Review: The Christmas Blessing by Melody Carlson



About the book:
She's determined to give her baby a better life.
Could a Christmas miracle make it possible?


Not long after she receives the news in 1944 that her baby's father was shot down in the South Pacific, Amelia Richards loses hope. Jobless and broke, she has nowhere to turn for help but her infant's paternal grandparents. The only problem is, they don't know that she--or their grandson--exists.

When Amelia discovers the family is wealthy and influential, dare she disclose the truth of her relationship with their son? Or could the celebration of the arrival of another unexpected baby nearly two thousand years ago be the answer to her dilemma?

My thoughts:

The Christmas Blessing was a pleasant surprise. Carlson's books are usually light reads that I enjoy but don't love; The Christmas Blessing was different because I absolutely loved it! What a sweet story set around WW2.

I liked the characters and really felt for the heroine. I kept hoping for a Happily Ever After ending, even though it looked like that wouldn't be possible. I won't say how the book ended, but there was definitely closure and I think it ended well. All in all, I loved The Christmas Blessing and recommend it!
