Back of the Book
An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, couldn't be more excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned. He's sure she'll love it. What's more romantic than Christmas in Paris?Before he can stop her, however, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their faithful dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And then--because disasters strike in threes--an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts.As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods into a winter wonderland, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid's marriage. With the holidays fast approaching, their only hope of keeping their love evergreen depends on turning the page on the past and embracing a new chapter of their future.
Evergreen is a beautifully written story about love, forgiveness and dealing with life's ups and downs. I usually only read novels about the courtship of a couple and not the issues that come after they are established, I have enjoyed the Christiansen family novels in the past so I figured I would give it a try. Many of the conflicts are common for a couple, they were easy to relate to, and true to Warrens past books. The lesson that every relationship takes effort applys even after 30 years. I am glad I took the time to read this book and loved continuing the Christiansen family novels.
