Another Great Christmas Book!!

One thing I look forward to every Christmas season is the newest Donna VanLiere book. This lady knows how to write a story. Her books are easy to read and always have a few twists in the plot. Just when you think you know how the book is going to end, she throws in a surprise. You can check out her website here.

Can two very different women embark on a journey that explores a long-buried need for forgiveness, hope, and redemption?

That question gets answered as the lives of these two woman unfold and intertwine. This book explores how just a little attention can make a huge difference in someone's life. One of the main characters describes herself like this:

~"I've always felt there are two women inside me: one who is desperate, drowning, and clinging to anything that can float and the other woman who feels the depth of loss and the hope of beauty and is always searching for the marvelous to spring up out of the gray. That woman rarely shows up, it seems."

It is this character who ends up full of hope and forgiveness. What a powerful lesson this book teaches us, not just for Christmas, but for everyday life!
