#10: The Christmas Star Bride

Esther Hathaway lost her one true love at Gettysburg twenty years ago, but she is still willing to celebrate her niece’s wedding by commissioning Jeremy Snyder to paint her portrait. Will Esther's prayers for God to ease her loneliness be answered by a wounded vet?

My thoughts:  Amanda Cabot is one of my favorite historical authors and I’m glad she sent me a review copy of this story. Only 45 pages, it is a quick read.

I enjoyed getting to know Esther and Jeremy and their stories. I thought Esther was a very sweet woman and I could tell why her niece loved her so much. I also felt for both Esther and Jeremy when they lost everything they dreamed of thanks to the War Between the States. I wanted them to find happiness.

This was a great story. If you are looking for a good Christmas novella, you’ll want to read The Christmas Star Bride.
