As World War II rages and Hitler begins implementing his "final solution" to systematically and ruthlessly exterminate the Jewish people, Jacob must rely on his wits and a God he's not sure he believes in to somehow escape from Auschwitz and alert the world to the Nazi's atrocities before Fascism overtakes all of Europe. The fate of millions hangs in the balance.

I love fall and I absolutely LOVE pumpkin spiced latte. However, I don't live near a Starbucks or any coffee place so when I found this recipe on Pinterest I was so happy!
|1.||Combine the hot milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice in a blender; blend until frothy. Pour the mixture into 3 coffee mugs to about 2/3 full. Pour 2 ounces coffee into each mug. Garnish each mug with whipped topping and pumpkin pie spice.|

"Heaven and Nature Sing" by Carolyn Miller
When family obligations part two people in love will they ever have a chance to love again? Edith and George take family quite seriously, almost too seriously, until per happenstance they are in each others company once again after having fallen in love years before. Edith longs for a family and George longs for Edith. George must once again win Edith over.
This was an interesting short story. A woman with a child out of wedlock in a day and age when such things were frowned upon. And a poor, wounded solider. When Dwight offers Jenny a job so she can feed her child happiness begins to blossom in two hearts.
"Wonders of His Love" by Erica Vetsch
Oh, my! This story was so toughing, A widow with a heart frozen with hurts as wide as a glacier and a painter with a warm heart just ready to heat up a frozen tundra. The way that Hamish melts Cilla's heart is such a sweet story. A story full of love and grace.
These three stories are perfect to begin the holiday season. Stories that will brighten your day and help you to get ready for warmth and happiness.

Book Description: Snowstorms and babies bring couples together. In Vannetta Chapman’s Stranded in the Snow, widowed single mother Faith Yoder and her baby find temporary refuge from a snowstorm with Elijah King’s generous help. And in Caring for the Amish Baby by Carrie Lighte, after her trip south for the winter is delayed, Amish spinster Leah Zehr must work with Jonathan Rocke to care for her sick friend’s baby.
My Thoughts: The first thing that caught my attention is the cover of this book. A sweet chubby baby! Probably because of all the bad news and the pandemic reading has become a sweet way for me to escape from the doldrums of society. Stranded in the Snow by Vannetta Chapman is about bachelor Elijah King. Elijah is likable fellow and he is determined to find a wife...in the next 12 months! This is a down to earth short story of a bachelor and a widow. A widow with a baby. What a great story of love and giggles!
The next short story, Caring for the Amish Baby is from a new to me author...Carrie Lighte. This fun story caught my heart strings as Leah Zehr and Jonathan Rocke try to help a sick friend. Leah seems to know more about babies than Jonathan but Jonathan comes through at the best of times. Such a fun story!
Two stories in one book! Novellas at their best and not to be missed!
