The Heart of Christmas: A Mosaic Christmas Anthology III
♥ Brenda S. Anderson - Broken Noel
The Christmas season had always been a time for joy for Thomas Nordberg and his family, but when his wife succumbs to cancer just before Thanksgiving, that joy is buried with her. In his grief, his relationship with his daughter splinters as well. A gift to another hurting child may be the only thing that restores joy in their lives.

As it has the last two years, The Mosaic Collection is again releasing a Christmas anthology, The Heart of Christmas. This year some new authors complement the collection, along with some of my favorites.
Star Light by Sara Davison wowed me! Even though I knew I was in for a big surprise by the event causing Felicity’s grief, I was still stunned as it was revealed! Such a tender story of a woman opening her heart for healing and, more importantly, allowing the Lord to have preeminence in her life.
I loved that Felicity’s story contained a fictionalized account of the Christmas story as well – and the fun idea of setting out the nativity set in the twelve days before Christmas, reading a portion of the story each day before putting out another figurine.
Broken Noel by Brenda S. Anderson is a lovely story about Thomas, whose wife Lacy recently lost her battle with cancer, and the grief he experienced afterward. His struggle with anger towards the man he blamed for her death was palpable!
I loved the sensitive manner in which the author addressed these things and how she allowed Thomas’ heart to turn back to the Lord. His eight-year-old daughter was so precious!
If you enjoy Christmas stories with a strong emphasis on the real reason for celebrating the season, you won’t want to miss The Heart of Christmas collection.
