It’s a beautiful day here in Cincinnati! No rain and lots of sunshine plus it’s warmer than it has been this past week. I’m happy to say that I received another review on Amazon for my book, A CHRISTMAS GIFT! I especially like the reviewer’s comment about my character Debby reminding her of the wonderful Anne of Green Gables. I loved Anne! One cold and snowy winter when we were inside a lot, we enjoyed watching the movie, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Be sure to check out the reviewer, Laurean Brooks’ own wonderful book, JOURNEY TO FORGIVENESS and visit Laurie on her blog!
By Laurean Brooks “Laurie” “Laurean Brooks” (Dukedom, TN) - A Christmas Gift (Paperback)
Debby Reeves sees something she isn’t suppose to. What did her dad shove into the cabinet drawer beneath the kitchen towels? When Debby finds out, she is puzzled. Should she tell her sisters…her mother? Can she solve the shameful secret her father is trying to conceal?
I love the way Diane Craver has captured this little girl’s personality. She knows how to get inside the head of a seven-year-old and make her bigger than life. Debby Reeves is saucy, smart, courageous, and loves her family. She is on a mission and will not give up. The little girl reminds me of “Anne” in “Anne of Green Gables.” She always has an answer for everything. I laughed out loud in several places, especially at little Debby’s thoughts about her selfish paternal grandmother.
Ms. Craver has a gift for pulling the reader into the family scenes. I felt like I knew Debby and her entire family before long. I rooted for all of them, each with their own diverse personalities.
“A Christmas Gift” would make a wonderful Christmas gift to anyone who enjoys a heartwarming story of courage, persistence, and loves close-knit, realistic family scenes.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to more by this author.
