A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman, Book review

Publisher: Summerside
ISBN-13: 978-1609366889


Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds. Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who’s preparing to spend the holidays alone…again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny’s farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she’s more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart—that sometimes love comes when you’re least ready for it.

Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?

My thoughts:

'Sometimes love comes when you least expect it,' 'A Merry Little Christmas' written by Anita Higman is the perfect read to start the Holiday Season! 
There is such a great feeling in holding this little hardback with its raised lettering! Too many publishers use the standard paperback approach and I must admit to enjoy the book even more for its presentation! 

Set in Oklahoma 1961, A Merry Little Christmas will put you in the mood for the many blessings this special upcoming Season is sure to bring. 
Franny is nothing but charming with her simple country approach to life as she opens her heart to all. She believes in her fellowmen and is not afraid to take a stand! Life has not always been easy for her and she has one dream...Move to the city and work in music perhaps at a radio station.

When city raised Charlie offers to buy her farm on condition she helps him to settle in and learn farming, Franny agrees and finds out all she wished for is nothing compared to what she already has...
Can you feel the magic of Christmas?...

Anita Higman writes with her heart and soul in this lovely story ready for you to discover! I found the simple storyline and its kind heart protagonists just the right touch to put me in the mood of the Season as I am sure you will too. 

There is a little of U.S. history in this novel, a reminder of things often forgotten and a few lessons as well. 
There is also much love and hope betwixt these pages and a touch of Heavenly promises as well. 

'A Merry Little Christmas' is a story to enjoy on a long winter night when all is quiet, with the children tucked in bed, and you are curled up in your favourite chair by the fire, a cuppa nearby as you will not want to put it down!

Finally, if you are looking for a good story to share with anyone, this is the perfect gift! There is nothing like God's blessings to remind us we are in His hands and Anita Higman is a delightful storyteller!

5 stars!
