Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Three mothers enjoy a friendship sparked by their shared journey of raising their autistic little boys. Now as one of the mothers, Holly, is struggling through her first holiday season since her divorce, she’ll need all the encouragement she can get in A Christmas of Hope by author Danyelle Ferguson.
Gee. It’d be hard for me to describe the nuggets I liked most in this story without giving away all the good stuff. It’s a little pet peeve of mine when book blurbs and such basically spell out the moral of a short story because there isn’t a whole lot of material to pull the descriptions from.
But I’ll say that I appreciate the correlations the three mothers find in their situations to that of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Whether or not you’re a parent, the overall principles Holly and her friends share with each other are encouraging and universal principles for life.
Besides that, this quick read really put me in the mood for a warm mug of Christmassy cocoa or another such treat.
