A historical town dressed in the spirit of the time, a hero and heroine long lost to each other and young and mischievous eight year old twins, what more would you need to make a wonderful Christmas story? These elements plus even more make it meaningful and fun.
Friendship plays a big part in the story too. Holly and Shirley work together as waitresses in a colonial style inn. They each have the others back. Holly is a Christian and a widow with twin boys. Shirley is single and a non-believer but God finds a way to work in both their lives.
I loved the author’s description of Williamsburg and all the scenery and Christmas decorations. It made me want to visit there, especially during the holiday season.
There’s plenty of evidence too that God always has better plans for our lives than we could ever imagine for ourselves.
It was set in the year 1955, and although the use of slang words were prevalent at that time, I personally think there was a little over use of them. But that’s just my humble opinion and my only negative thought about this entertaining novella.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
