Review: Evergreen by Susan May Warren


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J37IGL6?ie=UTF8&camp=213733&creative=393177&creativeASIN=B00J37IGL6&linkCode=shr&tag=chrisbooksrev-20&linkId=XTK7FR7BI5GPNR5M&sr=1-6&qid=1404256431
About the book:
An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, couldn’t be more excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned. He’s sure she’ll love it. What’s more romantic than Christmas in Paris?

Before he can stop her, however, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their faithful dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And then—because disasters strike in threes—an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts.

As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods into a winter wonderland, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid’s marriage. With the holidays fast approaching, their only hope of keeping their love evergreen depends on turning the page on the past and embracing a new chapter of their future.

My thoughts:

Evergreen is a new and moving novella in the Christiansen Family series about Ingrid and John, the parents of the Christiansen clan. The book showcases some of the struggles married couples go through, especially when they've been married for decades.

I really loved this story and how we got to see all the changes going on in their lives. I was surprised, happy, and even teary-eyed because of things that happened. This book just makes me even more excited about the fourth book in this series, Always On My Mind. I can't wait to read Casper's book!

Overall, Evergreen was a great read and I highly recommend it!
