The stories in this book are about second chances.
In the first story, A Miracle for Miriam by Kathleen Fuller; Miriam is given another chance at love. Seth, the boy she had a crush on during school, made fun of her and wouldn't give her the time of day. Now, years later he has come back. In fact, it is his wish that Miriam will forgive him. That he will have another chance to show her how much he cares. Will they both get the second chance that they both deserve? Will Miriam be able to forgive Seth?
The second story, A choice to Forgive by Beth Wiseman is about Lydia's second chance at love. After her fiancée Daniel disappeared one Christmas Eve leaving Lydia heartbroken, she turned to his brother and built a life with him. Years later, she is a widower with three children when Daniel appears on her door step stirring up all kinds of emotions she kept hidden. Will Lydia learn the reason for Daniel's disappearance? Will they have a second chance to find love with each other?
The final story, One Child by Barbara Cameron is the story of Sarah. Sarah and David are coming upon the anniversary of their miscarriage. All Sarah wants is a child of her own. She pleads with the man above that if she could only have one that would be enough. An English couple gets stranded at their house for Christmas. It turns out the woman is pregnant. Will this Christmas be the year that things change for Sarah?
I believe everyone deserves a second chance at love! In the first story, I could relate to Miriam. I never thought I was good enough for anyone that is until I met my husband. I was ecstatic to read the story of Seth and Miriam and how her dream came true. She was able to be loved by the man whom she loved.
Does loving one man mean you can't love another? Lydia feels that she can't move on. Her husband is gone and her first love is back in the picture. Letting yourself love again after a tragedy isn't dishonoring your husband's memory. Daniel in this case made the mistake of leaving and not telling Lydia why. However, I believe he had good intentions that night. Daniel was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I can relate to wanting to have a baby of your own. I think that Kate and her husband were sent to Sarah and David's house for a purpose. Sarah delivering Kate's baby on Christmas day was a miracle, a miracle that softened her heart. She was able to think about something else and not dwell on the anniversary of her miscarriage.
I rate this book 5/5
By the time I finished with the third story I was in tears. Each author and each story is a testament to the Love of God, and His forgiveness and mercy.
