An Apple for Christmas

An Apple for Christmas by Darlene Franklin

Ruby Nelson trades her job in the laboratory for teaching in a small girls’ school in Vermont. Twin sisters challenge her position—and their father captivates her imagination. Will the orchard grower graft Ruby onto his heart?


An Apple for Christmas is a wonderful novella! Darlene Franklin has penned a story as sweet and delicious as the apples she has written about. The endearing characters delighted and charmed me, as did the engaging storyline!

I loved An Apple for Christmas and I highly recommend this novella!

    I absolutely love Christmas novels and novellas. I couldn’t think of a better way to usher in the Christmas season. I began reading some Christmas novellas late September when we were staying in a lodge. It was just lovely. Darlene’s story sounds wonderful. 🙂

      This group of novellas is a grand way to get in the Christmas spirit. I hope you get to read mine.
