Christmas TreeHi Friends,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are looking forward to celebrating the Christmas season with friends and family. We love Christmas, and as soon as we put away the Thanksgiving leftovers, we get out the Christmas decorations. The tree is up and the house is ready, so I hope you’ll stop by and pay us a visit with our Virtual Christmas House Tour.

This month I’m hosting a special giveaway for those who subscribe to my email newsletter. I have two books to giveaway: A Wreath of Snow by Liz Curtis Higgs and An Amish Second Christmas with four novellas by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Ruth Reid, and Tricia Goyer. These books would make a lovely gift!

    This series is on my must read list. Like you, I’ve become fascinated by WWI Especially since it’s now been a century. I would love to go to England and see some of the Centennial memorial exhibits that are out there. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Thank you for all you have done to make my life so happy by sharing the ARCs of your wonderful novels with me so I can read, review, and tell others about them. The two novels you are giving away sound delightful and I would be tickled pink to win them.
