About the Book
In Joy to the World, three popular romance authors come together to offer a heartwarming collection of holiday Regency romance. Based on lines from a beloved Christmas carol, these three novellas have depth, faith, and satisfying stories all packed into the perfect length for readers to curl up and take a brief break from their holiday busyness.
“Heaven and Nature Sing” by Carolyn Miller
Two music lovers, deeply devoted to each other, were on the brink of engagement when family circumstances drove them apart. How can they ever overcome both their obligations and their fears to find their way back into each other’s arms?
“Far as the Curse Is Found” by Amanda Barratt
One winter night, a woman struggling to provide for her illegitimate child encounters a scarred veteran of the Napoleonic Wars on the streets of London. Can love conquer the darkness of two broken pasts?
“Wonders of His Love” by Erica Vetsch
A Scots portrait painter finds work at a noble manor house over the holidays. He never imagined he’d fall in love with the emotionally frozen widow there. Now he wants nothing more than to thaw her heart.
In My Opinion
Three of my go-to authors come together in this collection of novellas that has shot to the top of my favorite Christmas reads list. Carolyn Miller, Amanda Barratt, and Erica Vetsch whisk readers back in time to the Regency Era.
Although with shorter word count, each of these stories felt complete by the end with happy endings for each of the three couples as they’ve overcome their challenges—very different ones in each story—and found love, grace, and abundance during the Christmas season.
I cannot pick a favorite out of this collection, either. Each story is different than the others, giving each its own merits and strengths. If you’re looking for a Christmas collection to read by the cozy fire and sweep you away, Joy to the World is exactly what you should lose yourself in.
