Christmas Wishes is a sweet little short story perfect for the season. I love a good whirlwind romance, and this is definitely that. The story will make you smile and maybe even shed a tear or two. Readers get adorable characters and the message that when life knocks you down you can still stand again and find new happiness.
Three years earlier Lee lost her son in a tragic accident and a divorce from her husband followed. On her own Lee searches for a reason to live again. On Christmas Eve she is visiting the gravesite of her son when she meets Al. He is visiting the grave of his late wife and mother of his young daughter. Later on Lee unexpectedly runs into Al and his little girl.
Al has been raising his little girl since his wife’s death. Although he is empty and unhappy, he must put on a brave front for his child.
Although Lee will always cherish the memory of her beloved son, she has maybe found a new happiness and at Christmas nonetheless?
For most, Christmas is a time for family, love, life, dreams, and wishes—but not for Lee Llewellyn, a mother who has recently lost her son to an accident and her husband to the resentment it caused.
In a chance encounter, she is given the gift of company on Christmas, but is she ready to move forward and start living again?
