Genre: Fiction – Christmas
Nothing is more beautiful than family
For the very first time, Judith and Stan Winters spend Thanksgiving without the kids and it looks like Christmas will be the same. Normally the kids help decorate the house for Christmas, especially the tree. Every year the children would hang up their favorite ornaments. Some of them were strange looking while some were just downright ugly. However, Judith just can’t seem to decorate this year, let alone get into the Christmas spirit.
This is a light read and I appreciate how Dan Walsh shows that not everyone is cheerful about the holidays. Christmastime can make people feel very lonely and depressed, especially if they’re used to things being a certain way. Sometimes all people need is figuring out a way to start new traditions. For those of us who aren’t hurting this holiday season, I hope this will encourage you to show others around you that you care. If you enjoy cheesy Hallmark movies, then you’ll probably love this one. I also loved that it takes place in Florida in a small little town called Mount Dora.
