The Soldier's Bride
A WWII music box holds a secret for his bride

 
I love it! And I love that I get to share this story with you.

Here's a summary of the book:
 

As WWII ration cards and battle scars fill the country, Evelyn’s heart is under fire. It seems even love is rationed out to the war widow.  She finds a message tucked inside a soldier's music box with the power to change her life.
Don't die with me.
Words written out of love, long-lost but never forgotten.
This romance crosses battlefields and time as the music box touches the lives of two soldiers, a broken father, crippled child, struggling farmer, and a woman once called the soldier's bride.

A Rare Nativity by Sam Beeson

Today I'd like to share one of the most unusual Christmas books I've seen. A Rare Nativity is a collection of photographs accompanying a poem on the unexpected twist of the 12 Days of Christmas.
At first read, I'll be honest, I thought the book was a little strange with its pictures of garbage and short prose but then the twist and beautiful display at the end of the book offered a unique look at how we might forgive our enemies and serve each other this Christmas.

Here's the book blurb:
We have all heard the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, and we have all seen the traditional Christmas crèche. Now, author Sam Beeson and photographers Nina and Terral Cochran combine these two classic Christmas icons to create A Rare Nativity.
Upon reading the first lines of the book, it is clear the narrator holds a bitter grudge as he sends his enemy crude and discarded gifts: On the first night of Christmas I gave my enemy a briar from a tanglewood tree. On the second night of Christmas I gave my enemy two rotten eggs.
Night after night the gifts pile up shards of glass, rusty nails, gnarled twigs, and more. What the narrator s enemy decides to do with each of these odious gifts is nothing less than a Christmas miracle. The photographic creation of the rare nativity at the end of the book is both a work of art and a wonder to behold.

About the Author

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
