A Christmas Review

A Stubborn Sweetness and Other Stories for the Christmas SeasonA Stubborn Sweetness and Other Stories for the Christmas Season by Katherine Paterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have long loved Katherine Paterson's collections of Christmas stories, Angels and Other Strangers and A Midnight Clear, so I was excited about this new collection...only it isn't a new collection; it's a compilation of stories from the aforementioned books, with only one new story. If you haven't read Paterson's Christmas stories before, you are in for a treat: They're not about lights and tinsel; they are about the Incarnate Word and the impact of His dwelling among us. These are called family stories, but some of them are a bit gritty for young children -- read them ahead of time if you plan to share them with your family. Thanks to the publisher for providing a free e-book for review through NetGalley.

Happy Reading and Merry Christmas!
