    1. What do we sacrifice for success without realising? When his life is thrown into turmoil with no notice two weeks before Christmas, Robert faces a number of challenges he had never anticipated. The choices he makes will be the difference between success or failure as a father and family man.The story itself is well-written and nicely developed. I wasn’t expecting the ending to happen as it did, but the ability to surprise a reader thus is one mark of a good writer. ‘The Gift’ is an enjoyab [...]

    2. Dad steps up to the plate!I read this short story as part of a winter-themed box set. As a mom myself, I always wonder what would happen if I ever 'ran away from home' and left my husband to take care of the holiday hassle, the gift-shopping and the kids. Mom gets even! Well, when Robert Chalmers wife gets called away a few weeks for Christmas to care for her sick mother, all of a sudden Robert has to deal with just that, along with his cute daughter Amanda, though I thought Robert handled it a [...]

    3. The Gift is totally different from Rhonda Hopkins' novels, but no less well-written and appealing in its own way.Children grow up fast, and this book would make a wonderful present to anyone who seems to think childhood will wait until this, that, or the other has been accomplished. Or buy it for yourself. It's a fun read, with twists, and it doesn't have to be Christmas to enjoy it.

    4. What a delightful short story by Rhonda Hopkins. Why am I not reading more of her books? I need to remedy that. This book will get you into the spirit of the Holidays. It will have you reevaluating your priorities. That is a good thing trust me. The best gift you can give your kids is your time. A wife presents her husband with the most wonderful gift of all, without him recognizing it as a gift from the heart. Ms. Hopkins is brilliant in the creation and delivery of this wonderful story. What w [...]

    5. I also had read this story as part of a collection, and am glad to see it solo, for those wanting just one short, but chock full of the holiday spirit.Rhonda's short is quite touching, in a very traditional family orientated way. Humorous and tearful in a very satisfying conclusion.My natural wariness led me to wonder, when I began her story, if this was going to be ho-hum predictable. And if someone is wondering if it's a happy ending tale, they're right. Getting there, though, was a nice mix o [...]

    6. This is a well-crafted and that is easy to see as a Hallmark Christmas movie. It does not tread (nor does it need to) on any uncharted ground, but is simply a good story that leaves you feeling warm when you finish.
