A Christmas Homecoming by Maryann Diorio

Requirement for this novella: 1 or 2  boxes of tissues.

Why didn't anyone warn me this would be a tear jerker?  This is a novella of redemption, faith, and hope and forgiveness.

This a short contemporary Christian novella.   
This novella tells of a teenager who vanished after leaving a note for her parents. Her parents have searched for her in vain but never found her.  Years later, the heroine decides to come home with her children for Christmas after couple of misfortunes in another country.
This is the story of a family dealing with loss, anger, forgiveness, faith, love, hope, compassion, understanding, and most of all, redemption.

This is really well written for a short novella.  I was amazed how the author was able to go back and forth between the mother and the daughter in each chapter including another family member.  She was able to tie everything together.

Be sure to have tissues ready.

Low 4 stars for a novella

I received this short ARC from Pelican Book Group through Net Galley for my unbiased and honest review. Thank you!
