The love stories described in this book were wonderful! I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Sarah's story and how she became

reunited with the man that she loved, through a song she wrote just for him. I loved how she used her story and song to

minister to Beth, who is struggling in her own marriage.

The story reminded me of the return of the prodigal son. Sarah ran off to Nashville to chase a dream, leaving the man that

she loved. Only, she gets entangled into such a negative lifestyle. Broken, she returns to her parents, who welcome her

back with open arms. And eventually, she is reunited with her loved one with open arms. And the same with Beth, with her


I loved the Red Gloves theme in this book as well, and how Kingsbury used each letter of "The Red Gloves" for each of the 12 Days of Christmas that Sarah uses to tell her love story. And the Red Glove ideas for ministering to the elderly were great, too.

This is a very quick, but sentimental read. About an elderly woman who has one last gift to give in her life-a miracle. She just has to find out who to give it to. The story is heart warming and, though short, you get a real sense of the emotions felt by the characters, especially Beth and Sarah. It is a great Christmastime read, and worth recommending to friends, especially those who need a pick-me-up. As all of Kingsbury's books in the Red Gloves series, the author places a special pair of red gloves for us to find in the book, as well as "Red Glove" project ideas for us to do in our own lives. Very commendable. I would recommend this as a great short read for you and your family this Christmas season.

Karen Kingsbury has found a formula for success before --- that's why she has over a million and a half books in print --- and she has definitely found it again in her Red Gloves series, of which the newest title is SARAH'S SONG. The red gloves, she explains on her website ([...] symbolize red because "red is the color of Christ's love at Christmastime, a season of giving.

The first books in the Red Gloves series were also alliterative: MAGGIE'S MIRACLE and GIDEON'S GIFT, making SARAH'S SONG seem somewhat sensible. (Oops, I got carried away...) Eighty-six-year-old Sarah Lindeman begins her annual Christmas ritual of placing twelve handmade paper ornaments on a small plastic tree, and hopes that as she works her way through her personal "twelve days of Christmas" (the twelve days before December 25, for Sarah), that she will be able to reach out, through her song and her story, to someone in need.

At first Sarah believes that Beth Baldwin, the young married nurse on her floor, will not be the person she reaches. But as Sarah's ornament days progress and she finds herself in the thick of old and painful memories, Beth finds herself in the midst of domestic chaos and marital trauma. The beautiful and meaningful song that Sarah herself wrote and sings on each day of her ritual winds its way into Beth's heart and mind until she finds herself asking Sarah for counsel.

Sarah eagerly shares the story of her paper decorations, each of which has a name ("Excitement," "Rebellion") representing an action or period in Sarah's story of finding love. A naturally talented singer, Sarah had longed as a young woman to "make it" in Nashville. But when she leaves her tiny hometown for that city, she finds that the road to stardom is paved with roadblocks.

I finished this book in one afternoon. The time flew by and I kept turning the pages eager to see what happened next. I love this type of story.I have always loved to see elderly people in books and movies turn back the clock and share the memories of the passionate love affairs of their youth. Besides the eloquent writing, the book also had good underlying messages.

Format: Hardcover
I didn't think I would like this story, but after the first couple of pages I quickly became engrossed. One of my favorite aspects of the story is that it is based in the Greer/Spartanburg area, which is just minutes from where I live.

I hate to sound shallow, but I don't normally like to read stories about older characters. I'm not to that stage in my life yet and it makes me sad to read about someone in a nursing home with no friends or family around them, waiting for death.

Karen wrote a beautiful story, with a beautiful meaning. Even though the story was based in 1941 it will appeal to any age reader as the things that happened to Sarah could happen to any one at any time of there life.

The impact of Sarah's story on Beth was especially touching to me, I really enjoyed seeing her heart soften towards her husband.

Definately worth 5 Stars!

Every year Sarah Lindeman tell's her story of love, loss, and redemption, with 12 ornaments and the song she wrote so many years ago. Sarah tells her story while Beth, a nurse with a troubled marriage listens.
Sarah tells of her dreams and desires to become a star in Nashville, and as Beth listens she is filled with hope.
It's never too late for a miracle...

I think novella is my favorite so far in the Red Gloves Series, it weaves an spellbinding tale switching with ease from modern day and into Sarah's past. Both the story blended well together, and I was equally riveting by both the storylines, and one of favorites to read was actually the point of view of Beth's husband.

I loved how the story unfolded, over the course of the 12 days of Christmas, and how Beth's heart changed as Sarah wove her story and song. I read this in almost one sitting!

Overall, this was a touching and poignant story, and quite honestly I didn't expect this type of story from just looking at the cover, but you know what they always say...A great novella with a great message of hope for Christmas time or all year round. Highly recommend!
