Another Holiday book to add… December 23, 2009

Posted by Donna in Gentle Read, Holiday Books, Thoughtful Ramblings.

   I wasn’t able to attend the Holiday book discussion but I wanted to share the holiday book that I recently finished. Be prepared…it’s a crier but it is also filled with faith, love, friendship, laughs and wonderful memories along with the tears that may flow by the end of the story. This is a beautiful story that I will add to my collection to treasure. Isn’t that what a great Holiday book should be? This one is perfect to share…the Christmas Cake by Lynne Hinton, a sequel to her earlier book, The Friendship Cake.

published in 2000. (I laughed and cried through that one too and have looked since then for another book by this author featuring these wonderful women.)

     The four members of the Women’s Guild of the Hope Springs Community Church are once again planning to make a new cookbook with a Christmas cake recipe contest. However, no one is in a festive mood since Margaret’s cancer has returned. To try to cheer everyone up, Beatrice plans an impromptu journey for Margaret and the others to visit to visit her hometown in Texas and their friend and former pastor, Charlotte Stewart, who now runs a battered women’s shelter in Texas. This story once again confirms that true friendship is one of the best gifts of all to give!

 Season’s readings!       ~ Donna
