What I Thought About This Novel

This novel is defiantly a page-turner. The storyline is easy to follow and it not easy to predict what will happen next this is what I liked most in this novel.

This book will definitely get you in the mood for Christmas a must read during Christmas time.

I also like the characters that the author used in this novel she made them alive by telling a real story which relates to normal people.

This novel also teaches a lesson on togetherness during Christmas time and how important family and friends are during this time of the year.

I liked Jim as a character he has been through a lot in his life and yet is very kind, patient and forgiving.

This is my first read for a novel written by Carole Matthews and yet it has left me yearning to read more novels from her. I am definitely looking forward to reading some of her novels.

This novel will make you realise how blessed you are to have people you call family or friends as there are other people out there who are not so privileged.

This novel is very easy to read. The novel cover is so beautiful it is the one that drew me into picking up this novel and wanting to read it.


I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes to read a novel with a Christmas theme idea. It can also be bought a special Christmas gift for someone who likes to read books.
