This was one really awesome Christmas read! When Natalie Pearce chose not to go help her mom take down her Christmas decorations, she never dreamed what the year ahead held for she and her family. When her mom suffered a stroke that left her helpless, Natalie blamed herself for her mom’s condition. A string of events lead to Natalie leaving her husband and daughter, accepting a job that would require most of her time, and leaving her with strained relationships that may not be fixable.
Most of the time we like to think that all is perfect at Christmas time, but it is usually not. Life situations just doesn’t look at our calendar first before they happen. It was heartbreaking, yet refreshing to read One Imperfect Christmas because it was sad to see Natalie and her family going through what they had to endure with her mom, yet it was comforting to know that everyone has difficult situations during the Christmas Season, some not as bad as others, but we all have our heartaches. But I really like how Myra Johnson weaves everything together, good and bad, and brings an ending to the story that will give you peace, and make you smile. Not an ending that the Pearce family wanted, but one that gave them hope. This is an amazing debut novel for Ms. Johnson, and yes it was written a few years ago, but the message is still the same. I can’t believe I haven’t read it before this year. I really want to encourage you to pick up a copy of One Imperfect Christmas by Myra Johnson for a few hours for delightful entertainment. You will be glad you did!
Honestly, this story dragged on longer than it needed to. It's suppose to be a nice "Christmasy" read. We experience Natalie basically breaking down after her mother has a serious stroke which changes her for life. Her marriage falls apart and her relationship with her daughter becomes strained. We see Natalie's family butting into her relationship. Her brother, Hart trying to create circumstances for them to be in the same place, while he had good intensions, it was still a little fake, most men don't do that kind of stuff. I'd expect that more from Hart's wife than him. I thought the scene when Daniel rode out on the old, fat, scary acting horse "Pokey" to see his Natalie and Lissa was hilarious.
I did feel a bad for Natalie's father, pretty bad losing a spouse to a stroke. It's like she's no longer there. It was so sad to read Belinda speaking to her husband so naturally, except it was in only her mind. She couldn't physically get the words out, instead her words come out as mumble/moaning. That was sad.
I would call this book Christian "lite" because I couldn't really tell if this book was Christian fiction until towards the end. It had a hint of it all throughout, but at the end there was more of church, bible verses and "thank you Jesus" going on. I didn't mind it, but I'm glad that it wasn't overly preachy, It had what you expect from a feel good book, there's a dilemma, a moral and a happy-ish ending.
Overall, this book was just something to read and free. I probably won't purchase a book from this author.
