Good book. Both Alex and Krista had issues about living in their hometown. Alex refused to leave because of what had happened to his mom, and Krista refused to stay because of guilt over her father's accident. Each of them had to learn to let go of the past before they could move on to a future together.
Wow!! What a wonderful book..This is what I expect from a Christmas story..It has love,family,relationships,and forgivness..It follows the life of Krista who left home eight yrs. earlier for all the wrong reasons and what she comes to realize when she returns home due to a family members health crises..Highly recommend this book..
