Seven Christmases have passed since Sonia Pettit last heard from her daughter Jody. Since Jody’s departure, Sonia’s world has been turned upside down. Her husband has died of a broken heart, and her son, bitter over his sister’s destructive actions, has become rebellious.

Her greatest desire is to have her family together at Christmas, but after what Jody has put them all through, can Sonia truly forgive her daughter?

Jody Pettit O’Dair ran away to experience a life of adventure and excitement, but since her
departure, her world has been turned upside down. She’s been abandoned by the man she met and married, lost her job, and is unable to care for her two children. With nowhere else to turn, this prodigal daughter begins the long journey home and prays she will be welcomed after walking away so long ago.

Will Jody find forgiveness in the arms of her family as easily as she received it from God?
I used to dislike parallel story lines, but this one is nicely executed. Seeing the way the two ladies are currently living their lives and how they make it back to one another made the ending even more touching.

Definitely a lovely holiday read! I plan on keeping this copy for quite a few years to come.

I received this book free for review for a LitFuse Blog Tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
