Today I am reviewing An Endless Christmas — by Cynthia Ruchti.
Here is a brief synopsis:
An award-winning novelist’s heartwarming story about family and love lost, found, and finally truly revealed at Christmas.
Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement.
Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined.
Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last.
This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family.
But things go very wrong when she says “no.”
Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster.
But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it’s Christmas.
Heartwarming story of family and love lost, found, and finally revealed at Christmas… – Tweet this!
I LOVED IT! I LOVED IT! I LOVED IT!
Micah and Katie are now two of my favorite characters! They are both awesome people, even if Katie did turn down Micah’s proposal . . . on Christmas Eve.
I have a new all-time favorite Christmas story . . . An Endless Christmas
Not to offend other reviewers, but this is my review – and my opinion. And it did not start out slow. It wasn’t confusing. It wasn’t hokey.
It was, in fact, one of the best stories I’ve ever read.
Micah brings Katie “home” for Christmas; home – referring to his grandparent’s home, where his family always celebrates Christmas. But Micah has a secret . . . he plans to propose. As a matter of fact, he does propose – the moment they arrive, before Katie has even had time to hardly take a breath.
She says no.
Cynthia Ruchti excels at writing great novels . . . one would think if Katie’s boyfriend proposed the moment they arrived at his grandparent’s home — and Katie turned him down — that she would be sent back home.
Amazingly, Micah cares enough for her, to move past her refusal, and extend an invitation to stay over anyway, although Katie plans to leave as soon as she can make arrangements. In the meantime, the whole family joins in to make her feel welcome.
I. Love. An. Endless. Christmas.
What Katie learns from this experience, from Micah . . . from his family . . . makes for a delightful, heart-warming story that I will enjoy reading every Christmas. I hope my joy rubs off on you, so that you’ll read it for yourself.
Find it. Get it. Read it.
God Bless You!
