    Heartwarming Christmas Tale

    This is a story with all the feels!! From page one, The Christmas Table by Donna VanLiere, book ten in her Christmas Hope series, grabbed me and held me hostage until I turned the last page, finishing the story, wanting more. This is a heartwarming and inspirational holiday story; you might need to keep those tissues nearby. The story begins in June of 1972 when John Creighton decides to build a kitchen table for his wife Joan. Prior to this decision he had made picture frames, but was determined to have the table ready for Thanksgiving dinner. With this deadline, Joan becomes inspired to cook something delicious for that first meal; turning to the recipes her mother gave her when she married. Fast forward 40 years to June 2012 when Lauren Mabrey discovers she is pregnant. With the help of her friends from Glory’s Place, everyone pitches in to help Lauren and Trey prepare their home for the baby. Visiting the local furniture builder, Lauren finds a table that he bought years ago at a garage sale and only recently refinished. Once the table arrives at her home, Lauren discovers a drawer under the table which contains a stack of recipe cards. Growing up in foster homes, Lauren never learned to cook and is fascinated as she reads through the card. Each card has a personal note, written by the mother for her daughter making Lauren wonder where they lived. They also make her feel connected to this mother and daughter and wants to make the mother proud. Alternating between 1972 and 2012 as Joan battles breast cancer and Lauren learns to cook as she prepares for her baby’s arrival. Along the way, each is blessed by the people, friends and strangers, around them and in their community. As Christmas approaches, Lauren is hopeful to unlock the mystery behind table and bring happiness to the family who loss it. Ms. VanLiere writes to the soul; the soul of her characters and the soul of her readers. This wonderful, heartwarming story was emotional, moving, tear inducing, filled with wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters that is must read. I highly recommend The Christmas Table to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
