Every family has them - those traditions that spawn memories and bind families together. Some started by chance. Some take effort to maintain. But all have a way of sneaking into those holiday festivities and taking a firm position within the family. In Everlasting Light, Alaina McKenna starts a Christmas candles tradition as she prays for her husband's return from the Civil War. Olivia Schuler delights in discovering the Mandalay family traditions, or Yuletide Treasures, even as she learns a lasting lesson about contentment. In Angels in the Snow, Lass Talbot struggles to carry on her deceased mother's Christmas traditions even though her bitter father has banned Christmas festivities from their home. Finally, Elizabeth Evans longs to recreate her husband's Christmas traditions in their new home, but she ends up creating a new tradition with her original Christmas Cake. The Christmas Threads of tradition unravel from the past to weave into the traditions of today. And, handled with love, they will become part of the tapestry of future generations.Boeshaar, Andrea is the author of 'Christmas Thread - Andrea Boeshaar - Paperback' with ISBN 9781577488118 and ISBN 1577488113.
