Mistletoe Melody by Stacey Weeks is such a delightful, tender hearted Christian Christmas tale that warms the reader from the start. We are quickly enveloped in the Christmas traditions and atmosphere that will ignite the festive spirit in us all.
The novel requires tissues as it focuses on multiple sclerosis and childhood strokes. Both are difficult topics but sensitively and lovingly portrayed. “God never promised her fair, He promised Himself.” What a powerful statement. God is faithful in the good and the bad times. There are “two broken women singing tentative praises to the God who gives and takes away.” We are to praise God in the valley and the storms as well as on the mountaintop.
Life is not always easy. At times we find ourselves far from God. “Her struggle to celebrate a Saviour whose presence she didn’t feel.” If we feel far from God, it does not mean that He is far from us. God is closer than we think and as near as we want Him to be. It is never too late to return to God. “It’s only ever one step back to God.”
Mistletoe Melody is so delightful. It will warm your heart and soul, bring a tear to your eye and leave you smiling knowing that God is faithful and will never leave us nor forsake us.

Thank you for your lovely review. It is so encouraging to read. Have a great Christmas!
As Christmas draws near, there are some who don’t look forward to the celebration because of hardship. Based on your review, this sweet tale weaves the promise of God’s presence into the hearts of those dealing with difficulty and gives the reader hope. Amen!
Congrats on the lovely review, Stacey. Good luck with your new book!
How brave you were to write this story on your heart.
