Book Review - THE GIFT by Andrea Merrell (1 free)
I'm so very proud of Andrea Merrell and her writing, providing The Gift, Volume One of our Christmases Past series. This short story will tug at your heartstrings, pull them tight, and then warm each strand to a mellow sweetness on the last page.
John and Hannah had experienced every parent's nightmare--the loss of their baby. Hannah has sunk into a silent depression. John mechanically goes through the necessities of each day, providing food to eat and a fire to keep them warm. He doesn't know how to reach his wife. She's lost in a world where he doesn't exist.
With a prayer in his heart, he decides to prepare their house for Christmas. Maybe memories of a joyful time will find their way through her darkness. He coaxes one smile, then two from her lips. It just might be a good Christmas.
He doesn't know just how good.
