'Emma's Christmas' by Lynette Marie

'Emma's Christmas: A heartwarming story of love and redemption' brought a range of emotions, but the title sums it up. A holiday tale, it warmed my heart that two childhood friends turned sweethearts separated by war received a chance to rectify their relationship. Emma's poor and impetuous choices brought much pain and heartache to this couple. With help from family and fate, they are allowed to come together and decide if they can heal their friendship. I liked the historical setting and descriptions. Characters held my attention, and I believed in them. The author did a good job hinting at intimacy without graphic details. The plot and pace pleased me, and I thoroughly enjoyed Lynette Marie's story.
