The day that she was approached by a gentleman from an American modeling agency was the start of a new journey for Natalie.  She became a famous model.  Her desire to find her birth mother was placed in God's hands.

Natalie's favorite time of the year is Christmas.  She loved the decorations and watching the faces of people as the Christmas spirit took hold of them.  Her most favorite of all was the big tree that was placed at Rockefeller Center in New York City, her home now.  This year, Natalie seemed to be more excited.  For the last three years, she has enjoyed watching a handsome young man as he made his way to see the big tree as soon as it was put up.  He seemed to enjoyed the beauty as much as she did.  All through the year, she would daydream about him.  Would he be there this year?  Would there be a chance for a conversation?

Noel has watched the tree that would grace the Rockefeller Center grow since he was a young child.  This years tree has a special place in his heart, for it has grown on his familys land in New Jersey.  Since living in New York City, Noel has always gone the day after the tree has been placed.  He loves to sit and enjoy the beauty of the tree before decorations and lights are placed.  This year hold a different anticipation, for the last three years, Noel has watched a beautiful young lady and her dog as they came to enjoy the tree.  Throughout the years, Noel has dreamed of her and this year he is not going to let the opportunity to meet her slip by. 

Will Noel and Natalie finally meet after three years of dreaming of each other?  Natalie has a strong faith in God.  Noel has been brought up to believe in God.  He know it in his head but in his heart, he not so sure.  Can Natalie help Noel open his heart to God?  And will Natalie's search for her birth mother become a reality?

Melanie Panagiotopoulos has written A FAIRY-TALE ROMANCE for the novella LOVE FROM GREECE.  This author has taken two individualls from different backgrounds and shown the reader that God will direct our lives.  But the ultimate move has to come from us.  Reading about Natalie and Noel and the choices that they made will show the reader that God is interested in our everyday life.  The characters were so easy to follow, that I felt like I was walking along side them.  I am pleased to give this author a 4.5 blue ribbon rating.
