    1. Where Treetops Glisten is a really sweet and well-integrated collection of stories about one family's experiences throughout WWII. The way the collection is structured is really clever, and the novellas definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. Now that November is here, I'm feeling ready for some more Christmas music, movies, and books!The collection begins on a gentle note. White Christmas is more of a quiet story about coming together to solve a mystery and find hope during the holidays. The [...]

    2. This book is a perfect companion for the Christmas season. Rich in historical detail, the three charming novellas are connected beautifully, with characters you can fall in love with right away, and story lines that will tug at your heart. I love reading collections like this during the busiest season of the year. It's low-commitment--meaning, if you think you'll only have time to finish one novella, you'll still get a satisfying read. But if you're like me, after reading the first one, you'll f [...]

    3. This is a lovely Christmas book with three heartwarming stories by three great WWII authors. One I will be reading again.

    5. I've really been enjoying WW2 era books this year. There is so much history there that can be used as a background and the authors who I have had the privilege to read, have used these settings to their advantage. I have to say that Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and Sarah Sundin combined their creativity and these backgrounds well and made a wonderful novella collection.I have to be honest and say that novellas can be hit and miss for me. My main pet peeve can be when there is no connecting factor [...]

    6. Yeah, I know exactly what you are thinking. I just read a Christmas based book in the middle of May. I am crazy and I know it. But, yeah, I just got into a Sarah Sundin kick and decided to read this! It is actually quite good! And, I am going to write a review, BUT I will not post it until the Christmas holidays this year. Yeah, I am being kind of mean, but it isn't even close to Christmas yet. But, I will say that I really enjoyed this book!!Since my siblings and I just put up our Christmas tre [...]

    7. In Where Treetops Glisten, the authors have written three Christmas novellas featuring one family, the Turners. In addition to the continuing family connection, the stories are further intertwined by their setting—Lafayette, Indiana—and the time period—World War II. Cara Putman, Sarah Sundin, and Tricia Goyer are each known for their skill in writing stories set during World War II, and nowhere do these skills shine brighter than in these novellas. I loved the fact that the stories followe [...]

    8. A great trio of stories that seamlessly flowed from one to the next. The authors did a great job of keeping all the facts straight as they each wrote about one of the siblings. Heartwarming stories with good lessons/thoughts woven in. Been wanting to get to this one for a couple Christmas' now, so glad I finally did.

    9. Great Christmas collection!Where Treetops Glisten is a novella collection set around Christmases during WWII. I’m not typically a big fan of novellas, simply because they always feel too short to me, but I really enjoyed these. They are closely linked, as the main characters in each are siblings. There are 3 in this collection, which allowed the authors to make them a little longer than the typical novella, without having a huge book as the result. White Christmas by Cara Putman I really enjoy [...]

    10. I love Christmas stories. They are full of hope, as these three historical novellas were. The stories are all set around Christmastime as the sounds, sights, and smells of Christmas are present, such as mistletoe, Christmas treats, gifts, snow, and when family come home to be together. I loved how small gifts, especially those that weren't physical gifts, played a large part of each story. I also loved these characters and how they each found and gave of themselves. It was a time of rationing, w [...]

    13. White Christmas by Cara Putman:Cara Putman's novel is the first one in this collection, and I was instantly caught up in the lives of Abigail and Jackson. While, WWII is pretty much in the background of this novel, it has a subtle impact on their lives. Jackson's story starts out with a bit of mystery and is really the line that moves this story forward. Abigail's story is more along the emotional side as she deals with wanting to protect her heart. While I enjoyed the story quite a bit, I didn' [...]

    14. When you see a book on the shelf written by this caliber of authors, you have to pick it up. The blend these three authors give to a story forms a seamless line up of three separate stories. Three characters, from the same family go their different ways in this Christmas story. Each one has their own unique story to tell, and because of this you will find yourself drawn in quickly. The World War Two setting adds to the charm, as there are not as many Christmas stories set in that time period, ev [...]

    15. Heidi ReadsThis collection of stories was a pleasure to read and will make a great Christmas gift! Each story is very different yet connected by familial ties and common themes of service and giving. The first by Cara Putman was the sweetest with Abigail overcoming her fears and reaching out to someone with burdens greater than her own. The second by Sarah Sundin was the most dynamic since the relationship between Pete and Grace is turbulent and undergoing a change from resentment to love. The l [...]

    16. Three tied together stories of the Turner family, Abigail, Pete, and Meredith, all set during World War II, by three different authors, and smoothly brought together.I love these stories, and found myself right back in the 1940’s with them. Whether it was in Lafayette, IN or in the Netherlands, I felt I was there, and completely absorbed in this read.There has been heartache in this family, but the love of God has made this early life the joy that they have found. There is mention of lost sibl [...]

The trio of Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and Sarah Sundin author this World War II romance in perfect harmony.Read my full review to include the recipes at the end of the book: christianshelfesteem.wordpress**I received this book free [...]

    18. I found it neat that each "story" was written by different authors. It gave an added feel of each sibling being unique and different. My favorite was the first story, but I liked the other two a whole lot too. The added touch of a short chapter at the beginning and end of the book with Grandma as the main character tied everything together in a lovely way. Even though there is a bit more "sensation" of kissing and touching than I like, it wasn't enough to turn me off.I know I'll be rereading thi [...]

    19. Oh, I really enjoyed this collection of WWII novellas so much. Rich in nostalgia, each story reminded me of the old Christmas movies where love and hope mingle timelessly. Truly, if you love Miracle on 34th Street (the original with Natalie Woods), White Christmas, and It's a Wonderful Life, you will LOVE this collection. Historical content adds the authenticity necessary to bring readers into an era where tinsel and mistletoe made the season bright in spite of the war threatening to diminish th [...]

    22. Where Treetops Glisten is three novellas in one. All of them are about different family members in the Turner family. The settings vary from Lafayette, Indiana on a Christmas Eve in 1941, from to the Netherlands during the war. All of the stories are titled after Christmas songs of the WWII era.I loved the premise of each story, but liked some more than others. The prologue, Winter Wonderland, was abrupt and rushed and I didn't connect with it at all. rating one starThat being said, I still like [...]

    24. When I found out that two of my favorite authors were teaming up with a new-to-me author to write a book of three historical romance novellas taking place at Christmastime, I was so excited.

Sensing Jackson needs help to unravel the problem, Abigail takes him to her father who begins working on the issue. Jackson is not off fighting nor is he farming the land b [...]

    27. It was happy coincidence that I met one of the authors, Cara Putman, a mere month ago. She came to talk to my library about writing inspirational fiction and it was a fabulous talk. She mentioned there was a new Christmas book in the works and lo and behold I have the opportunity to read and review the very book she mentioned. How exciting?! I have to start by saying that I LOVED the premise of the book; three World War II era novellas set during three consecutive Christmas seasons and focusing [...]

    28. "It's amazing, don't you think, that the holiday spirit can be so strong even in the midst of war?"World War II, that is.Where Treetops Glisten is just dripping with Christmas and laced with romance in its wartime holiday accounts that take place from 1941-1945.

    29. This was a wonderful collection that really put me in the Christmas spirit! I loved that each story focused on a sibling at Christmas and the different problems they struggled with. I liked the focus on helping people, whether it was a stranger, a person you used to bully, soldiers on the front lines or Jews in danger.
