Arson wasn't the only fire that ignited between them.
Promises shattered.
Lies spoken.
She was arrested.
He returned to the safety of his wealthy parents.
Almost ten years later, Hadley and Monroe are both specialists in the field of speech therapy. They meet again . . . thrown together to help a four-year-old-girl rendered mute after being rescued from a fire.
Years of secrets and anger beg to be set free as Hadley and Monroe try to push aside past hurts and find common ground in order to help the traumatized child and her family.
Can the love of Christmas past drift into the present, bringing healing and hope for all?
My Thoughts:
The Gift of Christmas Past was a sweet and enjoyable read from mother/daughter team, Cindy and Erin Woodsmall.  While I enjoyed this quick and easy read, the story didn't flow smoothly and I felt I was missing details along the way.  I would have appreciated more depth in the characters as well.  But with that said, the story gives you a glimpse into the journey of young sweethearts and the power of forgiveness.  The ending is really inspiring as well.
*I was given a complimentary copy of the book.  All opinions are my own.

Happy Reading,
