A broken promise. An open door. A young woman’s determination to keep her family together.

The Christmas Cactus by Christy Martenson

Coming Autumn 2021!
What a charming story in the style of Janette Oke’s Love Comes Softly series. This story gripped my attention and wouldn’t let me go! Katie Jo is immediately relatable and I felt for her as she battled to keep her family together. Jamie, the hero, and his gentle ways won my heart. Christy’s best novel yet!

The Christmas Cactus is one of the sweetest stories I have ever read. Mrs. Martenson has created a story reminiscent of Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, and Little House on the Prairie. In short, I loved it.

As I edited The Christmas Cactus, I found the simplicity, depth, and wholesomeness of the story to be very refreshing.
