Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Ann B. Ross, a delightful story in which Miss Julia discovers the joy of giving and receiving gifts—and just in time for Valentine’s Day

Featuring the beloved stars of the Miss Julia novels—Luanne, Lillian, Hazel Marie, and of course, Miss Julia herself—Miss Julia's Gift is a funny and moving meditation on love, marriage, and the purpose of gift-giving. Miss Julia finds herself reminiscing about her first year of marriage to Sam Murdoch. Everything seemed perfect—alarmingly so. Miss Julia feared that Sam would morph from a sweet and loveable man into a replica of her loathsome first husband, the boring and deceitful Wesley Lloyd Springer. Even Sam's adorable habit of giving her gifts for all holidays and occasions—no matter how minor—caused Miss Julia anxiety. When will the other shoe drop, she wondered? After some soul-searching and valuable advice from her friends, Miss Julia comes to understand that Sam is nothing like Wesley—and never will be. Then, just in time for Valentine's Day, she thinks up the perfect romantic gift for her husband and realizes which gift she values most of all.

    Wonderful Reading. All of Ann Ross' books are page turners.

    I have so enjoyed all of Ann Ross' books. This was basically teaches you a lesson that all people are not the same and you can always learn something from every person, good or bad.

    A sweet novella about learning to appreciated what you have. Miss Julia dispenses wise advice. I enjoyed looking back on the early days of her marriage to Sam.

    I received a complimentary copy from the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    A quick enjoyable read.

    A very sweet story about how Miss Julia is confused by Sam's expression of love for her in the way of gifts and how she is supposed to react when she receives them. The confusion stems from comparisons of Sam and her late husband Wesley Lloyd Springer. She does come up with a perfect gift for Sam in the end.
