Nostalgia At It’s Finest
The Christmas Diary by Elyse Douglas is a charming contemporary novel that will warm your heart and leave you smiling.
The novel is about truelove and real success. True love is deeper than romantic love. It goes straight into your heart and produces a strong urge to gather and protect. True love sacrifices. True love includes family. It is a love that lasts a lifetime and is not confined by time.
Success is measured in various ways. If your yardstick is fame and fortune, you will be indeed poor. True success is found in relationships with others. It is the love of others for us and us for others that reveals true success and riches.
The Christmas Diary has a wonderful atmosphere – love, warmth and snow all evoke feelings of nostalgia. The action is set in a small town that pulls together at all times. A warm welcome extends to strangers and reaches beyond the pages to the reader.
The characters are warm, well rounded and believable. The Christmas Diary is a perfect read to get you into the Christmas spirit. The Christmas spirit of peace and goodwill is not just for Christmas but for all year round.
This sounds like a perfect book to read as Christmas approaches. I would love to read it, so I will be adding it to my TBR list. Thank you so much for sharing your book review.
