Blurb:
 
Spend a heartfelt Christmas on Schooley’s Mountain as four generations make a house a home. Carpenter Stephan Yost vows to build a precocious spinster a home by Christmas. Civil War widow Mary Ann Plum learns the greatest peace on earth comes from giving and receiving love. Olympia Paris must protect the orphanage she grew up in from a man intending to play Father Christmas to most of the town. Joy Benucci turns to a modern-day Scrooge to save a transitional home for foster kids. Will Christmas be a season of miracles in their lives?      

My Thoughts:
 
First, I want to say that after reading this book, I have completed my Goodreads 2016 Challenge to read 52 books this year!!!  So excited!!
 
As for the book itself, it was so endearing.
 
I loved all four novellas equally.  They were so wonderfully written and such sweet stories.
 
I loved that the house built in the first novella set the stage for the rest of the book.  It was so interesting to think about the history of the house and the different residents who called it home.
 
I'm really enjoying the season and especially reading these Christmas stories.  And it is even flurrying!  I'm getting in the Christmas Spirit!
