"The Christmas Women" by Elyse Douglas

Book Description....

"When 38-year old Trudie Parks learns that her high school drama teacher is seriously ill, she immediately contacts her two best friends in high school, Kristen and Mary Ann. Together, they'd been known as "The Christmas Girls." They'd produced and starred in the annual high school Christmas show, which their teacher, Mrs. Childs, had directed.
Determined to show their love for Mrs. Childs, they plan a 20-year reunion to recreate the Christmas show for her. What they don't anticipate is the complicated emotions this provokes, as former sweethearts appear and rekindle romance, painful memories and the sting of unrealized dreams. All three women must reassess their lives and their friendships, while struggling to produce the show, even while Mrs. Childs seems to grow weaker by the day.
As Christmas Eve approaches, The Christmas Women prepare for an event that will take them and the audience to the farthest reaches of the human heart and resonate throughout the rest of their lives."
 
 
What I liked about the read....

This was quite a interesting story of three women who had been childhood friends and were known as 'The Christmas Girls' now twenty years later are back together again in their hometown due to a  teacher, Mrs. Childs who  is ill.   Trudie, Kristen and Mary Ann have come back to perform their Christmas show.  This will turn out to be some reunion where alumnus and their families.  Many old feelings will  come about as they put together this Christmas show as there will be some twist and turns  going on.   With saying that I will stop here and say pick up "The Christmas Women" to see how this is presented by this author to the reader.  From the read you will see how good this story is especially during the Christmas holidays and how these three ladies were able to come together to give a excellent successful production for their teacher.  In the end you will be given a wonderful Christmas story.  Would I recommend?  YES!
