Pete's sense of humor as he realizes Lisa has figured out what he neglected to tell her, and his sensitivity to accept Lisa's crazy actions with understanding for her motivation, makes him the perfect, if messy, knight.
In addition to a story that makes you feel good and want to do good, several timely topics (homelessness, PTSD, etc) are brought to light in life-situations. I feel rewarded to walk away with a nugget or two that opened my eyes or expanded my understanding on a topic, in addition to a warm heart at the hopeful outcome of a good read.
Lisa is a widow who blames herself for not being present when her late husband contracted the illness that took his life. She's a podiatric nurse now. She also has PTSD around her loss. She gets "guilted" by her sister-in-law to serve Thanksgiving at the Homeless Shelter, where an incident sends her reeling and forces her to abandon her service to hide.
Anders "Pete" Petersen works with the men at the Shelter, but when Lisa first meets him, she mistakes him for a client. She finds that her elderly patients need help, and assumes Pete needs the work, so, without talking to him, she dreams up a scheme to help out both ends of the equation, little knowing just how much she's also helping herself.
I haven't laughed this hard in a while, nor cried as much. In this funny, poignant novella, Cathe Swanson reminds our jaded world just what the holidays are all about. Looking forward to seeing this author in other works. Highly recommended
(This novella is also part of the Christmas Lights boxed set)
