    On Christmas Eve twenty years earlier, Marlee and Jacob were married in a snowstorm. This Christmas Eve, they are ready to quit, and divorce is imminent. Their relationship is as icy as the road they're traveling and as blocked with troubles as the piling snow. They take a shortcut to get to the lawyer's office, on a slippery, no-fault path. She thinks they need to stay on the main road. He disagrees. They fight. Story of their lives and they slam into a bank of snow , spinning, drifting, falling, out of control. Just like their lives. Reluctantly, freezing cold, hungry, scared, she trudges up the hill. Jacob is nowhere to be found. Her ears frozen, fingers and hands red, she comes to a house on the hillside, built like a Bed and Breakfast, a green wreath on the red door and the door-knocker is in the shape of a wedding ring.

    The red door opens and the first thing she notices is the fire in the room, blazing hot, a warm, inviting, friendly place and the voice of an old man welcomes her in. There are three golden pots on the hearth, shining, glimmering things. The old man claims that they are used to restore marriages. She laughs-and begins a journey through her past, present, and future that will test how she views her lifelong love. There are two futures available. Which will she choose?

    My Review:

    My only complaint about this novel is that it's too short!! It was such a good little book that I hated how it ended so soon. This was a beautiful picture of how marriage can become stagnant, and what it takes to restore it to it's former glory. This story is proof that it is never too late for love, and that it is never too late to change your future.

    Marlee and Jacob are two people I wish were real, that I could talk to and go to for advice. They took something that was broken and looked to God to help them through the hard times. They came out victors for it, and the Lord blessed their efforts. I do wish there would have been a few more pages so we could have gotten Jacob's perspective on what was happening, but the writers did a good job of giving Marlee a voice. A sweet little Christmas novel that will encourage you and aspire you to better all your relationships.

    This review was written for A Marriage Carol.
    I bought "A Marriage Carol" as an e-book, ie. I would not lose much money if it is not a good read. Was I wrong! This is a worthy read and I would like to have a 'real' copy on my bookshelf soon, right next to the love languages book.

    This review was written for A Marriage Carol.
    Marlee and Jacob have had it with their marriage. The final paperwork for the end of their marriage will be signed on Christmas Eve and while driving to that destination in the middle of a freak Christmas Eve blizzard, an accident leads to Marlee's journey.

    This delightful spin on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol takes the reader on a journey though Marlee's past, present and possible futures. We see how love starts, how it can grow (both together and apart) and how the choices we make pile up like snowflakes.

    Can man truly say when a marriage is over? What about God's opinion? Doesn't he have a say in the matter?

    Now, I know I can't throw much weight around as I'm not married. Have never been and there a chance I may never be. And that's okay. I can still be an advocate for it and believe in what it stands for.

    I found this read to be delightful, insightful, touching and even healing in my own life. Gary Chapman and Chris Fabry did an excellent job in piecing together Marlee's story and how choices can destroy or improve one's life. If it doesn't make the reader consider the choices they've made in their own life, something is wrong. There is always room for improvement, married or not. There is power in small choices. There is hope, especially when one person turns toward another and begins to see them as valuable rather than focusing on the self all the time.

    I urge you to pick up a copy of A Marriage Carol, whether at a store or rented from your local library (as I did_trust me, the waiting list is long). You will not be disappointed!

    This review was written for A Marriage Carol.
    Maralee and Jacob have had it with their marriage. The final paperwork for the end will be signed on Christmas Eve.

    While driving to their destination the snow falls heavily and the roads are getting very slippery. Jacob decides to take a shortcut through a mountain pass and this is where Maralee's journey begins.

    Can man/woman say when a marriage is over? What about God?

    I found this book to be very insightful, touching, and healing. If it doesn't make you think about your own marriage something is wrong. There is always room for improvement. A gentler kinder voice, uplifting words, a praise or two when due, maybe even a loving touch.

    If you are reading this review, I urge you to pick up a copy of A Marriage Carol. You will not be disappointed!
