About the book:
 
Jaime and C. J. Fitzpatrick began their married life as most couples do--in love and looking forward to a bright future together. But four years later they've drifted apart and are almost ready to call it quits.

Mattie Riehl was hoping to give her husband Sol the Christmas gift they have both longed for--news that a baby was on the way. But as usual, she is disappointed. The holidays bring an acute awareness to Mattie that her dream of a big family isn't likely to become a reality.

Then a winter storm raging outside blows the Fitzpatricks into the Riehl home--and into a much slower pace of life. Can these two couples from different worlds help each other understand the true meaning of love this Christmas?

With her trademark plot twists and attention to detail, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers readers a beautiful Christmas story of love, forgiveness, and what truly matters in life.

Scraps of Life Book Club Review: Here is another wonderful book by Suzanne Woods Fisher (click link to read more about her on my blog). I am a fan of her writing style and story themes. Yes, it is September and I'm writing a review on a Christmas Book! The reason for that is my participation in the Litfuse book Tour and to let you know about ahuge author Facebook party on 9/27.


This book is set during Christmas time, which is truly the most magical time of the year. For me the miracle of Christmas already happened but I so love reading stories that are written to bring  that unexpected magic into every day situations.

We've had such a long, hot summer so it was quite refreshing to read about the snow and the cold of winter. I really felt like making hot cocoa while reading this book. Ms. Fisher has two couples in her book, both facing exciting and difficult times.   My favorite part of the story is when Jaime was opening up and sharing with Mattie. Mattie just listened and starting making pies in the kitchen which baffled Jamie. Mattie stressed to Jaime that she shouldn't give up on her husband or on life without a fight just because it gets difficult. Mattie even pointed out to her that maybe she has given up on God, too. All while doing this, Mattie is making pie. Mattie is showing and guiding Jaime about strength and faith. She is making pie as a way to show that you keep going, have faith and don't give up. 

This section is extremely heartfelt and full of strength and I have reread it several times. I also have  it marked with a sticky note so that I can go back to it and read over and when times get tough and when I feel like giving up.  


If you enjoy Contemporary Christian Fiction then you will enjoy this book as well as other books written by the author.
About the Author:

Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. She has many, many Plain relatives living in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and travels back to Pennsylvania, as well as to Ohio, a couple of times each year for research.

Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world.  In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don't have to "go Amish" to incorporate many of their principles--simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily-- into your life.

When Suzanne isn't writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grandbaby (!), she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you just can't take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.

Thanks to Litfuse and Revell for giving me a copy of the book in my participation in the Book Tour. My own tasty and honest opinions are expressed here.
