Where Treetops Glisten


by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, Sara Sundin

Discovering romance during the Christmas season is more magical due to the looming hardship of World War II. The three Turner siblings take a chance on love when the future is uncertain in these three connected novellas. Set in 1940s Lafayette, Indiana, Where Treetops Glisten tells the tale of Abigail, Pete, and Merry Turner— each whom faces the uncertainty of life during wartime and relies on personal faith and God’s leading to find lasting love and enduring hope for the days ahead.

White Christmas by Cara Putman follows a candy cane-making Purdue student with a vow to avoid romantic entanglements and the stoic farm boy dedicated to saving his family home who desperately needs the help the Turners can provide.

Sarah Sundin’s I’ll Be Home for Christmas tells the story of a fighter pilot running on empty, a lonely widow, and a little girl searching for what she has lost. Will an unusual Christmas gift fill their hearts again?

Finally, Tricia Goyer’s novella Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas follows a combat nurse offering care and cheer to injured soldiers on the front lines as Christmas nears. When her patients and the Dutch villagers discover it is her birthday, they work together to give her a great gift—a reason to believe in love again.


One book, one family, three siblings and three stories. This is a unique book. Set during WWII, we are given the gift of three Christmas stories.

Abigail Turner brings a new acquaintance home so that her lawyer father can help him with a big problem.

Her brother Pete has his own problems to deal with, but a little girl helps him find patience and love.

Her sister Merry is a nurse on the frontline in the Netherlands. Her heart has been broken by a Nazi sympathizer. Can she learn to love again? It doesn’t look like it.

Thank you Ms Putman, Ms Sundin and Ms Goyer. Your noels always move me, but this collaboration is special. You three have written it as one heart.
