A Merry Little Christmas


A Merry Little Christmas by Anita Higman  is such a sweet story that takes place in Oklahoma leading up to Christmas. Franny, a sweet farm girl used to running the farm alone, is quite taken aback when a handsome, well-dressed man shows up wanting to buy the farm. It had been for sale for over a decade and Franny had kept the selling price high. I believe she knew the farm was worth every penny she was asking but I also believe she thought a high asking price would keep it from selling so she could pursue her dreams of being a radio deejay. Regardless of her reasons the farm now had a new owner and Charlie wished to hire Franny to teach him what he needed to know to be a farmer in a very short three weeks. What began as a little spark between the two of them had grown into something more when Franny drove away after Thanksgiving to travel to the city and start a new life.

What happened within those next couple of days was something neither of them saw coming. Soon Franny found herself back on the farm and Charlie found himself caught between a rock and a hard place with his father. It was wonderful to see how two people having been raised in such different homes were able to learn from one another and discover the true meaning of family and find love once and for all.

The only bad thing I can say about the book is that I wished more of it had taken place around Christmas. Other than that it was a great story!

About A Merry Little Christmas: 

Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.
Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?
