Review: Keeping Christmas by:Dan Walsh

Keeping Christmas
About the Book:
For the first time since their children were born, empty nesters Judith and Stan Winters spent Thanksgiving without the kids, and it's looking like Christmas will be the same. Judith can't bring herself to even start decorating for the holiday; her kids always hung the first ornaments on the tree, ornaments they had made each year since they were toddlers. Sure they were strange-looking--some could be called downright ugly--but they were tradition. A tradition she's heartbroken to miss this year.

With Judith refusing to decorate the bare spruce tree in their living room, Stan knows something must be done. And his only hope for saving the holiday is found in a box of handmade ornaments. 

Fan-favorite Dan Walsh invites readers to enjoy this nostalgic Christmas story that celebrates all of our most cherished seasonal traditions, especially the importance of family. Readers will join in remembering the things that make their own Christmas season so special.

My Review:
 Dan Walsh has a knack for writing some very beautiful, true to heart Christmas stories. They are just so lovely to read. His stories are usually a quick read too! Reading just over two hundred pages doesn't take very long. He is a brilliant writer and I love cozying up to one of his books by the fire. He is able to transform words into images, perfectly.

 Two empty-nesters are having a harder time than imagined with their children having prior engagements during the holidays. Judith and Stan are having to amuse themselves this year and poor Judith is having a harder time with it. Stan decides to lifts his brides spirits this year and he knows just how to do it.
