The Christmas Note ~ Review

From the author of The Christmas Shoes comes a new inspirational novel about an unlikely friendship between two women, but one that will change each of their lives forever.

Gretchen McCray has recently moved into an apartment with her two children to be closer to her mother, Miriam. She and her children are building a life together in a new community when a mysterious young woman, Melissa Summit, moves into the apartment next to them. She has few possessions, little personality, and keeps to herself.

One day, a local landlord who is looking for Melissa knocks on Gretchen’s door for assistance. Melissa’s mother has died and in the coming weeks the landlord needs Melissa to empty her mother’s apartment. Gretchen reaches out and offers to help, but the apartment is a gut-wrenching shamble of a home.

There is little worth saving except for a few photos and a note that is discovered on the crate beside the bed. It is unfinished but in the two scribbled lines, Melissa discovers she has a brother and a sister that she never knew about. Even more shocking, she begins to uncover family secrets that show her who she really is.

Can two very different women embark on a journey that explores a long-buried need for forgiveness, hope, and redemption?


I never would have dreamed a Christmas story could have such a great mystery mixed in it's story but The Christmas Note does! When Gretchen and Melissa meet, they could not be any different from one another but the Lord takes these women on their own journey and they become to depend on one another! This Heartwarming story will fill you with hope and is definitely one to share with others as the Christmas season is upon us!

I love Christmas stories and this one sounds so good. I haven't read Donna VanLiere before, but it sounds like she's written several other Christmas books. I will be looking for a copy of this one and most likely her others too. Nice review.
