In 'Songs of Christmas' we meet Amanda who has studied cello and longs for a job with an orchestra in order to use her talents. She comes home still looking for a job and a bit discouraged. Will she ever be able to use her musical talent and will she ever find a marriage like her father has?
One of the most unlikeable characters in Cape Light is Lillian. She is set in her ways and yet her daughters and husband have such patience with her - one just longs for someone to tell her to stop her critical ways. Her husband has a heart attack and also breaks an arm and a leg. Lillian insists he recover at home instead of a rehab center. A nurse, originally from El Salvador comes to help and has to withstand Lillian's horrid behavior. She is a widow with 2 children to support and a mother too. How will they survive Lillian and a violent storm that is added into the plot?
It is a storyline that has much more to it, despite the fact that you know what is going to happen, but it is still an enjoyable read. There is a Christian element with the Christmas holiday and many of the activities that center around the village church.
Needless to say this is a Christmas story and one that shows the spirit of love and charity and best of all forgiveness. Cape Light is a wonderful place to spend part of your holiday or actually any time of the year. You would enjoy meeting some interesting characters and the charming place they live in.
