The story of Melody Carlson’s An Irish Christmas is one of intrigue, human depth, and challenged relationships. In this book the reader encounters two main characters. The first is a recently widowed woman named Colleen Frederick. The second is Jamie Frederick, Colleen’s son, who is of college age and just wrapping up the last of his school days.

Carlson writes very well. Her characters are not only three-dimensional but also amusing and realistic. Readers identify with their stresses, goals, hopes, frustrations, and ambitions. They have problems, just like normal people. Because of this, the reader is able to understand and sympathize with both the mom and son. Carlson writes the book in a very refreshing manner, shifting back and forth between Jamie and Colleen’s points of view in sharing one is as first person from two perspectives.

Jamie and Colleen both have secrets they’re keeping from each other. And, with the death of Hal, Jamie’s father and Colleen’s husband, the situation doesn’t get any easier for either of them. Jamie decides he wants to join the Air Force, much to his mother’s dismay, and Colleen eventually sells the old family business and is in the process of selling the family house, too. And, on top of all that, the stress continues to build for both of them because of the guilt they are feeling about their secrecy. Eventually, those secrets break loose, and the story takes a shocking turn of events.

An Irish Christmas is a warming story filled with human nature, faith, and understanding. There are valuable lessons to be learned from this tale about maturity, patience, and genuine love. It is a short book, and very fast-paced. And with the tension building between the two main characters and their secret confessions, the reader is sure to stay engaged and intrigued. Women will be more likely to pick up this book, but men can get a lot of enjoyment out of it too. -- Joshua Wagner, Christian Book

    I read a lot of Christmas novellas this Christmas, and this was one of the best. Slightly longer than most, it seemed to have more depth. I especially appreciated the alternating first person approach - seeing the events from the perspectives of the two main character, but really getting inside their heads to what they were thinking and feeling. The story moved along well, but still had a depth that was surprising in such a short novel. It was great to explore Ireland with Jamie and his mum, meet some Irish characters and get a feel for the Emerald Isle. I enjoyed the gentle reference to Christmas. A satisfying December story, which I highly recommend.
