Holiday Book Review: The Gifts of Christmas Anthology

Sarah Raplee writes scary, funny paranormal and steampunk romances. Animals have infiltrated every manuscript for reasons that are deeply buried in her subconscious. She writes because she can't help it, and it's more fun than most of the alternatives. Her first novel, BLINDSIGHT, will be available in January 2015.

The Gifts of Christmas - An Anthology from Windtree Press, edited by Susan Lute, is a charming, eclectic collection of stories set during the Holiday Season. I loved having short stories to read in what little down time I have at this time of year!

Variety makes this twelve-author anthology a delight. A single illustration on each title page hints at what is to come. Every story is like a present waiting to be unwrapped. Anything might be inside! Tales of romantic love; of miracles, magic and mysteries; of loss and new beginnings—some poignant, some humorous, some sweet—will whisk you away to recharge before your next Holiday errand.

I hope Windtree Press publishes a Holiday Anthology every year. I’ll definitely buy them. In fact, I’ll pre-order!

I'd love for you to visit my website at www.sarahraplee.com

I agree, this is a wonderful collection of stories, including a non-fiction entry and a children's short story. The Windtree Press authors put their hearts into this collection.
