A Christmas Homecoming by Maryann Diorio

Seven Christmases have passed since Sonia Pettit last heard from her daughter Jody. Since Jody’s departure, Sonia’s world has been turned upside down. Her husband has died of a broken heart, and her son, bitter over his sister’s destructive actions, has become rebellious.

Her greatest desire is to have her family together at Christmas, but after what Jody has put them all through, can Sonia truly forgive her daughter?

Jody Pettit O’Dair ran away to experience a life of adventure and excitement, but since her departure, her world has been turned upside down. She’s been abandoned by the man she met and married, lost her job, and is unable to care for her two children. With nowhere else to turn, this prodigal daughter begins the long journey home and prays she will be welcomed after walking away so long ago.

Will Jody find forgiveness in the arms of her family as easily as she received it from God?

My thoughts...

This is a busy time of year but try to make time for a book or two. This is one that is short but full of so much of the Christmas spirit it's perfect. Grab a tissue and start reading, you won't be disappointed. Of course, there is a lot of drama at the beginning but as the story progresses issues get worked out and family is reunited.

Diorio has given us a well written novella that makes you feel good inside as you close the book and ponder what you've read. Forgiveness is such a powerful thing, hard to do sometimes but lifts your burdens once you give it. I highly recommend this wonderful book!
