Can This Be Christmas? – Debbie Macomber – Book Review #49

Can This Be Christmas is a lovely, feel-good Christmas story that only has one thing wrong with it; it’s too short!

Debbie Macomber is the queen of the Christmas stories. I really enjoyed this one and I need to see if it has been made into a TV movie. If not, it should be 🙂

Can This Be Christmas

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads

In this short hardcover, Debbie Macomber shows how a group of train travelers stranded in a New Hampshire depot on Christmas Eve find the true meaning of Christmas.

Len Dawber, a navy man stationed in Maine, is desperate to get home to Texas, where he intends to propose to his sweetheart Amy. Cathy Norris, devastated by her husband’s recent death, doesn’t expect to enjoy the holiday with her daughter’s family in Boston. Burned-out computer salesman Matt McHugh, emotionally estranged from his wife and two kids, nurses his resentment and contemplates divorce. Kelly and Nick Berry fear they’re losing the closeness they once shared as they struggle to adjust to their new roles as adoptive parents.

When a blizzard forces these characters, and several others, all cranky and argumentative, to spend the night before Christmas together, they find that a little kindness and the courage to open their hearts go a long way toward making it a Christmas to remember.
