Book Review: My Christmas Dream

Article by: Marilyn Miles

Jorden Butler grew up on a farm near the small town of Tuke’s Valley, Washington. When she gets a job at a bookstore in the nearby city of Vancouver, she and a coworker dream of one day having their own bookstore. Jorden decides to work toward a business degree, but then loses her job when the bookstore closes. Could Jorden’s dream of having her own business be just that—a dream?

Gilbert Gibson also grew up in Tuke’s Valley, but when his mother died his senior year of high school, he moved away to work in construction. Now he’s a handyman who can do just about anything. Gilbert returns to Tuke’s Valley after the death of his stepfather to sell the family home and see if he can find anything of his mother’s. A former classmate asks him to look at a bookstore his wife and her business partner just purchased and give them an estimate on repairs. Gilbert agrees and when he walks inside the bookstore, he sees a woman hanging precariously from a ladder. He rushes up to help, just as she falls.
