About The Book:
Hope finds the hopeless when a storm hits.
It's Christmas weekend 1949, and despite the threat of a storm, the townspeople of Frost are determined to continue their holiday traditions, if only as a means to forget the war that they had all just suffered through. But the suffering hasn't ended for Dottie Morgan who lost her only son in the war. She's preparing to wallow in her isolation for the weekend, when Violet, nearly a spinster at age 29, dares to make a request that will force Dottie to publicly revive the memory of her dead son.
When a storm traps the two women at home with a strange young man who has an unbelievable confession and a neighbor with more to do with Violet's past than she would like, no one can predict how this Christmas will give them all a second chance.
Susan May Warren is one of my favorite Christian authors for one simple reason - I know that when I pick up on of her books, I am going to be totally pulled into the story and entertained. Her new Christmas story, "Baby, It's Cold Outside," is no exception to that rule.
Susan's story of five people trapped in an unimaginable blizzard the day before Christmas Eve 1949 is an emotion-packed, fast-moving tale that will warm your heart and renew your faith in people and the power of God's love. Her characters in this novel include an older generation couple, a younger generation couple and one little boy who pulls them all together with the Christmas spirit, and the post-World War II setting is just perfect for a story of personal renewal and rededication, much as the whole country was going through at the time. I also enjoyed how Susan pulled in references to many old classic Christmas tunes throughout the story.
I know it's early for Christmas stories - or is it? Christmas decorations seem to be going up earlier and earlier, and with the bleak attitude of the world today, maybe we do need an infusion of early Christmas spirit. Look no further than "Baby, It's Cold Outside" to give you that much-need spark!
I highly recommend this book!
