Overview

The Gift of Twins by Gabrielle Meyer

Unexpected Holiday Blessings

Finding twin five-year-old boys on his doorstep isn’t the first surprise Reverend Benjamin Lahaye has faced lately. Emery Wilkes, the new schoolteacher the town has hired, turns out to be a very pretty woman—not the man they’d been expecting. And though the twins and Emmy are only boarding with Ben until Christmas, the arrangement feels all too natural.

Emmy has moved to Minnesota to put loss behind her. Marriage would mean forsaking her position and her purpose, and Ben is an honorable man who understands her refusal to wed. But as he gets closer to tracking down the little boys’ father, Emmy realizes just how much she wants their sweet temporary family to become permanent.

A Gift of Twins is another story in Gabrielle Meyer's Little Falls Legacy series. I really enjoyed this Christmas story. It is the story of a teacher that comes to Minnesota. When the town sends for this teacher, they think a man is coming. They wanted a man because every female teacher has gotten married and has then left her teaching position. The town has had to continue to look for teacher after teacher. This teacher convinces the school board to give her a chance because she has no plans to ever get married. A Gift of Twins is well put together and a great story. Throughout the whole story, you see how different characters have to make difficult decisions. We all face hard decisions in our lives and we can relate to the situations in the story. Ultimately, we see that even when we don't think we can move forward, we should still keep going and persevere. The friends of the main characters encourage each other and strive to help them succeed and follow their hearts. In the end, you will see just what "unexpected holiday blessings" await! (On a side note, the book accurately portrays what a Minnesota winter truly can look like!)

Yes! Ben finally get's his story!! Readers of the first two books in the Little Falls Legacy series remember Rev. Ben LaHaye as the pastor who never quite wins the heroine's heart - until now. This story is one of the sweetest stories Gabrielle has written. In addition to falling in love with the new school teacher, Emmy, Ben has twin boys abandoned on his doorstep. Ben must make decisions about their future as he deals with the lasting effects of his own abandonment as a child. I really enjoyed how their story lines wove together. A great read!

Wow! I hate for this series to end. I found it very difficult to put down. Loved it so much. Fantastic writing and an awesome plot plus wonderful inspirational not too mention fabulous characters who seemed so real all make this a perfect Christmas read. Who couldn't love the two precious boys that add even more to the story.

Love love and love!! Sometimes life doesn't even come close to how we imagined it would turn out, but then again sometimes it turns out even better than we ever dreamed possible!

I don’t even know where to start my review because my emotions are a jagged mess after reading this! Gabrielle knows how to bring out all the feels. First of all, if you have been following along with her Little Falls Legacy series and you are like me, you’ve only been waiting forever for Ben’s tale. His turn at love had passed him by in the previous two stories and my heart hurt for all he endured watching it happen. I fell in love with his character from the start and knew there was more to the man than meet the eye. Here we get the whole package deal and learn about his past that makes him who he is. Gabrielle did an excellent job in fleshing him out and making him so real in my mind. He’s everything she made him out to be and so much more; a gentle giant of a man, peaceable, spiritually wise and loving, a true friend, and cares about the needs of other; in other words, what makes him the perfect Reverend! We also learn the hurt that’s buried inside and why he clings so close to God. It’s beautiful and heart wrenching at the same time! I won’t give it away, but it explains a lot about him. Secondly, I knew it would take an extraordinary woman for his perfect match. Someone who is just as loving and caring as him with a heart of gold, yet has some hidden hurt to overcome. Emmy fits the bill even better than I imagined and I loved her from the first time she set foot on the pages! Of course it would be unrealistic for her to not endure some kind of hardship and that comes in the form of simply being a woman. You see, the school board only wanted to hire a man to teach so they wouldn’t have to keep looking for one after the last two female teachers married! That causes a bit of strife between her and the superintendent, and I loved how she steeled her backbone from the get-go and told him in no uncertain terms she would not marry and she intended to stay. Her spunk is what endured me to her even more! Then comes the twin boys, oh my! I don’t know what’s better than knowing the author modeled them after her own boys. Loved them both and I know if I ever met them in person, they would be just as precious in person. And both so different from each other, their own personalities added so much to the story! This one is emotionally packed because I was a blubbering mess by the end of the book, it was so sweet and heartwarming. Even though there were times when I wanted to tell stubborn Emmy to just open her heart to love again, and Ben to not give up on her. Oh these two got my gander up sometimes, but in a good way! It just made their happily-ever-after sweeter and more endearing. This is the kind of story that touches you in so many ways and I didn’t want it to come to an end. I’m sad to leave Little Falls and know that there won’t be any more to come. Gabrielle penned a fictional world I could live in and characters that dug deep in my heart. I’d recommend reading all of the books in this series to get the full effect, though they can easily stand alone. *I received a complimentary copy from the author and was under no obligation to write a favorable review. *
