What I'm Reading 12/5/11

First of all, I want to say thank you to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for the wonderful giveaway that I won the book from that I'm currently reading. Check out her blog here:

The Reindeer Keeper by Barbara Briggs Ward.

Book description: Abbey senses something special about the little man tending to the reindeer who, along with a century-old farmhouse, a barn full of animals, and fields abounding in woods and pasture, was a gift to Abbey from a stranger. Abbey and her husband, Steve, move in just before the holidays. They have been together since the '60s, eloping when Steve returned from Vietnam. Now with Abbey's cancer in remission, they're looking forward to their boys coming home for Christmas.

Turns out this Christmas proves to be more magical than anticipated as Abbey realizes an understanding never thought possible through the rekindling of a belief rooted in childhood. Of course it's who delivers this gift on Christmas Eve that gives Abbey and Steve the strength to face their greatest challenge.

I am happy to have won this book and although I am only about 30 pages in, I am really enjoying it. I got it in the mail on Monday and figured I would read it before Christmas. Once I finish it, I'll try to write a review and post it on here.
