Litfuse Review: Christmas at Grey Sage by:Phyllis Clark Nichols

 Christmas at Grey Sage
About the Book:
This Christmas, there’s plenty of room at the inn

Nestled in the snow-covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Santa Fe, the Grey Sage Inn is the perfect place for an unlikely group of traveling companions to spend a couple of days on their Christmas trip. There’s plenty to see in historic Santa Fe during the day, and the inn’s owners, Maude and Silas, are happy to spend their evenings hosting this year’s guests from across the country.

But an unusual snowstorm throws a wrench in the plans of these folks who were escaping Christmas at home. The sprawling inn becomes close quarters as the innkeepers and stranded guests discover this won’t be the Christmas they planned. Tension and fear mount as the storm worsens, and a sudden crisis disrupts the normally peaceful haven. The snow and stress unlock tongues — and in the unexpected conversation that follows, secrets and pasts are revealed, and hearts are healed.

Amidst snowdrifts and fireside conversations of days gone by, the warmth of this Christmas brings renewed hope as trapped strangers become friends — proof again that the joy, hope, peace, and love of Christmas can be experienced no matter where you are.


My Review:
 Christmas is such a great holiday. It gives me and warm and fuzzy feeling just thinking about it. The Grey Sage Inn is the perfect backdrop for this holiday story. Nestled deep in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Santa Fe, the inn is a welcome site. It is an ironic story because who expects snow in this part of the country and the snowstorm is not a mild one by any means. 


 Maude and Silas always enjoyed having their families and friends in attendance every holiday season. The story described in perfect detail Christmas Eve and all the goodies that go with it. This book will take you back in time and bounce back and forth from 1973 to 2005. So it is a neat travel back in time book that is sure to get under your skin and help you spur on the holidays.

 A sweet story about family, all types. Spending the holidays under a snow filled roof doesn't get any better than this.
