From the Inside Flap
She's determined to give her baby a better life.
Could a Christmas miracle make it possible?
Not long after she receives the news in 1944 that her baby's father was shot down in the South Pacific, Amelia Richards loses hope. Jobless and broke, she has nowhere to turn for help but her infant's paternal grandparents. The only problem is, they don't know that she--or their grandson--exists.
When Amelia discovers the family is wealthy and influential, dare she disclose the truth of her relationship with their son? Or could the celebration of the arrival of another unexpected baby nearly two thousand years ago be the answer to her dilemma?|Melody Carlson is the award-winning author of over two hundred books with combined sales of more than six million. She is the author of several Christmas books, including the bestselling The Christmas Bus, The Christmas Dog, Christmas at Harrington's, The Christmas Cat, The Christmas Joy Ride, and The Christmas Angel Project. She received a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award in the inspirational market for her many books, including the Diary of a Teenage Girl series and Finding Alice. She and her husband live in central Oregon. Learn more at www.melodycarlson.com.
From the Back Cover
Although Amelia would be on the train only until tomorrow morning, she unpacked a few things with the goal of making Jimmy and herself as comfortable as possible. To her delight, this cozy sleeping car felt just right for the two of them. Not only that, but as the train began to move, Jimmy relaxed and settled in. Almost as if he were glad they were finally on their way. Maybe he instinctively knew that life was about to get better for them. Perhaps he would enjoy meeting his paternal grandparents. At the moment the train pulled out of the station, anything seemed possible.

Can I give it more than five stars? Melody Carlson's Christmas books are on the list of books that I look forward to coming out every year...she just writes them so well! This one was no exception. They are full of character (both through the people and through the well-described setting) and there is always some sort of moral struggle, but the lead learns to lean on faith to make it through. That's where the similarities end (so don't worry that all of the books are exactly the same). I loved the story here...AND it ended just like I hoped it would. It was a bit of a long shot, but it was the perfect ending!
Carlson creates characters who are easy to invest in, and they will have you crying and smiling throughout the story. The descriptions are vivid and are perfect for getting the reader in the holiday spirit. Amelia is a brave heroine, who is determined to do all she can to give her baby the best life possible. The story starts to feel a bit rushed as things unfold. This is a novella, so it's a quick read. Though not totally original, there is a nice twist at the end.
