October won't arrive until tomorrow, but publishers are already releasing holiday titles. Now don't get me wrong, I do like reading a good Christmas story, but this time a year I'm more in the mood to read a R.L. Stine or Stephen King title. Being a blogger, I don't have any control over what books are available to review. After I already reviewed one holiday title this year, I was going to take a break until November, but once I saw Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman and Sarah Sundin were the authors of the new anthology, Where Treetops Glisten, I had to review it.

The anthology centers on the Turner family, whom are living in Lafayette, Indiana during the WWII. Cara Putman pens the first story, titled White Christmas, where college student Abigail Turner is still mourning the death of boyfriend. She has no plans on ever finding love again that is until she meets Jackson, a man that needs her help.

I'll Be Home For Christmas is written by Sarah Sundin and centers on Abigail's brother Pete, a fighter pilot returning home to try to put the war behind him. His faith seems to be a lost that is until he meets a young girl and his mother, a woman he once bullied when they were young.

Abigail and Pete's sister, Meredith, is stationed in the Netherlands as a combat nurse in Tricia Goyer's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. She has never really gotten over the breakup with her boyfriend, but she must deal with her past feelings, as the man who broke her heart has stepped back into her life.

I have to admit that the WWII era isn't my favorite to read about, though I have read a few titles this year that are WWII related. That being said, I signed up to review this title based on the fact that I have enjoyed the three author's other writings. The authors all have a natural talent for crafting historical settings and the WWII backgrounds works well in each story. Overall, I enjoyed reading the three stories (and the Winter Wonderland prologue buy Sarah Sundin) in Where Treetops Glistens and I recommend it to other readers.
