Overview

Elvis croons from the radio as Christmas descends upon a small Kansas town in 1971. Michelle Penn has started a new job at a tiny weekly newspaper, and the boss’s son, Rob, is quickly making her forget all about her former sweetheart in Vietnam. Rob feels trapped working for his father and dreams of working for a bigger newspaper. But now that he’s met Michelle, she is what he wants most of all. Unfortunately, Rob is forbidden by office policy to date her, but if he were to quit his job, he’d have nothing to offer her. As snow blankets the town, it seems that the gifts Rob and Michelle most desire—each other—are out of reach. But then they didn’t count on a small Christmas miracle.

    Silver Bells by Deborah Raney In Silver Bells I took a peek into

    Silver Bells by Deborah Raney
    In Silver Bells I took a peek into an era before technology took over the newspaper business. Throughout the story Deb’s descriptions of the 1970s are right on. From early microwave ovens to Little Golden books illustrated by Eloise Wilkin, I revisited many of the joys of my youth. Yet under it all the turmoil of the Vietnam War wrestled with everyday life.  
    Even though Michelle Penn had a very different future in mind, she took a job at the local newspaper to make ends meet. She never dreamed she’d meet up with Mr. Popular from high school, let alone actually enjoy his company. In an era of women’s liberation, war, and a fight for women’s freedom from domestic abuse, how does a hometown girl confront reality and find love at the same time? What appears as a simple romance dives into the importance of surrounding others with compassion that has no fear. Deb Raney created a story of love and forgiveness that plays on the heart. I enjoyed the love story between Michelle and Rob and the story of love they shared for Becky, a young mom in need. I recommend Silver Bells as a warm-hearted Christmas read that reveals the true spirit of the season.

    I loved this book.
    I won this book, and so enjoyed reading it. It was wonderful to see how far we have come to helping family with abuse, and the lost of Michelle's first love because he didn't know how to break up with her and join the military and then expected her to want to be waiting for him. Michelle finding her independence and making friends with someone who needed her and Michelle finding her faith again and finding love with Rob.
