This book is the gift to buy. Loved it.
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. Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc.

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?
