A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom Review and a Giveaway
Tragedy brings heartache to the community of Apple Blossom. A car takes the life of 6-year-old Mary Noel Simmons’s best friend—her dog—and nearly destroys Mary Noel’s spirit as well. Now she lies in the hospital, traumatized and silent, while the medical bills are piling up with no way for her parents to pay them.
That is, until Mary Noel’s teacher, Amber Kellen, breaks out of her quiet, lonely life to help.
With the help of her new friend Paul, Amber sets out to solve the family’s financial problems by involving the entire community. And as the two friends work together, they discover that creating a Christmas miracle may also have some unexpected benefits. Filled with romance and kindness, this story of hope and faith will warm your heart.
My thoughts: Normally, I am not really a fan of novellas, since I like more character development then most offer. I'm glad that I didn't let that stop me from picking this book up! This story is a sweet tale of a holiday miracle that takes place in a small town, after tragedy has struck. As the town pulls together to help cover the bills of poor Mary Noel, love blossoms for her kind teacher. This story is filled with some surprising depth! I feel in love with the characters and their quaint town.
I reviewed this book for Cedar Fort and they have generously donated a copy of this novella (in e-book format) for one lucky winner.
