The Snowman Maker

The Snowman Maker
Barbara Ward

Ellie is very concerned about her husband Ben. He seems depressed and isn't talking to her. Since this is out of character for her husband, she begins to worry. She's also slightly concerned about her children and some of the decisions they are making about their future. Can Christmas bring the miracle they all seem to need?

The imagery of the story places the reader in a Christmas wonderland and brings the holiday alive. The story, while predictable and a bit cheesy in places, was so heartwarming and enjoyable. It's a great book to curl up beside a warm fire with. Without giving any details away, I also appreciated the author's ability to put a positive spin on the mother giving her child up for adoption. So often the birth mother is cast in a negative light. So I really enjoyed this plot with a loving mother and a difficult decision.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
