THE MEMORY TREE by Joseph Pittman
As the holidays descend upon Linden Corners, life becomes a flurry of cooking, shopping, and visiting friends and family—and young Janey Sullivan is worried her Christmas traditions may get lost in the mix. Though she loves her adoptive father, Brian Duncan, she longs for her birth parents and questions her past. But an unexpected yuletide visitor may have just the answers she needs.
Haunted by the loss of his soul mate, Brian is reluctant to test the waters of the dating pool. With his family all coming to visit for Christmas, he hardly has time to think about it anyway—until newcomer Trina Winter arrives in town. Now, as life moves on for everyone around him, Brian begins to wonder if he can do the same.
As they grapple with the pain of the past, Janey, Brian, and Trina will each learn to make the changes that could lead to a bright new future—and perhaps the family they’ve always dreamed of…
My first book by Joseph Pittman and I found it to be such a warm Christmas tale, I want to read more of his books. Christmas is magic in this little town and ten year old Janey has a dream. When tragedy strikes, the townspeople rally and wishes come true. Janey is able to look back in time to when her parents were still alive.
Love the cover and the Christmas magic, a heart warming story!
I received a copy of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
