A CHRISTMAS HOPE
illed with Christmas spirit and strong suspense, Perry’s latest in her annual holiday series is the perfect present for the season. Through heroine Claudine, the author clearly shows the powerless position of even upper-class women in Victorian times. It is heartening to see the heroine grow stronger, and Perry does this without turning her into a 20th-century woman. A Christmas Hope has a strong atmosphere, pertinent details of a Victorian Christmas and a heartwarming conclusion.
