His father started the backwards Christmas and played Santa himself taking the presents to the children in surrounding villages. Chris’ parents died on such a trip, and Chris walked away from the celebration and all it meant, but he couldn’t walk away from the memory of loving Noelle.
Ms. Williams has written a warm Christmas tale involving believable characters set in a magical setting. Even with all the trappings and sparkle of the season, the true meaning of the holiday shines through.
This is a cute short story that revolves around the meaning of Christmas, love, loss, hope, faith, and second chances. It’s a quick enjoyable read that reminds us what the true meaning of Christmas is.

"Backwards Christmas" by Brooke Williams
A 'Backwards Christmas' what did that mean? Well in the South Pole, Alaska that is what they do every single year. Yes, celebrate a 'Backwards Christmas.' This author gives the reader quite a interesting short short read that will have upside down trees and I loved how the mistletoe will come into play as you read the story. The story being of two people ...Chris Furst who had lost his parent in a tragic way and he seemed to have lost his way being a non believer of the holiday spirit. Then their is Noelle Richards who had one time been in Chris's life but due to certain reasons things had changed with Christ after his parents had died. Now, I don't want to tell too much of the story but we find Noelle is a tour guide and there will be a lots going on in this small town around this Christmas time. Will there be a turnaround for Chris during this time as he seems to be coming around? Will he seek the love that he once had with Noelle? What about his faith? Will there be a second chance for him and Noelle? Well, to find out the answers to these questions and more you will have to pick up "Backwards Christmas" to see how well this author will bring it all out to the readers.
This was a beautiful written short Christmas read of how some things are done so very different in South Pole, Alaska. If you love the cold weather and something a little different in reading for the Christmas holiday then I would definitely recommend this read especially to you.
I received a copy through NOR in exchange for an honest review.
This was a quick read. Noelle is a sweet woman, who loves her hometown and Christmas. Her love for Jesus is even bigger. She tells us readers the true meaning of Christmas. I agree with her completely, but a Backwards Christmas is not something I have done and I would not want to. It was nice to read about how things are done differently in South Pole, Alaska.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!
