The Christmas Women

Ss their lives and their friendships while struggling to produce the show even while Mrs Childs seems to grow weaker by the day As Christmas Eve approaches The Christmas Women prepare for an event that will take them and the audience to the farthest reaches of the human heart and resonate throughout the rest of their liv. As I read the author s biography I was surprised to read that Elyse Douglas is actually a husbandwife writing team I had already written the review in my head but when I read this my thoughts started to wander and I began thinking of the story in an entirely different wayThroughout the story which involves a Christmas high school reunion there is the usual high school drama that seems to unfold no matter how old we get I tend to think it uite easy to picture a woman writing about all of the melodrama but now thinking of a man collaborating on it the story takes on a different spin I enjoyed reading The Christmas Women The storyline was interesting and the writing was good There was friendship and romance humor and otherwise The story will have you laughing and then crying Even though the Christmas season has passed it would still be a great book to read I am giving The Christmas Women five stars I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
