Alaskan Christmas by Maryann Landers

My Review

Alaskan Christmas, by Maryann Landers is a Christian Christmas novella in the Alaskan Women of Caliber Series. This story focuses on Collin and Pam and their first Christmas as husband and wife. Their plans are to spend Christmas with her family after attending a friend’s wedding. A snowmachine accident makes a slight change in plans.

This is a heart warming story that is quick and easy to read, perfect for an evening. The story is well written and is easy to get caught up in, to feel the tension, the worry and the love. I enjoyed that the story brings in the family we met in the first book in the series. I appreciate the importance of prayer and the care others give to Pam and Collin when he gets injured. I especially enjoyed how the author fills in the background for Pam and her family and gives a peak at what her future holds.

I voluntarily received a complimentary ARC copy of this story from the author, this is my honest review.

About the Book

I’d anticipated my first Christmas as a newlywed with excitement.
Then a crisis sent icicles through the core of my faith. 

After completing my fall semester, I’m excited to join my family at my parents’ log cabin and show my new husband how Christmas in rural Alaska sparkles. Lazy mornings on the couch by the woodstove and helping my mom make festive treats will be the perfect way to regroup before my teaching practicum starts. 

Before leaving to enjoy the holidays, we attend a friend’s wedding at a Bible camp outside of Palmer, Alaska. The rustic backdrop couldn’t be more romantic and memorable until Collin and I have a fight, threatening to crush the joy of the holidays.  

As we face a blustery mishap, will I crumble in a flurry of insecurities or will I discover God’s promised peace and a resolve to plow through?
