Always a delight to read Melody Carlson. I hope we all have angels watching over us and we are angels watching over others!

This was a delightful and heartwarming short story about second chances and forgiveness and told from a Christian perspective. Carlson is also the author of The Christmas Bus.

What a wonderful book! This is my first Melody Carlson book. I chose this book because it was Christmas themed, and it is Christmas time. It is relaxing, no hard-hitting climax, but still kept my attention, which makes it perfect to read by the fireplace, with your favourite blanket and a cup of steaming hot chocolate.

I always enjoy Melody Carlson's yearly Christmas novella. Within this story, the reader finds messages of redemption and hope.

Lena, a former pastor's wife, had been falsely accused of embezzlement and sent to prison. This story begins at her release from the correctional center and follows her struggles to begin life anew. A new town, a new job ... it should be fairly easy to start over, right? At first it appears to be so when she meets several new friends who are willing to look beyond her past and give her a chance. The other people at the boarding house are just as down on their luck as she is and the friendships she makes there bring her heart back to life. An older lady in town has taken Lena under her wing, much to her attorney son's disliking. Her new job isn't exactly what she had expected, but she blossoms as she takes on the role of Mrs. Santa. When a former church member recognizes her and causes Lena trouble, things quickly turn disastrous.
