“Five women from different walks of life have become close friends through their book club–enjoying one another’s company even more than they enjoy the books. So when the leader of the book club unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the four remaining friends are stunned. They relied on Abby for inspiration and motivation. She was the glue that held them together, and they’re sure that without her the group can’t continue.
When the group gathers “one last time” to open a bag Abby’s husband gives them, they find Abby had made each of them an angel ornament for Christmas, crafted especially for each woman and accompanied by a sweet and personal note. Inspired by their beloved friend, together Cassidy, Louisa, Grace, and Belinda decide to commit themselves to becoming Christmas Angels to others in need. Each woman will use her life situation and talents to reach out and help others in her own unique way–little knowing that her own life and her relationships will be changed forever.”-book synopsis from Goodreads.com
This is such a lovely and uplifting book by Melody Carlson. It starts out very sad but it is not long before you just feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Although I read this in August, I felt the Christmas spirit. Reading this book at Christmas time might become part of my tradition to get me into the right mindset for the holiday.
This definitely has a Christian theme to it and draws you closer to God. I would re ommend this book to anybody. Anyone feeling down or unhappy would definitely benefit from this quick read.
