Cottage By The Sea by Debbie Macomber is the most delightful contemporary romance. I always know that when I pick up a Debbie Macomber novel that my heart will be warmed and I will be left smiling.
The novel is about loss. A loss so great that it consumes and takes over. “The grief and regret weighed her down.” We all feel regret and guilt when someone dies. We need to forgive ourselves for the things we did or didn’t say. We need to live our lives guilt free or the burden will break us.
Recovering from a loss takes time. Life will never be the same again. The novel explores the theme of finding a place that makes us feel happy so we can surround ourselves with happy memories and begin to heal.
Changing The World One At A Time
Twelve Days Of Christmas by Debbie Macomber is a wonderful contemporary romance. It will warm your heart as you read.
The novel has a real feel good factor. It is a light read with some wonderfully humorous and witty dialogue. ” ‘God save me from stubborn women.’ ‘Pray harder.’ ”
There is the theme of kindness running throughout. Kindness is often glossed over but it has the potential to change the world one person at a time. Kindness changes both the giver and receiver. It has a rippling effect. We would all be wise to practice kindness everywhere we go.
