I enjoyed these short Christmas stories. The plots and characters were unique. I’m not sure which of them was my favorite, perhaps the last one because of the ending, or maybe the fourth story because I could feel with the main character, but they all held such good messages. It was a little hard in several of the stories to get a good feel of the time period, and sometimes the conversations seemed a bit forced or out of place, but over all, the stories were well done and I didn’t want them to end.
