4 Stories Follow an Heirloom Nativity Set Through Four Generations

Be transported to unique time periods as you follow a treasured family nativity set through four generations of the Shepherd family.

While Shepherds Watch Are Keeping

by Susanne Dietze
Massachusetts, 1899

This Christmas, Pastor Seth Shepherd has little to offer his flock of congregants in their time of need until Jessalyn Grant, a mysterious newcomer, comes to his aid.

Review: This is such a sweet romance. Watching Seth and Jesse fall into a great friendship that honored God and their church was such a sweet way to celebrate Christmas. Watching the way they ministered to the members of the church is a great example to us all. Absolutely adorable.

The Wise Guy and the Star

by Shannon McNear
Charleston, South Carolina, to Kansas City, Missouri, 1919

While journeying by train, Stella Shepherd befriends war veteran Nat Wise. She helps him find renewed faith in God, but could he also be the answer to the wanderings of her own heart?

Review: What a wonderful story. Trains seem so romantic and fun. I wish we could experience that fabulous conveyance as it was…. Maybe 😂
Watching the Wise brothers meet Seth and Jessy’s daughter, and getting to meet Aunt Lila was also a wonderful ride, one you won’t want to miss. I loved how, not only is the nativity passed through the generations… But also a love of soup.

On Angel Wings

by Janine Rosche
Kansas City, Missouri, 1945

Elodie Wise plans a fundraising ball with the help of her friend Benjamin Gabriel. But can she look past the swanky Hollywood headliner to see the man who truly loves her?

Review: Elodie Wise, Nat and Stella’s daughter, has just returned to her home and family after time as a prisoner of war. To get herself reacclimated she decides to throw a fundraiser to help the families of other returning soldiers. As always her best friend from childhood, Benjamin Gabriel, offers to help. But secrets and regrets cloud the path to the future.

Making Room at the Inn

by Deborah Raney
Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Present Day

Benjie Gabriel thinks the chef’s position she’s just taken at an award-winning bed and breakfast is temporary—just a stepping stone. The B&B’s owner, Trevor Keye, thinks the same. Will five months be long enough for them to figure out that what they’ve each been longing for, praying for, is right beneath their noses?

Review: I absolutely loved this book. This tied all of the others together and brought closure to the series, even though it would be great as a stand alone too! Plus, their reliance on Christ is inspiring.

Hott Review:

Overall, I absolutely LOVED Love’s Pure Light it’s a sweet series of stories that reminds us of God’s love, reminds us to cherish the family He’s given to us, and brings the joy of the season back to the forefront. Don’t miss this fabulous series of Christmas memories.
