THE GIFT A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE BY JOANNE CLANCY

THE BLURB
Julie wants only one gift this holiday season, but it’s going to take a Christmas miracle to make her wish come true.

Julie Hamilton loves Christmas. It’s her favorite time of year, from the cinnamon smell of freshly baked mince-pies to the excitement of buying gifts for family and friends, decorating the tree, and hanging stockings for Santa Claus on the mantelpiece.
This Christmas promises to be extra special because she’s expecting the perfect gift–her first baby–on Christmas Eve.
However, a chance encounter turns her world upside down, and soon, she’s praying for her very own Christmas miracle.
Can the spirit of the Christmas season and the kindness of strangers find a way to make her wish come true?

WHAT I SAY
I have never read any of Joanne Clancy books so when Joanne asked me if i like to read her new christmas book i jumped at the chance as it so nice to read a new author and i got to say what a fantastic read it was . I wished it was a bit longer it was very easy to read .

Joanne just captures you emotions it very heartbreaking but then joyful . The chapters are very short it was a real page turner for me i could not stop i just need to see what was going on i just needed to keep reading as i said before it will pull your heart strings
I was just gripped with anticipation at what was going on in this wonderful book
Christmas is a time for family you soon feel that with this book .

The plot starts with a young couple wanting for their first baby to arrive before christmas . You can feel their love we got to hear the joy they shared when their baby boy was born but then their world is turned up side down . You could feel their anger . Shock . Disbelief and despair i felt it with them by the way Joanne wrote the plot you feel all their different emotions too . I just wanted Julie and shane to get a christmas miracle for them selfs and be a happy again .

The love they had as a family on christmas day was so lovely and warm i loved that it snowed too

The other main character was casey i wanted to her more about her what terrible times this poor girl had been through i really feel she so desperately needed help .I wanted to know if she got help ? What happen to her ? Was she ok ?

Her parents were alcoholics her life was so bad she had nothing she had lost her baby and she turn to drink cause that all she knew . Her life was very near rock bottom . She was so low she move to Ireland to start a new life was she happy there ?

Then one day she did some thing so bad did she know what she was doing ? What was happing to her ?
The book just so good you will be suffering right there with then all my heart just when out to them all
It a heart full read if you were in that situation what would you of done ? Would you cope ?
It a nice christmas book but it got a dark twist but then a bright star shines again just a nice book to read
I would love you all to read my only criticism is it to short i would of like a bit more
You could feel all the atmosphere in this book it very well written
5 star a great christmas read nice for a short read with a nice orange hot chocolate at night as a quick read
