Lauren Gabriel doesn't believe in happy families. Abandoned by both of her parents, she spent most of her life growing up in foster homes, and while some of them were nice, she has always felt like she was on the outside looking in. When Lauren finds herself driving around after work one day, she witnesses a hit and run accident and has to I.D. the perpetrator in the picture perfect town of Grandon. And before she knows it, Lauren is recruited to help out at Glory's Place, a centre for families, to raise money for Christmas. As she is surrounded by the magic and good spirit of the holidays, Lauren decides to print an ad looking for a family for Christmas. After all, who knows what the season has in store...
With beautiful characters such as Ben, the young cashier, who writes special Christmas notes for all of his customers, to Gloria and Miriam, two old friends who disagree on everything except on what truly matters, the town of Grandon comes alive with its charm and caring community. THE CHRISTMAS TOWN by Donna VanLiere is a feel-good novel that will warm your heart and soul. With plenty of wonderful, quirky characters, the story flows easily along, and I really enjoyed watching Lauren come out of her shell and start to believe in love and life again. THE CHRISTMAS TOWN by Donna VanLiere is a Christmas read that will put a smile on your face this holiday season.
