|Sadie's Gift by Niki Turner|
I just finished Niki's novella, which is the second release in the Christmas Traditions Series. Cynthia Hickey's (Handcrafted Christmas) released first and I'm hoping mine (The Fruitcake Challenge) will be up soon. I really enjoyed this story and I think you will, too.
Five Stars *****
I have three reasons to read this story now:
1) Unique story line.
Here's what Niki said about her book: In Sadie's Gift, the heroine, Sadie, is a nurse at a preventorium in the early 1920s, where children who had been exposed to tuberculosis were housed.
Seriously--how many stories have you read with this setting and topic? Tuberculosis was basically a death sentence in those days. Beautiful bibliotherapy balance in this story of seeing the light and the good and the enjoyment of today while coping with a devastating condition.
2) Tragic hero in a Christmas story.
As I started reading the novella, I was immediately surprised by the background of the hero. He's suffered a loss right near Christmas that is significant. I'd not seen anything like it in a Christian historical romance for Christmas. But it works perfectly for the story. And the heroine is so real, I'd like to call her up!
3) Opportunity to get the whole set of novellas!
One of our readers who reads and posts a review of the novella will receive Kindle copies (or Nook) for the entire set at they release. The first OWG reader who contacts me at OWGblog@aol.com with a link to their review will win ebook copies of the entire set, which will release through October!
