Book Review - Promises of Tomorrow by Shelley Shepard Gray

Promises of Tomorrow (Walnut Creek #4.5)Promises of Tomorrow by Shelley Shepard Gray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis: Two years after her older brother Andy’s death, Ella and her parents are still struggling. When a couple of Andy’s childhood friends realize that Ella spent the previous Christmas alone, they decide to make this year’s holiday better. They start stopping by Ella’s home, bringing with them stories about Andy and their love for him. Meanwhile, Ella finds herself spending more and more time with one of the friend’s siblings, who just happens to be waiting for his own Christmas miracle.

My Thoughts: This was a super addition to Shelly Gray's Walnut Creek series! You don't really have to read them in order but the relationships between the characters may make more sense if you do.

You're actually getting two stories being told simultaneously! The main story is the friends on a mini vacation before the upcoming Christmas holiday and a smaller hilarious tale of a Christmas past told in short paragraphs at the top of each chapter. I loved it and was totally enthralled with both stories!

Nothing seems to be going as planned on their vacation in the woods, the cabin is crummy and not at all what was expected and then an uninvited visitor. This story while short brought so much to the table as it reminds us that things may not always go as we have planned but that's okay because sometimes The Lord puts us where we "need to be" and at "the time we need to be there!"

A warm and cozy tale about friendship, loss, and healing.
