BLURB:

Hopeful that the back left tire on his truck will hold, Jack Branson begins the last leg of his long journey, desperate to reach his family’s farm and surprise them on Christmas Eve. Nature, though, has other plans for the returning serviceman this snow-filled Christmas. Needing to find shelter, he spots the glow of lights from a small farmhouse and seeks sanctuary from those within. But then, the worn door opens, and… The slim fingers of Dortha Hudson’s right hand twist the gold band around the ring finger on her left one, as she ponders the decision she must now make. The past four years have been hard ones. Does that mean she should settle for an easy way out, or should she hope for a Christmas miracle? So begins this latest offering from internationally beloved, From Women’s Pens author Annie Acorn. Set in rural, post-World War II Indiana, her new novella draws on memories of childhood Christmases as she recounts the story of characters destined to delight her eager readership. Settle yourself into a comfortable chair by the fireplace, sip on a cup of spiced tea, and nibble a gingerbread cookie as you wrap yourself in the love, laughter, family warmth, romance and second chances of an Annie Acorn Christmas. This one you’ll reread every holiday season!

MY REVIEW:

A refreshing short read (42 pages) of hope and love. Adds to the Christmas spirit with the winter snow storm, warm and cozy setting, Heartwarming story centered around a chance meeting of a widow and a stranded serviceman returning home from WWII on Christmas Eve. A feel-good innocent read.
