A Gift to Last by Debbie Macomber

A Gift to Last includes two heartwarming Christmas tales.

The first in Can This Be Christmas. I loved this story and could see it made into a Christmas special with ease. It’s December 24 and holiday travelers are searching any mode of transportation to arrive home in time for the holidays. A train lode of weary travelers find themselves stranded in a small New Hampshire depot in a snowstorm. Tempers flare… stress is high… but somehow good will wins out and the strangers spend a Christmas together that they will never forget.

Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are three angels who love to come to earth, but when they do then often bring mischief with them. After much begging, Gabriel has agreed to give them a new assignment only it isn’t what they bargained for. Greg Bennett is at the bottom of the pit. The family business he inherited on the verge of folding… he is in the midst of his third divorce… he has no children… no friends… no family… he has alienated them all. So when he finds himself slipping into a church and offering up a fragile prayer, he never dreams God will really answer… or how!
