Every year I look forward to Melody Carlson’s new Christmas novella. This year’s, The Christmas Blessing, is historical set in the 1940’s. It is about Amelia Richards who finds out that her baby’s father, James, was shot down somewhere in the South Pacific. Amelia struggles as a single mother of a new baby and sets out to find James’ parents. Problems arise for Amelia since they don’t know about her or the baby.

As always Melody Carlson’s characters are characters that you can root for and relate to. Even though this is a short novella there is still some growth and you can still feel like you know them. This is a good quick read that is sure to get you in the Christmas spirit.

I received this book from Revell. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
