There is a certain charm to Christmas stories that brings joy to our hearts. One Christmas: An Anglesey Story by Karen J. Mossman is one such tale. This novella follows the story of Tina and her family. Tina, a young woman from the small town of Holyhead in Anglesey, an island off the coast of Wales, loves everything about Christmas and all it entails, including shopping with her sister Dawn, having family dinners, and the overall sense of joy that epitomizes the holiday season. However, on one Christmas Eve, her father passes away unexpectedly, and Tina, her mother, and her sister feel as if Christmas has lost all of its joy and warmth. As time passes and the family tries to recover from their tragedy, Tina will soon find herself in a relationship that may bring back the spirit of Christmas for her and her family.
Karen J. Mossman tells a cozy Christmas story full of heart, charm, and romance. One Christmas is just the type of book you need to read before the upcoming holidays. This is a story about love, family, and the process of letting go of your grief. Tina is a young woman who loses a part of herself when her father dies on Christmas Eve, and it isn't until she falls in love that she and her family regain their sense of belonging during Christmas. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and think that everyone else will feel the same. This is a heartwarming tale that embodies the spirit of Christmas.
