    2. A quick quaint lovely Christmastime faith based read with a touch of romance And though I m not a huge fan of romance focused novels I find they re typically too melodramatic, unrealistic, and syrupy for my tastes this novel s primary focus is on healing, hope, faith, and courage to love again Claire, still reeling with grief from her husband and son s deaths, knows she needs to reengage with life in addition to finding her artist s edge that she let fall by the wayside She s hit a seemingly imp [...]


    3. Reviewer s Note This novella is one of three in the omnibus edition shown above, which I purchased However, I am going to review it separately, since doing three reviews in one post would make the post much too long It would also not allow me the space to comment on everything I want to mention This is an absolutely beautiful story that in part reads almost like a fairy tale, although it revolves around a very real tragedy The desolation and grief felt by Claire are indeed all too real, as is he [...]


    4. This was a beautiful story of a woman who was grieving and unable to let go As the story unfolds, she comes to terms with her loss by some amazing circumstances that occur during her stay at a mountain cabin She begins to heal, as she learns to trust in her faith, and gets support from unexpected sources.I am intrigued by snow it s soft texture, the unique designs of the snowflakes, and the power to make a beautiful image out of something, as an old tree lying on the ground Yet, it also has a po [...]


    5. Sweet, but formulaic Widow on the not quite on the mend meets handsome widower, acts like teen, etc etc Not much depth to characters or plot Despite the Guideposts imprint, the story is only vaguely Christian, as many angel stories are these days Shouldn t offend anyone.Hard to believe Carlson has published 150 books Her knowledge of painting, wood stoves and wood lore seems to have come from reading other people s fiction though apparently she has first hand experience with all.The writing incl [...]


    6. This was a very sweet read about dealing with grief during the Christmas season, as well as belief in heavenly beings The story s religious theme was both subtly worked and fitting to the story that was told at the same time Claire was a believable heroine, and while we don t see much of Garrett, he is a hero that fits Claire The story revolves around Claire and it becomes very easy to empathize with her and her situation I kept thinking I should get a grieving friend of mine to read it, it was [...]

    12. Angels in the Snow by Melody Carlson is my 17th Christmas story of the season.This was a novella, which I normally don t like, but Melody Carlson is such a good writer I couldn t help but enjoy it She can take a short story and give it the right amount of detail so it feels almost like a complete book Many do not They shorten a long story to novella size, and the brevity makes the story feel like too much is missing.Anyway, this is a sweet story of an artist who has lost all her creativity since [...]


    13. Snow storms, pain, loss of loved ones, finding peace and maybe romance.At first the story moved slowly, you could feel the pain Claire was dealing with and her lack of desire to live or paint It wasn t until she found the dog that the story took off and she started painting again The despair lifted and she seemed content until the owner of the dog came to get him She had not been able to come to grips with her husband and sons death and sees footsteps in the snow that would have matched theirs [...]
