Christmas Roses: A Review
It’s a beautiful thing to sit down on a cold night with a cup of hot chocolate in front of the fire. With a fuzzy blanket. And a nice husband – who also wants to be non-social . . . and read a book.
On such a night I read the book, Christmas Roses, by Amanda Cabot.
Sometimes we as humans have a tendency to ask God for a miracle. But God often uses the ordinary to answer our wish or heart’s desire.
Main character, Celia Anderson, owned a boarding house. A traveling carpenter found his lodgings in her house. Over time, this stranger became a friend, often helping with things around the house and becoming a fire side companion.
Celia had a wish – a dream – and quite frankly was asking for a miracle. She wanted the next man that she loved to bring her roses for Christmas. At that period in history, this present would have been impossible. However, a certain carpenter made Celia’s wish come true.
My copy of Christmas Roses was provided by Revell. I was not paid for this post and all opinions are mine. I would recommend this book if you are looking for a sweet story that is a one night read.
