Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.
As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?
What a treat to start off the holiday season with this charming little novel! Anita Higman delivers a sweet romance set in days gone by that will touch the readers hearts and have them humming Christmas melodies all day long.
I enjoyed the interaction between the characters - the blossoming love between Frannie and Charlie is just a delight to watch unfurled as the story progresses. I also admired the sub-story of how Frannie was aware of the civil rights troubles that were brewing at that time, and how she stood up for her friends and neighbors.
"A Merry Little Christmas" is a sweet way to start your holiday reading! I highly recommend it!
