HASH(0xa6282144) out of 5 stars Kleypas entry great; it is also in two other anthologies! July 7 2008
By E. Lynch - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
A Christmas Present (1994) contains three holiday stories. Loretta Chase: Falling Stars; Judith E. French: Gifts of the Heart; and Lisa Kleypas: Surrender. The cover indicates it was "free with purchase" which leads me to believe each of these short stories were published previously (as the Kleypas entry was).

Surrendar is also in the anthology "Christmas Love Stories" Avon Books, 1991 and also in the very recent "Gifts of Love."

I will review at this moment "Surrender" and hope to read and review the other two short works at a later time. Surrender is one of those few stories which actually is well developed despite the shortened nature. Jason is a man tormented by his lower working class childhood who has made it good and left it all behind. The last step was marriage to a Boston nabob's daughter. He chose his school friend's sister (Laura) to fulfill this wish in bringing himself (and resultant children) into society. But it is not a marriage made in heaven and there is much misunderstanding to overcome. Add sexual tension to Jason's feelings of inferiority and you have quite an explosion ready to happen. You really wonder if it will all work out! Great secondary characters including Jason's family that he left behind (but not forgotten!). Worth getting this short story in any anthology it is in.
HASH(0xa618f090) out of 5 stars Three Christmas Stories in the book Nov. 27 2015
By Callie - Published on

You get three stories in this book I did not realize that I had already read Gifts of the Heart in another book and reviewed it. The story was about a woman married for 26 years and was told her husband's body had been found. He had gone on a serch for their son who had been captured by Indians two years before. She would not believe that her husband was dead. The first story Falling Stars was about two people meeting after ten years. She had married soon after their first meeting was now a widow with two daughters. You wonder was their magic in the Christmas star did that bring them back together. You find out what happened all those years ago is there a second chance for them. The last book Surrender was about two people that met five years before when she fifteen. He was Irish and in trade and wanted a better life he met her through her brother they were in school together. He came back five years later and married her.. She because she was in love with him and he to better himself in a higher class of people. The marriage was going poorly he thought she was cold did not understand her at all. She had no knowledge of martial life due to her strict upbringing. You are hoping that they will get a happy ending but they will have to open up to one another for this to happen. Beware that all these stories have been in other Christmas books. I wish I had known that.
