Publisher's Description

Can Clayton Barlow prove he has changed his ways in time for Christmas?

 
It is October 1898, and Clayton Barlow has just returned home after serving time in prison for his part in a bank robbery. His family welcomes him, but the townspeople are skeptical. Bored with life in the small town but determined to make a new start, he goes to work with his father, hoping to regain the town’s trust. 
 
Clayton recognizes the schoolteacher at the Prairie Grove School as his childhood friend, Merry Lee Warner, and old feelings surface. Still, he doubts that he could ever get a woman like Merry to love him.
 
As the townspeople prepare for Christmas, their suspicions about Clayton lead to trouble. Will the trusting heart of an unlikely new friend be enough to restore Clayton’s relationships with his neighbors and reunite him with God and Merry?

    This book was the best of the Christmas reads I purchased this year. Suspence along with frustration and finally romance. A book that is hard to put down. Leaves you wanting more of the story when you are done.

    Clayton Barlow arrives at his Father's store not sure what kind of welcome if any he will receive. You see he has been in prison for the past five years of his life for bank robbery.

    To his surprise and great pleasure his parent's welcomed him back with open arms. His father did advise him to keep on the straight and narrow and stay away from bad company.

    But not everyone was as glad to see him back home. When Merry Lee Warner, the new Prairie Grove school teacher caught sight of Clayton standing in the door of his father's store she ran to him throwing her arms around him. Merry was his sweetheart when she was sixteen years old. But he must not let on how much he is still in love with her for fear of destroying her reputation with the school board. He has to prove to this community that he is a changed man before he let's her know how he really feels. If not he might have to leave town.

    Merry was so glad to see him but he did not seem to have the same feelings. This really hurt and confused her. She would not give up, she would come and talk to him everyday until she figured out where her school sweetheart was under this man's tough exterior.

    Has Clayton turned his life around? Does he trust God enough to ask for help? He feels as if God had turned His back on him when he went to prison.

    Many of us feel at times that God may have abandoned us when in reality we abandoned Him. God is constant He never leaves us. Clayton's character learned this lesson the hard way and then God Blessed Clayton Abundantly with a Very Merry Christmas.

    Martha always entertains me with her writing. The characters are bold, heroic, soldiers of God ready to do his bidding. I always come away feeling as if I have learned a great lesson after reading one of her books.

    I highly recommend this book.

    I always like to read anything Martha Rogers writes and I love Christmas stories anytime of year so this is the perfect book for me.

    As I start the story Clay Barlow had just gotten out of prison and returned home to Prairie Grove Kansas in the year 1898. He had served his time for bank robbery and did not know what he was going to do with his life now and what type of job would he be able to get.

    His own Dad had turned him in about the bank robbery and was surprised that both his parents had forgiven him for this deed. They both opened their arms wide to him as in the Bible story of the prodigy son. But a lot of people in the town were not happy at all to see him come home. But he finds himself back with Merry Warner and all feeling for her was returning. Can the town forgive him or will they always hold this mistake against him?

    But when the gang he had been a member of shows back up in town will he rejoin them or will he find this would get him into trouble again. Should he risk his life to help rescue a young girl they were holding captive and was being mistreated, would he find himself back in prison or worst dead.

    This is a good Christmas read and you will find the story will keep you turning page after page.

    Thanks so much to Charisma House for sending me this book for my review.

    You think you got problems! This book will encourage you. Clayton deals with being an ex-con, Merry Warner still loves him even though her Dad was a sheriff, and Lily turns out to be in trouble. Poor 4 year old Jonathan loses his family when their house burns.

    The judgemental status of some in church still happens today and not just to ex-cons. It happens to many people.

    A story of Christmas blessing but so much more. Clayton gets a second chance. Merry believes in him all along. Little Jonathan gets his Christmas wish of a family - thanks Jesus for answering his prayers.

    This is a page turner that hold you in its character. I feel truly blessed for eading it.
