merry little christmas | a story

You read that right! Starting this Monday, the 12th of December, a brand new letter-filled story will be hitting the blogs. Emily Ann and I are pleased to announce a series, titled Merry Little Christmas, that features an entirely new cast of characters and settings.

Penny Harper and Juliet Moretti come from very different backgrounds. An orphaned New Yorker and a daughter of a large, boisterous Italian family don't exactly have loads in common. But despite their stark differences, they're knitted together in spirit by the marriage of their siblings.

Living in 1943 isn't easy during the holiday season, but somehow these girls manage to have a merry little Christmas after all.

Keeping in time with the old method we used with Ain't We Got Fun, we will post a letter every day, on one or another's blog, until the bells ring out and Christmas arrives.

Thirteen new letters.

Two fresh characters.

One cheery story.

Merry Christmas, dear readers.

  1. I'm so excited for this! Things are so busy around this time of year that I'd given up on trying to read a Christmas book, but I'll definitely be able to handle this format better! Thanks for making my Christmas brighter! :)

    1. Oh, yay! I'm so glad this came at opportune timing for you. :) Merry Christmas!

  2. This is one of the most charming Christmas gifts I've ever heard of. :)

    I'm really looking forward to reading their letters! :)

    1. Aww! You're sweet, and I'm so glad you're excited to read the letters. Thanks, Eowyn!
