Coming Home for Christmas
About the Book:
Elizabeth Hamilton has been lost. Trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents, she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life. And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger and the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.
But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Elizabeth back home to the family she loves, just in time for Christmas. And being reunited with Luke and her children is better than anything Elizabeth could have imagined. As they all trim the tree and bake cookies, making new holiday memories, Elizabeth and Luke are drawn ever closer. Can the hurt of the past seven years be healed over the course of one Christmas season and bring the Hamiltons the gift of a new beginning?
Christmas reads are supposed to be sweet and heartwarming and this one doesn't miss on either count. Coming Home for Christmas continues the saga of Luke and Elizabeth that was begun in Cottages on Silver Beach. It makes you think about what would happen to the lives of your loved ones if you just vanished one day.
If you are looking for a heartwarming Christmas read that focuses on the love of family, this should be right up your alley. Grade: B.
