Day 3 – The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick
This one is a Heart-warmer for the Holidays. Martha is a pleaser. She puts everyone ahead of herself, and has given up so much to do so — a fiance, a house, a career. But she’s content. Or, at least, she tells herself she is. She never complains; not that she has time to, what with all the favours she’s always doing everyone. It seems she’s in a bit of a rut, until the arrival of a mysterious book changes everything. A collection of stories Martha recognizes because SHE wrote them as a little girl, with a dedication to her from the author. Who’s the author, you ask? Well, that would be her long passed grandmother. Only, the publication date suggests grandma might not be as gone as Martha was led to believe. Is she out there? Can she find her? Is it possible that, after all these years, they’ll be celebrating Christmas together again?
Recipe: Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies, because Martha’s the type to meet all of your dietary restrictions.
