Against the irresistible backdrop of Christmas in New
England, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin creates a
heartfelt and memorable novel—a story of reunited family,
new beginnings, and unconditional love—the best gift of all.
To outsiders, Appleville, New Hampshire, is a storybook
small town complete with a little white church and a gazebo
on the village green. To Gincy Gannon Luongo, it was a place
to escape from as quickly as she could. Since she moved away
twenty years ago, Appleville has been her hometown in name
only. But at her brother Tommy’s urging, Gincy is coming
back to visit their recently widowed mother in the weeks
leading up to Christmas—and she’s bringing her teenage
daughter, Tamsin, with her.
Ellen Gannon, once feisty and strong-willed, is mired in
depression. Tommy isn’t doing much better. Gincy starts
restoring order to the household in her usual practical way,
but it’s clear that imagined slights and lingering
resentments have created deep chasms between them all. With
each day, she realizes she has seriously undervalued her
mother and her brother. Only now, with the support of her
husband, daughter, and best friends, does she see how much
she may have missed. For beyond the surface of every family
and every picturesque town is something more complicated but
infinitely more rewarding—a tapestry of those small acts of
acceptance, love, and loyalty that could transform this
Christmas into the best Gincy’s ever known.
