The Christmas Angel Project by Melody Carlson


Five women have been meeting together for many years, each with a different background, but all with a love of conversation and community. However, when a key member of their group passes away, the members feel lost and disorganized. A final parting gift of their leader, however, encourages them to begin a new project—the Christmas Angel Project. Each woman must learn how she can contribute to her family, friends, or even complete strangers during this Christmas season. As they learn to give and share, they grow closer to each other and ultimately to their Savior.

This short story is sweet and a perfect book for a snowy afternoon around the Christmas season. Each of the characters is unique and allows readers to be able to identify with at least one of their situations. The book read a little too much like a novella for me in the sense that it was short and everything wrapped up perfectly by the end. However, I think it would be a lovely story to enjoy by a crackling fire with a cup of cocoa, as it is an easy read and flows well. I recommend it to those who enjoy seasonal short stories!

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
