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.

Hey, friends out there. My son and I wrote this book which was published by Cedar Fort. We had a lot of fun writing it. We would greatly appreciate it if you would read the book and help us get it into circulation.

I was not crazy about this book. Too many with problems with her 3 children. I do agree with Beth that is was a small & nice book to read at Christmas!
This was a good idea, but it really needed to be developed more. It really didn't share much about the characters.
The thought behind this book is nice, but it wraps up a little too quickly and unbelievably for me.
Quick read that seemed a bit far fetched, but had a good ending.
It was a good story with a lesson we all need to learn.
