The Christmas Dog by Melody Carlson (Christmas Book 4)
Then Avery shows up.. her slightly grown, troubled granddaughter who is on the lamb from home. What is Betty to do with a mixed up kid?
Add to the mix a scruffy dog who seems to belong to no one and everyone and you have the makings of a funny and sweet story with lots of lessons to be learned.
As believers, we are to love each other .. love our neighbors.. love our enemies.. and to consider others over ourselves.. but that loving is often easier said than done. Betty is learning that first hand. And God, who works in mysterious way, uses a worn out fence and a scraggly stray to teach her.
