On the way to Christmas with his family, Micah asks Katie to marry him. She says no, but there is no getting out of Christmas now. The Binder family celebrates every Christmas as if it were their last. 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.
About The Author
Taking multi-tasking to new heights (or depths, depending on your perspective), Cynthia Ruchti is the award-winning author of recent releases “All My Belongings” (novel), “When the Morning Glory Blooms” (novel), and “Ragged Hope: Surviving the Fallout of Other People’s Choices” (nonfiction). She makes potato corn chowder for her husband of 42 years, loves on her three kids and five grandchildren, recently retired from 33 years of writing and producing a daily radio broadcast called THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME, is past president of the 2,700-member American Christian Fiction Writers and now serves as ACFW’s Professional Relations Liaison, all while working on more book projects in addition to the eight already on the shelves. The year 2010 saw the release of her debut novel–“They Almost Always Come Home” by Abingdon Press (a Carol Award finalist)–and a Christmas collection novella, “The Heart’s Harbor” in A Door County Christmas, a Family Fiction Reader’s Choice, by Barbour Publishing. “His Grace is Sufficient…Decaf is Not,” released Nov 1, 2011. Another novella collection–“Cedar Creek Seasons” (Barbour) released in spring of 2012. “When the Morning Glory Blooms” (April 2013) was followed by “All My Belongings” (2014, also from Abingdon Press). Her books have recently been honored with two Selah Awards, two Christian Retailing’s BEST Awards, and awards from CAN Golden Scrolls and AWSA Golden Scrolls. She tells stories of Hope-that-glows-in-the-dark through writing and speaking, but she gave up knitting, counted cross-stitch, sewing her own clothes, naps, and dusting baseboards a long time ago. You can find her at http://www.cynthiaruchti.com at http://www.facebook.com/cynthiaruchtireaderpage or in the kitchen, brewing herself another cup of tea.
This charming novella just screams to be made into a Hallmark Holiday Movie, and I truly hope a producer pays attention to this sweet book. Are you looking for a perfect hostess gift for Thanksgiving to usher in the holiday season? Look no further.
The plot is uncomplicated and romantic, cheering for love throughout the short afternoon I took to read this book. The characters are well written, uniquely developed, with a message of hope and heart, two traits we should always follow.
I recommend this book to read this holiday season. Brew a cup of holiday tea, burn a spicy candle, and settle in with an afghan to begin your treck into the lives of honest folk who are seeking love. You will enjoy every page.
