About the book:
The crunch of newly fallen snow, the weight of wartime
Siblings forging new paths and finding love in three stories, filled with the wonder of Christmas
Turn back the clock to a different time, listen to Bing Crosby sing of sleigh bells in the snow, as the realities of America's involvement in the Second World War change the lives of the Turner family in Lafayette, Indiana.
In Cara Putman's White Christmas, Abigail Turner is holding down the Home Front as a college student and a part-time employee at a one-of-a-kind candy shop. Loss of a beau to the war has Abigail skittish about romantic entanglements---until a hard-working young man with a serious problem needs her help.
Abigail's brother Pete is a fighter pilot hero returned from the European Theater in Sarah Sundin's I'll Be Home for Christmas, trying to recapture the hope and peace his time at war has eroded. But when he encounters a precocious little girl in need of Pete's friendship, can he convince her widowed mother that he's no longer the bully she once knew?
In Tricia Goyer's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Meredith Turner, "Merry" to those who know her best, is using her skills as a combat nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Halfway around the world from home, Merry never expects to face her deepest betrayal head on, but that's precisely what God has in mind to redeem her broken heart.
The Turner family believes in God's providence during such a tumultuous time. Can they absorb the miracle of Christ's birth and His plan for a future?

I really enjoyed the novella collection, "Where Treetops Glisten!" This is a beautiful Christmas collection by three fabulous authors that each share a story involving the Turner family, a kind-hearted, fun family that is trying to survive World War II and yet also keep the magic and love of the Christmas season alive. I love how each of the three novellas focus on a different member of the Turner family and the stories span a three year time span. This time period is brought to life and I love how various aspects of life during the war are highlighted. In the very first story I really enjoyed the small town feel with the candy and soda shop which Abigail works at and the yummy descriptions of making the drinks and treats like candy canes. This is the perfect book for each historical fiction fan as it will transport you to a different time period and ignite the Christmas spirit in each reader.
