Description

In the small town of Grandon, five very different people discover the true meaning of Christmas. Jennifer and Ryan are both single parents, struggling with their own losses and heartache as they attempt to move forward in the present while still holding onto the memories, joy, and heartache of the past. Sixteen-year-old Kaylee is faced with a life-changing situation that has affected her whole family. Stephen and Lily are happily married and ready to start a family. All of them are facing their own struggles, and all are finding their way through the dark. When they are brought together for a rather unconventional church Nativity, they will learn that with strength, courage, and love, there is always hope. The New York Times bestselling author of the beloved The Christmas Hope series returns with this new heartwarming, inspirational story about the power of love and faith to reveal the possibilities that lay right in front of you.

        The New York Times best-selling VanLiere offers another Christmas story, this one featuring five small-town characters brought together for a surprisingly different holiday. Jennifer and Ryan both struggle with single parenthood, teenage Kaylee has just had her life upended, and happily married Stephen and Lily look forward to starting a family.

        The eighth inspirational tale in VanLiere's "Christmas Hope" series (The Christmas Note) is full of heartache and promise. Jennifer and Ryan are single parents, each with a young daughter. When Ryan's Aunt Gloria and her friend Miriam are roped into staging the annual church Nativity play, they soon solicit family, friends, and strangers to participate, bringing Jennifer and Ryan together. Trying to overcome their painful pasts and find some holiday spirit will be a challenge, and they're not the only ones in town with difficult decisions to make. By Christmas, happy endings and beginnings are in sight. VERDICT Get out your handkerchiefs. VanLiere touchingly induces Christmas spirit and tears that will satisfy her many readers.
