Remembering Christmas is the third book by Dan Walsh that I have read, and by far the best in my opinion. I loved the characters. The story resounded well with me, and I never lost interest. (In fact, I’m hoping for a sequel so we can learn more about the time in between the two parts of the story told in the book.)
The story follows a man who has grown up, moved away from home and decided there is nothing he misses from his childhood. When his stepfather almost dies and has to spend weeks in the hospital, Rick is forced to come home and run his parents small Christian bookstore. In the process, he finds he is drawn to the single mom he works with at the store and he is more than surprised at what his mother and stepfather have not told him about life and their little bookstore.
If you want to get in the mood for Christmas – and you don’t want it to be all about Santa and reindeer – Remembering Christmas is a great way to usher in the season.
If you know someone who likes to read, this would also make a great gift. I would have been quite pleased to find this under my tree.
