review 1: On Christmas Eve (and their 20th anniversary) Marlee and Jacob set out to meet with their lawyer and sign their divorce papers. They'd tried everything -- counseling, retreats, countless books, but Marlee believes it's a lost cause. Their love has died. "When do we tell the children?" It begins.But on their way to the lawyer's office, the snowstorm picks up and the car crashes. Marlee finds her way to a nearby house where an old man takes her in, keeps her safe and warm and shares with her three golden pots which reveal the past, present and future of her marriage.I'm sure you can guess the ending, but it's not about that exactly. "It's about making good choices. It's putting one foot in front of the other on a good path, on that will lead you to a place down the road y... moreou can be proud of, no matter what response you get."I recommend this book for anyone who is married. It's a very quick read -- I read it in just a couple of hours.
review 2: This is a charming, heartwarming story of Jacob and Marlee--a couple on the brink of divorce. On the way to the attorney's office Marlee's life spins out of control and she's forced to face new choices that may change her life forever.In this modern retelling of the original Christmas Carol, Marlee is given a glimpse of what was, what is, and what might be. The magical vapors of the past, present and possible future warm Marlee's heart and show her that choices are like each snowflake, and her life can change with each one.This story, easily read in an hour or two, will be a Christmas staple at my home each year. Though it deals with marital issues, readers are also able to apply the story to any hardships or tough roads they might be facing. I loved this book, and shamelessly shed a tear or two. An inspirational story of love, redemption, and most of all--HOPE.Publisher: Moody Publishing
