Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Christmas Nostalgia Forrest’s stories are the perfect blend of sentiment and nostalgia, drama and happy endings that we look for in fiction of the Christmas season. And his beautifully-described settings of rustic snow-capped farmhouses and stamping teams of powerful horses breathing clouds of steam embody the old-time Christmases we all like to picture, even if we’ve never lived outside a city. No matter how busy the season gets, make a little time for this book and Forrest will bring the Christmas spirit to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Christmas Read and Gift What a perfect heart warming book to read just before the holiday season. There's something to be said about a book you never want to put down and that leaves you feeling so warm inside. It also makes one wish we could go back in time when we enjoyed the very simple things in life. I have ordered several copies as I can't think of a better gift for family and friends this Christmas.
