Mark Sasse If Love Is a Crime A Christmas Story Colleen Chesebro
Title:  If Love Is a Crime: A Christmas Story
Author:  Mark W. Sasse
Pages:  26 pages
Genre:  Historical Fiction, Christmas Fiction

Christmas Eve, 1852 promises to be a night that Beatrice will never forget when a winter storm blows a young, runaway slave to her tiny cabin in the woods.  What results is a story that is a touching, heartfelt reminder of what Christmas is really all about.

Sasse gives a depth of character to Beatrice that makes you feel like you have known her for a long time.  This short story wrapped me in an embrace of comfort and love in just a few pages, while I was cuddled in a cozy quilt on a chilly winter night. I was filled with compassion for the young child, “Emmy,” and so thankful that she was guided to the loving arms of Beatrice, who provided a shelter if ever one was needed. The miracle of Christmas was truly evident that night.

Are you looking for a quick holiday read to put you in the spirit of Christmas?  This story will reaffirm your belief that as long as there is love anything can be overcome.
