Book Synopsis



"This tender love story between two wounded people whom God brings together for healing is a book readers will enjoy anytime--but especially at Christmas!" --Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and A Voice in the Wind

Amid war and the fading dream of the Confederacy, a wounded soldier and a destitute widow discover the true meaning of Christmas--and sacrificial love.

Recently widowed, Aletta Prescott struggles to hold life together for herself and her six-year-old son. With the bank threatening to evict them, she discovers an advertisement for the Women's Relief Society auction and applies for a position--only to discover it's been filled. Then a chance meeting with a wounded soldier offers another opportunity--and friendship. But can Aletta trust this man?

Captain Jake Winston, a revered Confederate sharpshooter, suffered a head wound at the Battle of Chickamauga. When doctors deliver their diagnosis, Jake fears losing not only his greatest skill but his very identity. As he heals, Jake is ordered to assist with a local Women's Relief Society auction. He respectfully objects. Kowtowing to a bunch of "crinolines" isn't his idea of soldiering. But orders are orders, and he soon discovers this group of ladies--one, in particular--is far more than he bargained for.

Set against the backdrop and history of the Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee, Christmas at Carnton is a story of hope renewed and faith restored at Christmas.

Christmas at Carnton by Tamara Alexander is a Christmas novella following in the vein of her previous Southern Plantation type of novels. I haven’t read too many so I did not recognize specific characters, so I don’t know if there are any tie-ins to other series. Either way, it worked well as a stand alone! Christmas at Carnton is a Civil War era novella set in Nashville, clocking in at about 250 pages. It took me a week or so to read it because of the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, but it’s a nice little getaway to read by a cozy fire at night. Although I found the plot predictable (or maybe I just read enough to see plot twists repeat), I still enjoyed the story. I quickly fell in love with the characters (especially the little seven year old boys and the mischief they got into) and the setting just sounded as magical as the cover made it look. If you’re looking for a nice little read this season, or even looking for a present for the history lover in your life, then this will hit the spot! Additionally, there are several recipes mentioned throughout the book that are included in the back. Thank you to the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review! It was delightful.
