A Merry Little Christmas {Book Review}


A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman

About the book

Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.

Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. 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?

My Thoughts

I just love Christmas! The decorating, Christmas music, our favorite Christmas movies, attending advent and Christmas eve services. All of it!

One of my very favorite things to do over the Christmas season is to grab a steaming cup of hot cocoa, my favorite snuggly throw and curl up with a wonderful Christmas book, turn on the Christmas tree lights and start reading!

A Merry Little Christmas is a great little book to do just that!  Franny and Charlie are such opposite characters their unique story comes to life as the story unfolds.  Set in the early 1960’s this wonderful little story captures the time period and the characters so well. Franny is such has such an independence about her and Charlie the wanna be farmer is genuine in his willingness to learn about the farm.

This is a wonderful Christmas story and shows that love can be found when it is least expected.
