The Christmas Blessing is a quick but very emotionally engaging read set in the anxiety and pain of those left behind during World War II.

The Christmas Blessing is told with Melody Carlson's dependable gentleness and grace. Ms. Carlson has a wide range to that gentleness and grace: from faith-filled women, to good humor, romance and sometimes challenging "blessings" as in The Christmas Blessing.

Read it now and you will be warm for the entire Christmas season.
