Donna Vanliere

先日、Donna Vanliere の 『The Christmas Shoes』 を読んだところだが、実は買ったときから何度もトライしては投げ出していた本で、そこを我慢して、今年はようやく読み終えたという状況だったのだ。

しかし、翌年出版された 『The Christmas Blessing』 も買ってあるし、今年もまた 『The Christmas Hope』 を買ってしまった。1作目は面白くないかもしれないけど、次は面白いかも?などと思って・・・。べつに続き物というわけでもないのだから、律儀に毎年買わなくてもいいとは思うんだけど。(^^;

From Publishers Weekly
Nathan Andrews, who at eight bought shoes for his dying mother (The Christmas Shoes) and as a medical student fell in love with a young heart patient (The Christmas Blessing), takes a backseat in Van Liere's latest Christmas confection. The focus this time is on Patti and Mark Addison. Patti is a devoted social worker, but she can't seem to feel anything for her handsome pilot husband (they sleep in separate bedrooms), and she can't understand why anyone could feel happy during the holidays. Leave it to a child to teach Patti the meaning of Christmas. Emily—who believes in angels and is possibly the gentlest, sweetest child to ever cavort across a novel's pages since Little Nell—quickly insinuates herself into the Addison hearts. Another child's illness introduces the Addison gang to Nathan, now a doctor expecting his own first child. Too much coincidence binds their stories together, but Van Liere serves up another heart-tugging holiday tale. (Oct.)
