The Christmas Joy Ride – Melody Carlson
Joy is just that – full of joy. Although she is closer to 100 than to 50, she sets off on an adventure as she moves to her a place closer to her sons. Miranda is her much younger friend/neighbor. Joy convinces Miranda to take a break from life’s difficult circumstances and join her. They journey across country together while putting Joy’s detailed plan into action.
They hit some bumps along the way. Some bumps are much bigger than others!
Things I liked about this story:
- Joy is pouring her life into younger Miranda.
- Joy shares what she has been given.
- Miranda learns from Joy.
- Giving of yourself – and your stuff – just feels good!
- You can show love even when it isn’t easy! Who knows what people are going through in their lives -- show love!
I love watching Christmas Hallmark movies. This book could be added to and turned into a cute movie! It is a fun sweet read! This would even make a great gift book! Hardcover!!!
