Dr Noah and the Sugar Plum Fairy by Carla Rossi
College senior and not-so-ex-ballerina Jane Trumbull is home for Christmas break. She welcomes the joyful chaos of a happy family holiday – then the rollercoaster of emotions begins.
Veterinarian Dr. Noah Barron hopes his return to Texas and his new clinic will help him forget about his dark days in California. But he can’t outrun unresolved issues and doesn’t know how lonely he really is – until he meets slightly clumsy Un-Plain Jane.
Can Jane and Noah learn to share who they really are and what they really want? And can they allow God to send joy after sorrow, hope for hidden dreams, and healing for past wounds?
This lovely Christmas story by Carla Rossi had me both crying and laughing. Jane and Noah are so real they leap off the page. Full of the Christmas spirit from baking to lights to the Christmas ballet, with a supporting cast of animals, this story is sure to delight.
