An Endless Christmas by Cynthia Ruchti *Review

An Endless Christmas (Worthy Inspired, October 2015)
Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster.
Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined. Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very wrong when she says, “no.” Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it’s Christmas.

My Thoughts
Read it in one night, that is the beauty of a Novella! It wasn't too short, just the perfect length for a nice Christmas evening read. What a predicament to be in! Poor Katie and Micah, but such grace the family has. They aren't upset, or bothered by her refusal. They treat her like family and Micah's feelings haven't changed. They have such a peace about them. This family is what I pray mine will look like one day. All squeezed together in the house, enjoying each other for the holidays. Generations of the family together, celebrating the savior. It is a perfect representation of grace and the love of Christ. The family all learn from each other, and grow closer to one another just in the short time they are together. The family dynamics are just beautiful.
