Emmy Johnson was living with Frank’s parents since her father threw her out of their home, something he never would have done if her mother was still alive. She had gotten pregnant and even followed the baby’s father to
Woodstock, but he wanted nothing to do with her or the baby. Though she had miscarried, her father still would not let her return home. Emmy worked at the Piggly Wiggly with Frank’s mom. Though she hated to feel dependent on anyone, the Smith family did not make her feel like a charity case. She had wanted the baby that she lost; someone who would love her unconditionally for the rest of her life.
Arriving in Legend, he passed all the old familiar places and felt nostalgic. Turning into the driveway, he noticed the lights were out, so rather than wake everyone up, he snuck into the house and went to his bedroom. However, he was in for a surprise; there was a nude blonde sleeping in his bed. Seeing him, she screamed, waking the whole household. Eventually everyone had settled down again. But he was entranced. Coming home may not be so bad after all. Will this Christmas hold something special in store for Frank and Emmy?
A wonderfully heartwarming story, NOT QUITE CHRISTMAS is an emotion-packed historical romance of the Sixties. Set on the last Christmas of the Sixties, two strangers, who have little in common, other than a heartbroken past, find love and happiness when their worlds collide. Beautifully infused with tender romance, complex and compelling characters, an entertaining plot, witty repartee, plenty of love and a delightful ending, this novella is one that readers will hate to see end. I highly recommend NOT QUITE CHRISTMAS to anyone looking for a great story for Christmas or the whole year through.
