Against the irresistible backdrop of Christmas in New England, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin creates a heartfelt and memorable novel—a story of reunited family, new beginnings, and unconditional love—the best gift of all. To outsiders, Appleville, New Hampshire, is a storybook small town complete with a little white church and a gazebo on the village green. To Gincy Gannon Luongo, it was a place to escape from as quickly as she could. Since she moved away twenty years ago, Appleville has been her hometown in name only. But at her brother Tommy's urging, Gincy is coming back to visit their recently widowed mother in the weeks leading up to Christmas—and she's bringing her teenage daughter, Tamsin, with her. Ellen Gannon, once feisty and strong-willed, is mired in depression. Tommy isn't doing much better. Gincy starts restoring order to the household in her usual practical way, but it's clear that imagined slights and lingering resentments have created deep chasms between them all. With each day, she realizes she has seriously undervalued her mother and her brother. Only now, with the support of her husband, daughter, and best friends, does she see how much she may have missed. For beyond the surface of every family and every picturesque town is something more complicated but infinitely more rewarding—a tapestry of those small acts of acceptance, love, and loyalty that could transform this Christmas into the best Gincy's ever known.

The theme of this book took me by surprise, as I haven't seen it used often, especially in a Christmas story. It was delightfully well done and I enjoyed the discovery. A woman matures and loses some of her conceitedness and rediscovers the value of her family, even though the other members seem to not be as successful or as intelligent as she is. She learns to see the other family members through others' eyes instead of through her own experience and strengthens bonds and grows as a person.
