free read The Christmas Women summary ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Elyse Douglas Elyse Douglas ☆ 7 review Ad directed Determined to show their love for Mrs Childs they plan a 20 year reunion to recreate the Christmas show for her What they don't anticipate is the complicated emotions this provokes as former sweethearts appear and rekindle romance painful memories and the sting of unrealized dreams All three women must reasse. I loved this book I waited a bit to read it because I wanted to read it during the Christmas time and I am so glad I did While this would be a great read anytime of the year it was fantastic to read it and enjoy the bits about Christmas plays carols the spirit moving everyone to help others etcThe three women were extremely easy to relate to They all had regrets or thoughts that I think all women reflect on even men perhaps as they reach different parts of their life What ifs if onlys etc as we see our life go one way or the other I loved the struggle that each character faced within family friends and their past as they worked to move past it to get to where they wanted to be and to help someone they admired and loved from their past Mrs Childsoh my goodness what a wonderful character and fully developed part of the story Everyone should be so lucky to have a teacher who has that type of impact on during and after school My least favorite woman was Kristen and the reason is because the writing and development of her character was so on point that I just wanted to kick her I mean not making up her mind being selfish etc seemed to be her mo the ENTIRE storynot just high school but then she finds a way to make me like even her at the end of the story Seriously though the route she takes in this story is so convoluted and I loved it I went from not liking her to liking her to hating her to loving her to only liking her No other character had me so torn about my opinion on themThe men of this storyoh the menhow fantastic was it that these men were realistic and not over the top They helped make this story feel like it could happen and that the everyday romance and love could exist My favorite was how all the men found a way to address what went wrong or where everyone veered in high school to fix the relationships Jon and his role in this story was complex and made him one of my favorites At times I laughed at his audacity gasped at his callousness cringed when I thought he responded a certain way to Trudie near the end and wanted to applaud when he helped make the ending of this book so fantastic This was an easy and immensely enjoyable read I did read it in one night but it also has impressed me with how often I have thought about the main story the side stories and its characters since I finished it a few days ago I would recommend this book and author to anyone looking for a light holiday readFull review at wwwmeghanvarnerblogspotcom

free read The Christmas Women summary ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Elyse Douglas Elyse Douglas ☆ 7 review Ss their lives and their friendships while struggling to produce the show even while Mrs Childs seems to grow weaker by the day As Christmas Eve approaches The Christmas Women prepare for an event that will take them and the audience to the farthest reaches of the human heart and resonate throughout the rest of their liv. As I read the author s biography I was surprised to read that Elyse Douglas is actually a husbandwife writing team I had already written the review in my head but when I read this my thoughts started to wander and I began thinking of the story in an entirely different wayThroughout the story which involves a Christmas high school reunion there is the usual high school drama that seems to unfold no matter how old we get I tend to think it uite easy to picture a woman writing about all of the melodrama but now thinking of a man collaborating on it the story takes on a different spin I enjoyed reading The Christmas Women The storyline was interesting and the writing was good There was friendship and romance humor and otherwise The story will have you laughing and then crying Even though the Christmas season has passed it would still be a great book to read I am giving The Christmas Women five stars I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
