A Marriage Carol
Chris Fabry & Gary Chapman
Published by Moody
We all know the traditional Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, remade into a variety of different movie versions from Muppets to Jim Carey. But what happens when you take the Christmas Carol concept and apply it to marriage.
Introducing Marlee and Jacob Ebenezer (of course), married 20 years, deciding to call it quits on their marriage that slowly has been dieing. They are on their way to sign papers of divorce when they have a car accident in the blizzard like conditions. When Marlee awakes, Jacob is gone and she goes in search of him, finds a cabin in the woods and meets Jay and his wife.
Jay has a way with words and insights and shares a magical snow with Marlee that allows her to see her past, present and future options.
Beautifully written Christmas story of really taking into account what we have been given and not taking it for granted. Gives the reader a glimpse of what our path could be like if we don’t stay the course in our marriages. For those hurting in their marriages, and those who have had the longevity it is a darling story of forgiveness and redemption, bringing to fruition all that God brought us on that first Christmas morning.
I received a copy of this book from Moody in exchange for an honest review.
