The Christmas Table by Donna VanLiere

The Christmas Table (Christmas Hope, #10)

Christmas Hope #10

It’s 1972 and John is determined to finish a table for his wife Joan. He has zero experience in building tables but he swears he can finish it before Thanksgiving.

While he is doing that Joan is re-discovering her mother’s recipes. Creating the most delicious things to go on that table. But then cancer strikes and everything is up in the air.

In 2012, Lauren Mabrey discovers she is having a baby. Everyone at Glory’s Place is helping out. The house needs to be furnished and a trip to a local builder nets them a handmade table with a hidden drawer full of recipes and notes about them and what was going on at the time.

Lauren begins to try out the recipes and in no time has become a cook!

Told in two different times by two different women, this one had me crying! I had no idea this ending was coming and it was so beautiful!

Very Well Done!
