Book Review: The Gift



The Gift by Nora Roberts

It occured to me the other day that Christmas is only SIX weeks away, and as such, it was time to start getting in the spirit of things - at least in the book world. :-)

I haven't read many Christmas novels (or novellas, usually) so I thought I would give it a good shot this year, and had several recommended by our Bookmobile Lady, the first being The Gift, which is actually two shorter stories in one novella.

If you've read any Nora Roberts, this book is little different - conflict, romance and resolution - but with a Christmas backdrop. The first story was very nice, but I much preferred the second...when two little boys wish for a mom (and bikes!) for Christmas, and a wife for their dad.

Very sweet start to the holiday season!
