A Lancaster Count Christmas By Suzanne Woods Fisher

What can I say? I just enjoy a book that is that is well written, easy and  fast to read. I have been in a funk lately as most of you know form reading my book reviews. I just am having a hard time getting into books. I really don't know why but I am. 

Back tot he book~

Jaime and C. J. Fitzpatrick began their married life as most couples do--in love and looking forward to a bright future together. But four years later they've drifted apart and are almost ready to call it quits.

Mattie Riehl was hoping to give her husband Sol the Christmas gift they have both longed for--news that a baby was on the way. But as usual, she is disappointed. The holidays bring an acute awareness to Mattie that her dream of a big family isn't likely to become a reality.

Then a winter storm raging outside blows the Fitzpatricks into the Riehl home--and into a much slower pace of life. Can these two couples from different worlds help each other understand the true meaning of love this Christmas?

With her trademark plot twists and attention to detail, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers readers a beautiful Christmas story of love, forgiveness, and what truly matters in life.

My Thoughts~
As I started reading this book, my heart but melted and the grief came over me. I could feel that characters pain. Each character has his or her own pain. I could connect with each one of them. My heart could really understand both women's pain. My questions would be is why C. J. would allow someone to screw him over. I know that he was trying to keep the peace. But at what coast? Loosing his wife? I am glad that she made the choice that she did in the end and that life moved on. I wish I could learn what happens next with these two families. Do they stay friends? Do they each have more or a child(ren)? I can't wait to see what Suzanne Woods Fisher comes out with next.

Thank you to Suzanne Woods Fisher for her writing abilities, LitFuse, and Revell Publishers.
