A Beautiful Christmas Story

Christmas at Harrington's
By Melody Carson
What a caring, beautiful Christmas story , this was, from beginning to end.  Christmas is approaching  and the main character , Lena, finds herself penniless, with no job or hope for the future. Although she is trying to start a new life, jobs are scarce.  Worries abound.
When a kind stranger gives her what seems like a useless gift, she is finally able to land a job, only to find herself in another negative, seemingly hopeless situation.
Lena's faith keeps her going through many trials and challenges through the Christmas season- with the help of the kindness and caring of strangers-her angels in disguise.
Melody creates great feeling in this novel- of  empathy , hope and trust in others. Her characters become very real to the reader - I could NOT put this book down. What an inspirational read for this Christmas season!!  Thank you, Melody, for reminding me that the small things we do for others can form their future and help regain their faith in God.
