Finding Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn–Spoiler Free Book Review

Bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn brings readers a poignant Christmas novella about a woman, desperate for a place to belong, who finds herself in London a few days before Christmas, looking for the father she never knew.

In FINDING FATHER CHRISTMAS, Miranda Carson’s search for her father takes a turn she never expected when she finds herself in London with only a few feeble clues to who he might be. Unexpectedly welcomed into a family that doesn’t recognize her, and whom she’s quickly coming to love, she faces a terrible decision. Should she reveal her true identity and destroy their idyllic image of her father? Or should she carry the truth home with her to San Francisco and remain alone in this world? Whatever choice she makes during this London Christmas will forever change the future for both herself and the family she can’t bear to leave.

Robin Jones Gunn brilliantly combines lyrical writing and unforgettable characters to craft a story of longing and belonging that will stay with readers long after they close the pages of this book.

Quick Thoughts:
This was the perfect novella to kick off the Christmas season! It was cute and heartwarming, and it also contained a good amount of Faith content. This is the first novella of the Father Christmas trilogy, and I can’t wait to read the next one! It has also been made into a movie on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel, which I am looking forward to watching soon. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a cute, heartwarming, Christmas read.

5/5 Stars
