Review: The Christmas Prayer by Wanda Brunstetter

Blurb (from Amazon):

Beloved, bestselling author of Amish fiction, Wanda E. Brunstetter takes readers on a journey in 1850 along the California Trail.
Only the brave—or foolhardy—would attempt a cross-country journey late in the season. Three wagons meet up in Independence, Missouri, in April 1850, and their owners decide to keep forging ahead despite many setbacks and delays. December finds them in the Sierra Nevada Mountains when a sudden snowstorm traps them, obscuring the trail.
Cynthia Cooper is traveling with her mother and the man she has promised to marry. But as Christmas is upon them and they are hunkered down in a small cabin, she is forced to reevaluate her reasons for planning to marry fellow-traveler Walter Prentice. When a widowed father heading to a California ranch and a gold prospector both show an interest in Cynthia, she weighs her dreams for marriage alongside her responsibility to care for her mother. Can love win over her timid heart?

My Review: 

The Christmas Prayer is a quick, clean and sweet historical read. I loved main character Cynthia Cooper from the start. I loved seeing through her eyes what life was like in 1850 going on the California Trail at Christmas time. I could not imagine what they would have endured during those times. 

I give The Christmas Prayer 5 plus stars. I would highly recommend it to readers who love a great, inspiring faith filled Christmas stories.

I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
