I should have known that this book would be a joy to read by just the title. I read this in one day but enjoyed the "ride" to the very last page. Joy and Miranda despite their age difference needed each other. Joy had a plan and Miranda, with some hesitation, joined her. This a great read for Christmas or anytime of year where you need an uplifting story of how two people spread Christmas cheer. The ending was almost predictable but I didn't care. I enjoyed every chapter. This almost could be a continuing series and it really is not a bad idea, Melody Carlson.
I finished this delightful story with a smile on my face and a determination to spread some JOY of my own this holiday season. I will start spreading joy by giving this book to my mother to read. Highly recommend!

The last page was turned and I wasn't ready to say goodbye to David, Birdy, Katrina and all the other wonderful characters of this book. But wait- there will be a sequel of the town of Stoney Ridge. I will be waiting to see how all the storyline play out.
This is a great book with valuable lessons to be learned. You must stand firm in your beliefs. Don't take the easy way out. To forgive and to be forgiven is needed to move forward in a positive direction. GOD has a plan for you. He will guide you and protect you from harm if you let him.
David knew that to be a good father he needed to read the Bible. He prayed to make the right decisions in his life and for everyone in his community.
I felt a sense of peace reading this book. A joy to read.
