The only reason to buy this is to read Carla Kelly's wonderful Christmas story but that is all the reason one needs. Amazing. There are good authors in this genre, some very good authors, and then there is Carla who stands alone at the top of the mountain. The depth of emotional connection she crafts is brilliant. She captures the times impeccably. Her characters are always brave and honorable, putting duty and love of family first. Usually, as in this case, her characters are pulled from the middle and lower classes who had enormous challenges due to the horrific war added to cultural limitations.
Very few authors are capable enough to have their work stand next to hers without coming up short. I can't imagine how the other two authors could have thought that was a good idea. The master is bookended by second rate authors. Read the other stories if you wish but DON'T MISS CARLA!!
