On a snowy Christmas Eve, their anniversary, Marlee and Jacob take a treacherous drive to sign papers signaling the end. Tired of fighting, tired of the pain, and no passion left, they have chosen to end their marriage. But a shortcut over an icy mountain pass brings Marlee into a collision with her life. Visions of the past haunt; images of the present and future make her wonder if they have chosen the best course.
With a nod toward Dickens and a heaping helping of truth from bestselling author Dr. Gary Chapman, this surprising tale will take you through twists and turns and lead you on a journey into the power of snow. If your heart needs rekindling, if you long for unconditional love, this story will bring warmth and hope.
Chris Fabry and marriage expert Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages, team up to present a Christmas novella offering hope for struggling marriages. The book was released in the fall of 2011 and was named a finalist for Christian Retailing magazine's 2012 Retailers Choice Award in the Fiction: Contemporary Romance category.
I highly recommend this and would give twice the stars if I could.
I very much enjoyed this retelling of a favorite Christmas story. It is a wonderful reminder of how important our marriage commitments are, not only to each other, but to those closest to us. In this aspect Gary Chapman’s voice shines thru.
Clever interpretation of the holiday classic with the amazing Five Love Languages concept woven throughout the storyline! I recommend the audiobook version read by the author!
