A Christmas In The Alps by Melody Carlson is a most delightful contemporary Christian festive read. Every year Melody Carlson releases a new Christmas book which I eagerly look forward to and greedily devour.
The setting of Paris followed by the snow-covered Alps warms the reader’s soul. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and perfectly complemented by the crisp cold air outside. Melody Carlson has captured the essence of Christmas in a book.
A character is searching for her inheritance and her history. She discovers that riches turn up in the most unexpected places. As she relentlessly searches, the reader is reminded that God passionately pursues us as He longs to bring us home.
Family rifts and feuds need putting to bed. Life is too short to live with self-erected barriers between us.
Once again Melody Carlson has produced a wonderful festive offering. I love her annual book release that is full of warmth and love.
I will leave you with my favourite quote:
“What helps me most when I am anxious… It’s prayer. I find that when I hand these troubles over to God, I start to relax. I trust Him for the outcome.”
I received a free copy via Net Galley. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
