John was life's smile, but now he was gone...
Swept away as a bride from the South Carolina coast, Kathryn Sullivan creates a fairy-tale life with her husband in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Her picture-perfect world is shattered, and life rendered meaningless, when John loses his battle against pancreatic cancer. Grief stricken, Kathryn withdraws from the Christmas traditions that she once held dear... until a precocious and hysterical neighbor, seven-year-old Abigail, prods her to drag the Christmas decorations from storage. A silver charm bracelet, resurfacing among the boxes, prepares Kathryn's broken heart to receive a life-changing miracle.
Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5The Christmas BraceletApril 10, 2015KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5i was completely drawn into the idyllic lives of Kathryn and John in this heartwarming story. The author beautifully weaves their memories together, as charms on a bracelet, commemorating their unique responses to the daily challenges that are common to all. Accurately conveying the South's beauty and charm, this sweet story makes the reader feel a participant rather than an observor, inviting one to sit at table with Kathryn and enjoy a glass of sweet tea. After the tragic loss of her husband, I could not help but feel the pain of Kathyrn's grief...but just in time, blessed relief and healing come in the most marvelous way.
Please don't think this book should be reserved for Christmas...it would make a wonderful gift for anyone who is dealing with grief or loss.
