Joy Candellaro used to love Christmas more than any other time of the year. Now, as the holiday approaches, she finds herself at loose ends. Recently divorced and estranged from her sister, she can't summon the old enthusiasm for celebrating. So without telling anyone, she buys a ticket and boards a plane bound for the rural Northwest. Yet Joy's best-laid plans go terribly awry. The plane crashes deep in the darkness of a forest. Miraculously, Joy and her fellow passengers walk away from the wreckage as the plane explodes. There, amid the towering trees, Joy makes a bold and desperate decision to leave her ordinary life behind and embark on an adventure ... just for the holidays.

Reads more like a short story. Not her best work.

One of the worst books I have ever read.
So far fetched and ridiculous. Odd and strange.
Very disappointing.

This was a beautiful, highly addictive book, I wept, it was so moving... I would highly recommend it! I plan on reading more of this author for sure!

Possibly the worst book I've ever read - I finished it out of a sense of incredulity that anything so bad could ever have been published.
