And I was not disappointed. Jodi Thomas has truly assembled three stories of love and hope. Each story, whether it was about ranchers trying to save the family ranch, a school teacher helping a stranger, or the connection between man and dog, each have a similar thread woven between them: love. These characters are examples of the hope we need in our everyday lives, but that become most apparent during the Christmas/winter months. Each story has a lasting feeling of love that will keep the reader warm throughout the year, not just at Christmas time.
I recommend this read to anyone who might feel a bit blue during the winter months, and could use a reminder of hope. I recommend this read to all readers who would like a some sunshine during the darker days.
