widow deep in the snow and without hope to make it through to spring. Jeremiah’s conscience won’t let him leave but he can’t stay either… Review: At first The Cowboy’s Angel seemed like another I’d read in this book but as I kept reading I realized how absolutely different and wonderful it really was. I really can use Belle’s thankfulness as an example! Author: Lauraine Snelling Grade: A Ages: 16+ Setting: 1875 Dakota Territory A Badlands Christmas Is he serious? When her father tells Noela and her sister Bea that they’re visiting Medora for Christmas they’re in shock. But when they arrive to find that this is their new home and they’ve moved from New York City life to a crumbling Soddy in the middle of nowhere. Can God be found in this vast wilderness? Review: WOW. I really loved this. The romance was downplayed to Noela fixing her relationships with her family and God. Author: Marcia Gruver Grade: A Ages: 16+ Setting: 1885 Dakota Territory Buckskin Bride What’s a girl to do? Father left Milly in charge of her two sisters several weeks ago and hasn’t returned.

Review: For me this just wasn’t a great close to the book. It didn’t have enough pull. Author: Michelle Ule Grade: DNF Ages: — Setting: 1897 Alaska Hott Review: This was a really long book and took me forever to read but I loved every second – I even purchased a physical copy to share!

9 Great stories by 9 great authors Nine short, wonderful, Christmas stories written by nine authors: Lauraine Snelling, Margaret Brownley, Kathleen Fuller, Marcia Gruver, Cynthia Hickey, Vickie McDonough, Shannon McNear, Michelle Ule and Anna Urquhart. I really enjoyed this book, these stories, and they are all quick reads. Of course there were some that touched my heart more than others as I'm sure any reader would feel that way, having different stories touch their heart. They take place in a variety of locations and even though they aren't long, they are great reads. I think there will be something special for all Christian Historical Fiction lovers in this book. I have read books by many of these authors and have found some new ones that I will be watching for. Thank you for putting this collection together.

A Pioneer Christmas is a beautiful collection of historical Christmas stories. I loved them all but Buckskin Bride by Vickie McDonough was my favorite of the nine. Most of these authors are new to me and will be looking for more full length stories by them in the future. I recommend this book to get you into the holiday spirit. 4 stars.
