Grandma’s Christmas Wish — Fiction

by Shelley Bingham Husk

It would take the knowledge of her impending death, for Grandma’s Christmas wish to come true.

The Cavanaugh’s are a young family torn apart by tragedy, reunited by a wish. All Grandma ever wanted for Christmas was to have her family together. Twenty-nine-year-old Claire eloped to escape the memories of her parents, believing that her grandmother was responsible for their deaths. Twenty-seven-year-old Jack rarely comes home, having bought into Claire’s memories of the tragic night their parents were killed. Twenty-year-old Darby was only six when her parents died, ten when Claire ran away, and twelve when Jack left the house. Darby stayed home to take care of the grandmother who raised her. The kitchen at the Cavanaugh’s has always been the heart of the home. As Darby says, “Grandma always said, ‘You miss all the good stuff if you stay out of the kitchen.’” When the Cavanaugh children gather in the kitchen, it is a fun, humorous and sometimes sad trip down memory lane. Grandma’s Christmas Wish is a warm, humorous and touching family story that helps us discover, along with the Cavanaugh children, that God and family are all that truly matter.

A perfect book for families to read together.

“I just had the pleasure of reading “Grandma’s Christmas Wish!” It was heart-warming and fun to read. I was reminded of the funny, crazy, little stories from my family when I was growing up. This story left an optimistic touch on my thoughts and feelings.  I am really glad I got to read it early! And I will be reading it again! Don’t be left out — get your copy soon and dive in!”

“5.0 out of 5 stars — I enjoyed this story…

I enjoyed this story and was fondly reminded of some of my own family quirks and stories from my view as a small child. It was delightfully presented and leaves a taste of optimistic wonder at how things often do work out in families. I strongly recommend this book!”

“5.0 out of 5 stars — Fast read, great visual
By The Shopper  October 2, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great little book with a quick story line. It took me a couple chapters to catch up to the quick pace… Normally writers fill a book with fluff and description to stretch it out and make it “theirs” but this quick paced book gives you plenty of opportunity to use your own imagination and make your mind create its own visual. It’s a refreshing way to read. I can see this as the type of book I could give a copy to a friend or neighbor for Christmas with a gift basket of cookies and hot chocolate…it’s all a curl up and snack type of book!”
