It’s nice at this time of year to curl up with a Christmas story and I thought I’d give this a try. The story of Pippa, Marianne and Cat who live in the little village of Hope Christmas and their entangled lives and respective families.
Pippa is a busy new mum struggling to juggle the guilt of being a working mum, Cat is struggling to identify with her wild daughter Mel and Pippa is trying to deal with the challenges of having respite care for her disabled daughter Lucy removed when her husband Dan has a terrible accident. Together they try to pull together and help each other through but it’s the strange new visitor in town who seems to be full of the best advice.
Set over the course of a year the book is a really nice read – not taxing, not going to win any literary awards but nice to curl up with on a cold winters night whilst you nurse a glass of wine and some nibbles….or is that just me
