Today I’m reviewing Somehow, Christmas Will Come by Peggy Blann Phifer.
Here is a brief synopsis from Goodreads:
When Molly Dugan’s best friend gets married and leaves St. Paul, Minnesota, to live in Georgia, Molly feels alone and plans a visit to her brother, Patrick, in Las Vegas.
Molly had been worried about him ever since his wife died in a tragic boating accident.
Grieving she could understand, but she sensed something deeper going on. And she was concerned about Patrick’s six-year-old daughter, Bethany.
So she sets aside her life in St. Paul to spend an indeterminate time in Vegas.
When Molly gets there, she finds more than she bargained on. And in the lead-up to Christmas, the situation only gets worse…. 6 year-old Bethany loses her last anchor.
How does Molly convince her that somehow, Christmas will come.
This is a great Christmas story!
If you get emotional like I do, have a box of tissues nearby when you read it; the author does a great job showing how Molly and her family deal with tragedy.
I’ll be honest; I never saw the second tragedy coming…
This is very similar to the Christmas stories that have you sobbing — just before the characters begin adjusting to it all — and life goes on.
If you’re looking for a good Christmas read this month, this would be a good choice.
You can purchase this in ebook format right now… and begin reading for yourself.
I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
