    John and Ingrid Christiansen are faced with an empty nest at Christmas, so John makes plans to cheer his wife up. Unexpected situations change their plans, and they must face their problems together.

    I liked this short story about the Christiansen parents. Having read the series about the family, this novella fits right in with the other books. I am curious if the events of this book will be mentioned in future books.

    An outstanding short read! Susan May Warren's ability to get inside the heads of her characters is nothing short of amazing and "Evergreen" is a perfect example of her writing talent.

    Ingrid and John Christiansen have been married a long time, raised their six children, and are adjusting to an empty nest; when without warning, Ingrid's nephew is placed in their custodial care. Ingrid is already having bouts of melancholy over the holidays and when Romeo arrives she enthusiastically begins to "mother" him. John, on the other hand, is keeping his distance; knowing that eventually Ingrid's heart will be broken, when Romeo is allowed to reunite with his biological family. But how could he have known that Ingrid's heartache is much deeper than having grown children, worrying over sons who have distanced themselves from each other, and disappointment over the serious illness of a family pet?

    It takes some serious introspection, a lot of forgiveness, and a ruined nativity scene to sew these beloved hearts back together.

    I just love this little novella from Susan May Warren.

    I loved getting to know John and Ingrid a little more.

    After reading the other books in the series, I feel like I'm a part of this family.

    I know them, I get them and I want to know more!

    In this wonderful winter-themed novella, we get to delve into the world of the Christansen family once again and spend the holidays with them- YAY!

    John and Ingrid are the pillars of this family and getting a glimpse of their own love story was amazing.

    Like all couples and all families, the Christansen's are not without their own problems...that's part of what makes this family so endearing. Anyone who has gone through the empty-nest phase or just had to say goodbye to someone they love will be drawn to Ingrid and the struggles she's going through. John is so kind and loving...a true hero among heroes of fiction. But even the perfect fiction couple must work on their relationship, learn to let go and hold onto one another.

    Secondary characters Romeo and sweet Butter add so much to the dynamics of this story.

    Above all Evergreen is a glorious reminder to treasure family and faith! Don't miss it!

    What a wonderful, deep, truly insightful novella! Evergreen is another addition to the Christiansen family series and I am again amazed with the authors ability to craft such a deep story, filled with emotional highs and lows, and pack it into a novella.

    The Christiansen family series is definitely one of my favorites of all time. Each book focuses on one of the Christiansen children, however, the stories are all connected. Various family members appear in each novel, and although some can be read as stand alone books, they really work much better as a series. There are also two novellas in the series, and both of them focus on John and Ingrid Christiansen, the parents of the Christiansen clan. I Really Do Miss Your Smile covers the early years, when they were falling in love. Now, Evergreen delves into another very emotional time period in a familys lifethe empty nest.

    This was a very easy and smooth read, and I loved getting an inside look into John and Ingrids relationship. What I learned surprised me! Although they have deeply loved each other and raised a large family together, simmering below the surface is pain and resentment. The empty nest, that John views as an opportunity for he and Ingrid to travel and spend time together, serves as a catalyst for the release of emotions that Ingrid has buried inside for so long.

    For a short book, Evergreen packs a big punch! Old hurts are brought to light, an opportunity to open their hearts to someone God has sent into their care emerges, and John and Ingrid must both learn to give over control to God and trust that He has a plan for them that is better than any they themselves could devise. This book definitely sent me on an emotional roller coaster and it was an amazing ride! I highly recommend Evergreen and the entire Christiansen Family series.

    My thanks to Tyndale House Publishers and Litfuse Publicity for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
