Baby, It's Cold OutsideBy Susan May Warren
In my opinion, Ms. Warren really shines when she writes novels with a World War II setting, and this book is no exception. (Another outstanding example is 2010's Sons of Thunder.)
The characters in this book are struggling with the Christmas season, still grieving over the loss of loved ones. Haunted by the death of her son, Dottie Morgan has erected walls to shut out the past, but a blizzard forces her to open up her home and her heart to a new family. Filled with emotion, yet upbeat with joy and laughter, this book entertains and inspires at the same time.
Victorian home, blizzard, spiritual healing, broken relationships restored - all combine to make an enjoyable read for any time of year.
