About the book:
In this special holiday novella, Stacy Henrie returns to the World War I setting of her Of Love and War series for a heartwarming read that's perfect for the Christmas season.

TIS THE SEASON FOR SECOND CHANCES

Having experienced the heartache of unrequited love, Maria Schmitt desperately seeks a new life. Landing a position as a clerk in a Sioux City bank is just what she needs to get started on her journey toward healing. But a dashing stranger soon puts her job-and her heart-in jeopardy.

Saving lives was all Dale Emerson ever wanted to do . . . until a fateful day in France shattered his career as a surgeon. He lost everything that mattered, and the last thing he wants to do is resign himself to a life without medicine working at his uncle's bank. Then he meets Maria, a compassionate woman who can see past his scars to the man he once was-and the man he could be again. With Christmas right around the corner, these two wounded hearts may find that hope and a little holiday cheer are just the ticket to letting go of regrets-and embracing a future full of love and possibility.

My thoughts:

A Christmas Hope was a wonderful Christmas novella! After reading the first book in this series, I was eager to see what was going to happen in this story. The main character, Maria, was not a favorite character of mine from Hope At Dawn, but this novella made me see her in a new light! I really loved both her and Dale's characters! I felt for Dale and was hoping for a happy ending. 

Overall, a great novella. The story was sweet and moving. I recommend it if you enjoy historical romances. I loved it!!
