Book 6 of 31 Christmas Book Reviews: Blog Tour, Book Review, Excerpt, Author Interview, and a GIVEAWAY!!!

About:

A collection of short stories honoring the birth of the Savior From two siblings caught up in the harrowing days of World War II to separated foster children in the US… From a memorable road trip across the Southeast to the reunion of a war-torn family… You’ll be swept into the Christmas spirit with the endearing stories tucked inside these pages. The storylines range from family to romance to the bond of community, with settings scattered across America and beyond. Behold the beauty of the Savior’s birth with this gathering of stories that warm the soul and bless the heart.

 

My Review!
Genre: Historical, Christmas, some Romance, Christian fiction.

My Rating: 5 stars.

My Recommendation: Almost anyone, it’s not too romantic.

My Favorite character/s: I am going to give my favorite character and story in Behold! So, for stories, my favorite is Christmas Homecoming, it is sad and yet, it has a lining of hope, and ends in a wonderful spot for the characters but a horrid spot for me, because I want more of the characters in Christmas Homecoming! Molly is my favorite character, I think… It was a little too short for me to pick a favorite, so, I guess I don’t really have a favorite!

My Verse for Molly is Psalm 35:9
And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation. (King James Version.)

My Thoughts: This collection is wonderful! I was super happy to be able to beta-read this book for Faith since I loved her book Love Needs No Words, and I liked this one almost as much but not quite it was close because they are so different that I can’t compare them.
I loved how these books focused on the birth of Christ and family more than just the season! I really hope you one, ENTER THE GIVEAWAY, and two, CHECK OUT THE BOOK!!!
(I received this book from the author for my honest review and I am truly happy to provide it!)

About the author!

Saved by God’s grace, Faith Potts is a teenage writer and homeschool graduate, living with her family and beloved yellow labs in the North Carolina mountains. When she’s not weaving stories, consuming large amounts of coffee, reading stacks of books, or studying American Sign Language, she can be found laughing harder than is healthy, daydreaming, and—of course—blowing dandelions.

 

Excerpt!

“Burn patient,” the driver spoke again, breaking uninvited into Ruth’s thoughts. “Is there anywhere specific you would like him?”
Ruth pointed to the right side of the ward. “Over there near the stove should be fine.” As the men continued past her, she quickly wedged the door open with a chair, then shed her coat and gloves.
She turned back toward the ward to get to work—and found the ambulance driver standing nearby, looking over the room of wounded men. “I don’t think I’ll ever get used to seeing all these messed-up guys.”
Ruth lifted her eyes to the man’s face, startled by his honesty. “Me neither.”
Obviously uncomfortable at having brought attention to himself, he glanced her way and cleared his throat. “I’m Stephen, by the way.”
Ruth nodded and forced a smile. When he continued to look at her, she straightened with a start. He probably expected her name in return.
“Oh, I’m Ruth. A pleasure to meet you, Stephen.” Now will you please get on about your work so I can get on about mine?
“The pleasure is all mine, Nurse Ruth.”

Author interview!

What was the first story you completed?
The first story I ever completed was a fan-fiction off of the Circle C Adventures series by Susan K. Marlow. I started writing because of a fan-fiction contect Mrs. M was holding in 2014, and I haven’t been able to stop since. 😉
Who is your biggest inspiration when you write?
I’m not sure who my biggest inspiration is, but a few that came to mind are the ladies behind Go Teen Writers. Stephanie Morrill, Jill Williamson, and Shannon Dittemore are each amazing writers themselves, and author a fabulous blog for aspiring writers and dream-chasers.
Of the books you have published, which is your favorite?
Of the books I’ve published, Dandelion Dust holds the title of ‘favorite.’ It’s the first book I wrote and will always hold a special place in my heart. Although, it’s now second-place as favorite book I’ve written… 😉
Out of all your characters which is your least favorite?
This question made me laugh—and think. From each story I’ve written, the one that sticks out as least favorite is Randolph, from my WWII novel. He has THE most annoying personality. You’d be more likely to have a conversation with a mountain lion than get along with this guy. I’m planning to work on his character more during edits, but I’m not sure if it’ll make me like him more or even less… xD
What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
One of my favorite traditions is decorating the house, inside and out. Lights of all kinds, greenery and Christmas trees, And I also love reading the Christmas story, usually many times. 🙂
