Spotlight On. . .Coming Home for Christmas by Carla Kelly


Inspired by the many weekly memes about books.

~~ & ~~

Wrapping up the Christmas edition of “Spotlight On. . .” is a book by Carla Kelly.  It’s an anthology, of sorts, containing three short stories that span three generations of the same family.  All three take place during a war, so the “home for the holiday” aspect has more significance than just visiting distant relatives.  It’s not on my initial list for the Christmas Spirit challenge; however, I’m still in the mood for Christmas stories, so I might read this one before the New Year.
