Keeping Christmas By Dan Walsh

For the first time since their children were born, empty nesters Judith and Stan Winters spent Thanksgiving without the kids, and it's looking like Christmas will be the same. Judith can't bring herself to even start decorating for the holiday; her kids always hung the first ornaments on the tree, ornaments they had made each year since they were toddlers. Sure they were strange-looking--some could be called downright ugly--but they were tradition. A tradition she's heartbroken to miss this year.
With Judith refusing to decorate the bare spruce tree in their living room, Stan knows something must be done. And his only hope for saving the holiday is found in a box of handmade ornaments.
Fan-favorite Dan Walsh invites readers to enjoy this nostalgic Christmas story that celebrates all of our most cherished seasonal traditions, especially the importance of family. Readers will join in remembering the things that make their own Christmas season so special.

He has won three Carol Awards, and three of his novels were finalists for RT Book Reviews Inspirational Book of the Year. A member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Dan served as a pastor for 25 years. He lives with his wife in the Daytona Beach area, where he's busy researching and writing his next novel.

This was a little bit different than most of Walsh's books. I have read them ALL. That being said I read it in one sitting and was in awe of Stan he was every women's dream husband. I loved the ending I wont give anything way but you kind of know what's going to happen once you get into the book.
I love that is was not a book about a prefect family Thanksgiving and the surprise  that takes place in the end was so worth it to me.
I gave this book 4 stars and I recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
