Review: All I Have to Give (Melody Carlson)

This story is a modern version of O. Henry’s Christmas short story The Gift of the Magi. I liked Carlson’s story better, possibly because she added more characters and subplots. I’d love to read a sequel with some of the minor characters. 🙂

Anna and Michael have been trying for years without success to have a baby. Now in her late thirties, Anna has given up on the hope of motherhood after heartbreaking miscarriages and shattered dreams. As Christmas nears, she has to consider the possibility that it might be time to empty out the nursery and convert it to a guest room. Amidst her heartache, Anna secretly struggles with strange health problems that have her very worried. But, as often happens at Christmastime, there are miracles in store for Anna and Michael. As each tries to give the other the perfect Christmas gift the magic of Christmas is working its way into their lives. And what each of them unwraps for Christmas will surprise everyone.
