Christmas is a time to be merry and bright. For Minka Montgomery, it’s anything but.
While the small towns of Martha’s Vineyard burst with festive lights and good cheer, a black shadow parades around and within Minka. With her Christmas spirit conspicuously absent, her marriage to Jason Montgomery has snowballed and is spiraling out of control. The weight of motherhood – and her new role as a wife – presses on her shoulders. Self-doubt creeps in and swiftly turns to hopelessness.
As her anxiety level rises, can she share what’s in her heart with her husband? Is there a branch of hope to hold on to? With Christmas only twelve days away, can she find her Christmas spirit and rediscover the true meaning of the season?
♥ ♥ Pretty Little Review ♥ ♥
This is a very touching portrayal of postpartum depression and I felt a swell of emotions while reading this novella. While I was not expecting to read something so deep- especially as a novella- I was pleasantly surprised at how well the author pulled this off in a short amount of pages. She even successfully manages to add in a dash of Christmas too. This book is well written, sweet, and touching. I highly recommend it!
Minka Montgomery is feeling the weight of the world on her shoulders after she has twins. While this moment in her life should bring her pure joy she is feeling anything but that. She has two beautiful children, a loving husband, and it is her favorite time of year- Christmas. But she can’t seem to get out of a funk that has been weighing her down for months. Will her feelings of hopelessness and fear ever go away? Will she ever find cheer in Christmas again? –Read it and you will find out!
This is a wonderful, touching, and somewhat heartbreaking story of a woman’s struggles to overcome postpartum depression. The author does a great job with this story and I recommend it to all fans of women’s fiction and holiday reads! It’s not light and fluffy like some Christmas novellas out there but it does touch your heart. Give this one a try. You will not be disappointed.
