Dottie Morgan has no desire to share her home or her heart over the Christmas holidays. After all, her Christmas spirit froze over when Dottie lost her son in World War II. But when a blizzard of the decade traps Dottie in her home with four near strangers, she just might discover that opening her door might also open her heart to a Christmas miracle and a new reason to celebrate Christmas.
Dottie has a life of regrets and a loss of faith over the death of her only son during World War 2. Gordy has always loved her from afar. Violet and Jake must learn to trust one another and little Arnie is lonely and lost in his imaginary world of Flash Gordon. When a sudden blizzard brings them all together in Dottie's house, she's not sure she can handle the emotions that begin to come forth. But, as each life touches the others, hearts are opened and feelings shared and a Christmas miracle brings them all home.
What a sweet story about faith and forgiveness. Dottie was a bit prickly, but she really grew on me as her heart softened and she discovered herself again. These are characters who you come to love and care for and this book is a perfect way to start off the holiday season.
