Keeping Christmas(A Novel) by Dan Walsh…
What”s the book about?
For the first time since their children were born, empty nesters Judith and Stan Winters spent Thanksgiving without the kids, and it’s looking like Christmas will be the same. Judith can’t bring herself to even start decorating for the holiday; her kids always hung the first ornaments on the tree, ornaments they had made each year since they were toddlers. Sure they were strange-looking–some could be called downright ugly–but they were tradition. A tradition she’s heartbroken to miss this year.
With Judith refusing to decorate the bare spruce tree in their living room, Stan knows something must be done. And his only hope for saving the holiday is found in a box of handmade ornaments.
Fan-favorite Dan Walsh invites readers to enjoy this nostalgic Christmas story that celebrates all of our most cherished seasonal traditions, especially the importance of family. Readers will join in remembering the things that make their own Christmas season so special.

My opinion: 5 stars out of 5.
Feels like Christmas is at my door steps, when I opened the package. The breeze of chilly wind, and the smell of burning wood. With the hot cocoa in my hand (I wished, my diet doesn’t include cocoa or sugar), and the new copy of this book on my lap, the time was perfect to read this novel.
Thanksgiving and Christmas is coming and Judith doesn’t know what to do. She lost all delight in shopping, present hunting, and decorating the house for the family Holiday time. Because these things she was doing every year with her children, Anna, Brandon,and Suzanne, her little babies, but now they were all grown up, married, with kids on their own. What made her sad that they moved to different states, and she really hoped to see them on Christmas time, to hug her grand-kids, but it turned out the money issue didn’t let her “kids” to come, not this Christmas. She fell into depression. Her husband Stan, and her best friend Betty tried to cheer her up. Nothing worked.
But on Christmas Eve a miracle happened which brought the whole family together.
