Overview

The New York Times bestselling authors take a nostalgic journey into the Cape Light of Christmas past.

As Cape Light dwellers get ready to deck the halls for a Christmas to remember, curmudgeonly Lillian Warwick is confined to bed, injured after a nasty fall. Cared for by her daughters, Emily and Jessica, she lets her thoughts drift back to the holiday season of 1955, when she first met Oliver Warwick, the dashing man who would become her husband. Recounting those romantic early days, she is reminded of a time when she had much to be grateful for-and recognizes the mistakes she's made since. And to cap off this life-altering season, there just might be a winter wedding on the horizon.

I enjoyed this book, I have all the others in the series and this was just as good as I remembered the others being. You find yourself involved in the people and feel like you are there in the neighborhood. Once I got started it was hard to put down. An easy read.

I enjoyed visiting Cape Light once again! If you have never read any of the Cape Light books be sure to start at the beginning and read them in order. I love reading these books during the Christmas season. They are the Christmas version of a "beach read".

Just a few days past Thanksgiving in Cape Light, Sara comes to see her grandmother, who fails to respond to her knock or her entrance. She finds Lillian unconscious on the floor of her bedroom. Sara quickly calls 911. Lillian has pneumonia. --- While lying on the floor, Lillian was dreaming back to 1955 when she was an assistant curator at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. That summer she was visiting her cousin Charlotte in Newburyport when she met Oliver Warwick at a yacht club gala. He courted her as he thought she was beautiful, strong, and filled with an élan for life. Oliver loved her and though at first she rejected his advances, she soon loved him too. She continues her muses thinking about the mistakes she has made, how much she loves her daughters, and Sara who returned into their lives just a few years ago having been given up for adoption. Lily wonders when did she turn from a spirited happy person into a matronly scrooge, She ponders whether it is too late to regain what she once was emotionally starting with this yuletide season as she begins to realize how much joy her life has been surrounded by loved ones. --- The latest Christmas Cape Light inspirational tale (see CHRISTMAS ANGEL and A CHRISTMAS PROMISE) is a fine character driven story starring an elderly angry miserable person who upon becoming ill reflects on her life to her loved ones. Lily is an interesting character as she knows how ugly she has become especially when she thinks back to the salad days with her beloved Oliver. Though her transformation seems too simplistic, fans of the series will enjoy her reflections on her life. --- Harriet Klausner

I AM DISAPOINTED IN THIS BOOK. I HAVE READ ALL OF THE BOOKS FROM THE CAPE LIGHT SERIES. I DID NOT LIKE THE WAY THE AUTHOR KEPT GOING FROM THE PAST TO THE PRESENT AND FROM THE PRESENT TO THE PAST. THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK IN THIS SERIES THAT THIS HAPPENED IN AND I WAS NOT PLEASED. PLEASE DON'T DO THIS FOR ANY OF THE REMAINING BOOKS IN THIS SERIES. UP UNTIL NOW I HAVE BEEN 100% WITH THE AUTHOR.

As always, Thomas Kinkade delivers once again in the Cape Light Series. Every book in the series keeps me wanting more. I enjoy reading books about ordinary people and their everyday obstacles, adventures and joys. This series takes you on a journey with each and every character.

I finished reading the book today, and I enjoyed it. It's another great Christmas story, with Lillian dreaming and thinking often about her past. It explains how she has become so bitter, although that's still not an excuse to remain that way and she's slowly realizing it and trying to act on it. And thank goodness Charlie's finally coming around, too, making Lucy's life easier. My question is, why did it read in the description of the book (on the book flap) that Lillian had pneumonia but that's never mentioned in the entire book? Something else happens to her (Sara finds her lying on the floor after Lillian has an accident). The only time pneumonia is mentioned in the book is someone else in another place. The one thing I really disliked about it, besides the editing mistakes, was the minister who believes in God and Christ and obeying God's word, but says he's not sure hell exists. What's the point in even obeying God's word if one doesn't believe in hell, if one believes everyone's going to heaven regardless of what they do? I hope that character learns better, especially since he's a minister, in future books. That's very misleading for readers who don't know better than to believe anything, fiction or nonfiction, that they read. I recommend the book, but be careful with some parts of it, such as the part I just mentioned.

I could see this book in the movie theater, such vivid details and great storyline! I used to watch the show LOST so the past/present storyline was like visiting an old friend, I welcomed it and it was done perfectly!
