“This book contained a depth that I don’t usually find in a Love Inspired book. I found the characters in this novel so well developed and matched that I couldn’t put the book down. I loved the things that Sam and Celeste had in common both the good and the bad. And little Parker was so adorable. I really loved reading about his interactions with Sam especially.” ~ 100 Pages per Hour Blog
“O yes. Do you have a worm that’s chewing inside of you? Is it bitterness or is it self-doubt? Is it jealousy or something you’re not even sure of? Yuletide Redemption by Jill Kemerer deals with loss and the bitterness in life and towards God. And boy, was it a kicker! I almost wanted to jump in there and smack a certain character. I want to knock some sense into said character. Though I understand his/her plight and reason for such bitterness, but you can truly see how bitterness can “rot your bones.” Not only such, it can drive away the good things in your life, and hurt those that love you.
Back to the book. Being the 4th book in the series, it really doesn’t matter, because you won’t get lost at all. This book focuses on our main characters, though other characters from the series does make appearances throughout. I really enjoyed how the author penned Celeste’s story, her struggle as a sudden single parent, and the survivor’s guilt that continues to torment her. O, did I say too much? For a story of this length, the level of life and internal struggles these characters face – heartwrenching is to say the least.” ~ Just Commonly Blog
“This book touched me in so many ways. Two people having to learn to come to terms with their own scares and how to deal with them. This book is full of love, faith, devotion, heartache and pain. A book that helps bring a light of hope.” ~ Cheryl B. Book Blog
“This book is easily a 5 star rating in my personal opinion because it shows that with love, encouragement and faith that anything that seems impossible is actually possible with God, family and friends.” ~ Random Times with the Traveling Gypsy Blog
“The author did a fabulous job of not only letting her characters struggle but what it looks like taking all those tiny determined steps and coming out the other side. Even if the other side isn’t puppy dogs and rainbows every day.
Yuletide Redemption is filled with . . . life. But it is also filled with hope and what it can look like when we fix our eyes upon Jesus.” ~ Sing Over Me Blog
“Kemerer has a way of creating vivid scenes and characters in just a few sweeping sentences. Readers are instantly drawn into the storyline, and the charming town of Lake Endwell, Michigan. I think many readers will relate to Celeste and Sam as they struggle to overcome the life-altering events of the past year and learn to rely on the Lord. Kemerer’s novel rings loud with the love and hope of the Christmas season.” ~ Amanda Everett Writer Blog
