Publisher's Summary

In Kristi Ann Hunter's "Legacy of Love", Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job...and introduce her to the woman's grandson, a man far above her station. 

In Karen Witemeyer's "Gift of the Heart", widow Ruth Albright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from the local banker. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love. 

In Sarah Loudin Thomas' "A Shot at Love", Fleeta Brady's rough-and-tumble childhood means she prefers hunting to more feminine activities. She never expected her family's brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance. 

In Becky Wade's "Because of You", Maddie Winslow has spent years in love with a man whose heart was already spoken for. When a church Christmas project brings them together and she stumbles upon an old family brooch, might it finally be her turn for love?

such a great collection of stories that intertwined beautifully. I loved each story as the olden days story was relatable and the modern day story was the full range of emotions. loved it

Just What I Love About Christmas Stories

All four authors used the central theme of the heirloom brooch mentioned in the title but, other than that, the stories were very different. I listened to the audiobook format and was pleased that each story was read by a different voice actor—for instance, the story set in England was read by a British actor, the one in the south was a believable southern accent. If you love romances that focus on characters and their developing love for each other, happy endings for all, and no heavy-breathing sex scenes, these are the type stories you will like. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Nice Christmassy Book

I really liked the overall atmosphere of this book .. and I REALLY liked how connected are the stories through that Brooch the family heir loom .. here are my rating for the stories
Legacy of Love : the concept was ok I guess although I did like the grandmother story much more than the relationship between Sarah and Renold .. but it was sweet 3/5

Gift of the Heart : CUUUUUTTEEEE LOVED it soo much :D 5/5

A Shot At Love: so boring .. the relayionship didn't grab me at all 2/5

Because of You: it was nice reminded me of an indian movie ( Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ) but turns out I prefer a new relationship over a long crush coming true 3/5

I feel so christmassy now :)

The Narration was alright .. the third story wasn't that good in terms of narration

Simply Lovely!

I very much enjoyed each novella in this collection.
The connection through the brooch was very unique. I love that it was passed from mother to daughter. True love really did come to those that wore it. The authors did a wonderful job connecting the stories yet keeping each a full story on its own.
I look forward to more from each of the authors!
I highly recommend this holiday collection!

A little disappointed...

This book started out really good but it didn't keep its momentum. The last two stories, while sweet were a little flat. The narrators were very good, I don't feel like their presentation was the issue. I may listen again but it won't be one I'll run to.

Never too late to purchase an heirloom for my own family

A heartwarming Christmas story set through the ages. Loved how they all tied together! I was nervous that because different authors wrote the stories that it wouldn’t flow but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Although the stories were from different eras, they were tied together by a single heirloom. These stories have inspired me to go purchase something to pass down from generation to generation in my own family. It’s never too late to start a family tradition. Fantastic job by all the authors.

Christian Multigenerational Romances

Christmas Heirloom

Legacy of Love by Kristi Ann Hunter

What a beautiful story about an amazing woman!  This aging grandmother had a gift of love and living a life well that made her an eccentric in her circle, but what a legacy she left for her steadfast aide and her favorite grandson!  The narration was superb and was the perfect screeching mother and aristocratic men along with the gentle grandmother and the passionate companion!


Gift of the Heart by Karen Witemeyer

What an endearing story!  So many moments of touching wisdom mixed with heart stopping sentimental possibilities of deep passionate forever love!  A truly touching love story!  A delightful narration!

I loved the Southern drawl of the mother and the adorable voice of the joyful child!

A Shot at Love by Sarah Loudin Thomas

What an amazing story!  I loved the Christmas sermon and how Fleeta finally understood her worth in the eyes of God!  He loved her regardless of how unfeminine she was or how abandoned she felt as an orphan!  But God isn't the only one who sees her worth and wants to treasure her!  Great narration!  I think Fleetwood was portrayed perfectly!

Because of You by Becky Wade

I don't read (or listen) to a lot of contemporary romances, but I did enjoy this story!  The fight over the guilt was powerful, but her resolution was great!  I enjoyed the narration very much.  The sweet children were my favorite voices!

Silly stories that got sillier as they went along

So unrealistic! I’m not sure why so many authors feel the need to make women from the past ALL seen as if they want to be (and were) manly, and yet, some handsome man found them attractive! Seriously!!

Nice stories

Four Christmas romances in four time periods by four different authors, but keenly connected by one heirloom passed from generation to generation. Sweet Holiday reads.

Great Christmas Themed Compilation

I really enjoyed this grouping of Novelas that followed the theme of a precious heirloom as well as the people who owned it and the loves of their lives. My favorites were the first, third and fourth one in the series, perhaps because I enjoy the setting and time periods of them more. I also thoroughly enjoyed the audible version of it.

Loved this experience!!!! It was wonderful!

I have never read an interwoven story with four writers before. It was lovely to travel the ages of love and see where the brooch took them! I have always read anything by Karen, but now it has exposed me to three other authors to check out!
