As a result, reader Sue Brasel reached out through my contact form and told me how much she enjoyed the book. I asked her to either send me a review or leave one on Amazon or Smashwords. She responded that she read it on Bookshare, which doesn’t have an option for leaving reviews, and sent me the following. Thank you, Sue.
This is a book of a hopeful Thanksgiving that blends into a peaceful, cherished Christmas scenario. The characters have lifelike qualities with believable attitudes.

Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.
After some research, Natalie learns that people with dementia often have vivid memories of past events. Still not wanting to believe what her grandmother has told her, she finds her biological father online. The resemblance between them is undeniable. Not knowing what else to do, she shows his photo and website to her parents.
Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.
Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?
