The Christmas Gift by Beth Prentice

36191291Goodreads Synopsis

Lizzie’s back! It’s her first Christmas with Riley and time for a new tradition. This year it’s a real tree that Lizzie wants. So a visit to ‘Happy Christmas Trees’ is on the to do list. And with the help of Earl, the elderly gentleman with a limp, she even finds the perfect tree.

But the tree comes with a mystery gift – a beautiful etched glass bauble that sends prisms of light dancing around the room.
But why did Lizzie get the bauble? And why has no one at ‘Happy Christmas Trees’ ever heard of Earl?

These holidays Lizzie will stumble along a journey where the past merges with the present, and where she learns the true meaning of Christmas.



Once you read this novella, you’ll understand why I used a Christmas bauble for rating purposes.


Christmas is one of my favourite festivals and this one had it in spades. Not just the celebration but also the excitement and preparations leading to The Day.

The mystery (if we can even call the story that) was sweet. It showed that people love and there is forever love only if it is true.

I absolutely loved it!
