    One thought on “The Last Christmas Ride: A Novella”

    1. I find it rather challenging to review a book, or in this case a novella, based on a true story. Your gut instinct would be if you absolutely loved the life or lives being shared to give it a five. And alternately much lower if you didn't like one of the individuals in the story (with this story I was not a fan of mother Blackburn, at allI never saw somebody shirk on their duties so much or place blame on a blame-free recipient so cruelly).So my rating will not be based on how I feel about the l [...]

    2. I am not exactly sure how I got this book. I think one of my children brought it home from school. I chose to read this book because it is a local author. Very well detailed, and an interesting biography of local people.

    3. Family is more important than things. Edie sacrificed most of her life for her brothers, more than most people would. In spite of that, she received fotune and fame. She is a special, wonderful, example of Christian giving and excellence.

    4. Wow, has this woman been through a lot! Losing her 3 brothers and having cancer 3 times. Sheesh! :( The story was interesting, even though I don't buy into the idea of "god's plan" and bad things happening for a reason.

    5. 2.5 stars. This storyline isn't terrible, but it isn't well written. The writing feels very repetitive. The story is heartfelt about love, loss, life's struggles and disappointments. A quick read.

    6. This is a novella that was a great little find. Thought provoking about life, relationships, death, and God's eternal plan. This is based on true events in the author's life. Check this one out.
