The Apology by Janet & Michael Weaver
This debut Christmas novel that started as a 12 year old dream for Janet, was well worth the wait. Martha Day is a recent widow who has had regrets that her grown children haven't been as close as she'd like, so she set out to write a letter, inviting each of her three children for Thanksgiving.
Her son Bill has been having struggles, Charlotte is just too busy to stay in contact with her mother and Nellie has a secret she is afraid to share.
Martha is putting her memories together to give to her children, hopefully for Christmas, and it isn't until a complete stranger appears at Martha's door days before Christmas, do things come to a head.
This is a very heartwarming and honest portrayal of family relationships, identity, and most of all, forgiveness. This should be a Christmas classic for all families to read during the holiday season.
I received this review copy from Cedar Fort.

As one who has resisted the "Christmas" genre, I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Of course, I didn't buy it myself. It's not my 'style.' At the encouragement of my wife, I read this book and it was just excellent.
This is a book I could read more than once, and that is saying something.
I will be able to get my Christmas shopping done in about 5 minutes now because I will be giving everyone a copy of this book.
Does anyone know if this author has written any other books?
