A Christmas Homecoming - MaryAnn Diorio

About A Christmas Homecoming

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? 

My thoughts...
What a great and fast read!  I love books I can cuddle up with and read in one sitting, either from the length of the book, or from the excellent writing.  This book was both!  While I have to admit, reading this story at this time of year surrounded by my Christmas decorations helped me get more in the festive mood, I truly think I would have enjoyed reading this at any time of year!

If you're looking for a quick gift for a friend, co-worker, boss, or relative, this would be an excellent choice!  And guess what?  The kindle version is only $.99 on Amazon!  What a deal!  Head over here to purchase it!  

I give this book 5 Christmas Stars!
