So why three stars? The town in the other books was Radford Springs, in this one, it's Radford Crossing. Same town layout, same characters, different town name. In this book at location 1003, the town is Radford Springs again, later it goes back to Radford Crossing.
Next issue, Buster/Butch Parish/Parrish. History has shown that some people came west and reinvented themselves, this character changed in the series with no explanation. Did Ms. Clemmons let someone else write under her name without sharing the storyboards? As stated in the title, confusing content, but a really good story.
This story takes place in Radford Crossing, Texas in November of 1874. After losing both her husband and unborn child in an accident, Celia Dubois has moved back in with her parents in Radford Crossing. Two months earlier, the townspeople had their church burned down by bandits. The town’s spirit has not recuperated and they are sorely lacking in Christmas spirit.
Celia’s marriage had been arranged. She did not love her husband but did care for him. She grieves the loss of a man so young but deeply grieves the loss of her child. Living with her parents is not easy as they are also grieving. Her parents own the local mercantile shop and Celia has begun to work for her father at the store. Even with so much sorrow, Celia is desperate for the townspeople to revive their holiday spirit so she hatches a plan for the community to come together and plan a series of Christmas events that is sure to get everyone in a festive mood.
Eduardo Montoya noticed Celia as soon as she moved to town and told his friend that he was going to marry her. He slowly begins to woo Celia but must also face the disapproval of her parents.
This is a sweet story of how one woman managed to bring the town together and revive the town’s Christmas spirit, making it turn out to be one of the most festive they’ve ever had. It also ends up to be a very special one for Celia as well.
This book takes place in 1874 and centers around the community of Radford Crossing and Stone Mountain. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I will definitely read more of this series as I would love the background of many of the characters. That being said I felt like I wasn't missing out on too much.
Celia Dubois has just moved back into town with her parents, George and Harriett Sturdivant, after the death of her husband. Her mother is depressed and Celia wants to bring the Christmas spirit back into their community.
Eduardo Montoya lives out at Stone Mountain with his parents and is very interested in courting Celia. Unfortunately Celia's parents are not happy with it, although Celia does begin to spend time with him. Yet Celia begins to laugh again and her parents wonder what has finally made her happy again.
One thing I found funny was that the teacher in town was gossiping over the "meanest kid" and everyone knowing who it was. In this day it is so politically incorrect that I truly enjoyed it in the story.
Another great book by Caroline ClemmonsThis one is about Rosalyns childhood friend Celia who moves to be with her parents after being widowed at a young age.She feels the town has lost the Christmas spirit and initiates new Christmas activities while being courted by Eduardo Montoya..You will love this novella about all your friends from Stone Mountain.
