Review & Blog Tour: The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts

The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts
Book Description: On a blustery afternoon, Kylie Gray wanders into an antique shop and buys an enchanting snow globe. “There’s a story behind that snow globe,” the antique dealer tells her. The original owner, he explains, was a German toymaker who lost his wife and son right before Christmas. When the grieving widower received the handcrafted snow globe as a Christmas gift, he saw the image of a beautiful woman beneath the glass—a woman who would come into his life, mend his broken heart and bring him back to the world of the living. For years, the snow globe has passed from generation to generation, somehow always landing in the hands of a person in special need of a Christmas miracle.

Kiley could use a miracle herself. This year, all she wants for Christmas is someone to love. A hopeful shake leads her on an adventure that makes a believer out of her. When Kylie shares the story of the snow globe with her best friends—two women with problems of their own—they don’t believe it. But they’re about to discover that at Christmastime, sometimes the impossible becomes possible and miracles really do come true.

About the Author: Sheila Roberts lives in the Pacific Northwest. When she’s not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences, she can be found writing about the things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.

Here's What I Think: This book was a refreshing reminder to stop, look and listen in our own lives. So many times we become so absorbed in the present situation, much like Kylie, that we aren't able to see the solutions around us. This story is magical and mystical and really got me into the spirit of the holiday season. Though this book is on the shorter side, it is definitely a complete story. This book is perfect for a December Book Club Selection as well as a holiday gift for a book lover. Sheila Roberts has been one of my fave authors for a while now and this book just reintegrates my good choice =).
