Praise for A Log Cabin Christmas

The authors do a good job of showing the complex relationships between men and women.  There are misunderstandings, fearing to accept or declare love, trying to deal with the children in the family, and then living in a one or two bedroom log cabin is enough to get on anyone nerves.  There are different nationalities, odd family units, dangers from animals and Indians, and more.  The authors are very factual about living back in the 1800’s.  It wasn’t easy, but a well-built cabin and someone to love makes it a lot better.
This book would make a nice Christmas gift.  It’s a book that would be fun to read each Christmas season, just pack it away with your Christmas ornaments.  The stories are short enough they would work for reading aloud, too.  I really enjoyed reading it
.  --Marianne Arkins,  Long and Short Reviews

Although they are all set in the pioneer days, each of these stories is truly timeless.  Love, faith and redemption are consistent themes throughout the collection, with each set of characters struggling to find their way through physical and emotional trials.  Faith and trust in God is the overriding theme, connecting the stories in the collection as strongly as the holiday setting itself.  A wonderful introduction to the work of nine talented authors, A Log Cabin Christmas is a collection you will return to time after time.   -- Joyce Greenfield, Eye on Romance

Author's Insight

The collection began with each author writing about a log cabin and love. Contributors came from all over the country. My log cabin was a store in Brownsville, Oregon but there were school cabins and churches and the comfort of homey log cabins. Seems everyone has a log cabin image nestled in their hearts.
