Got married 35 years ago today, and after the day, I still have to ask myself why>
I made a nice supper, which went uneaten.... cornish game hens stuffed with rice and fruit and baked squash....
Then I escaped into our book club book.... Richard Paul Evans –"Finding Noel" – 2 children separated and adopted at age 5 and 7 are reunited in their 20’s. The older one, abused in a horrid foster home, has dreams that come true and she dreams a snowman will come and she will take him home so he doesn’t melt. This is the man she will marry and he becomes part of the life she now shares with a woman who lost her 4 y.o. to a drowning. After only 3 weeks, he asks Macy Woods to marry him and she runs. Her soon-to-be-adopted mom, tells Mark Smart that he should give Macy some time. He goes home and finds out his father was only a substitute for his mom’s dh who died in Viet Nam. He returns in time to be there for Macy when Joette dies of cancer and also is there when her sis, Noel, who was adopted by rich lawyer family, but never told she was adopted, finds a letter from her mom in a broken Christmas ornament and learns from her adoptive mom where her sis lives. Author summarizes what has happened from then till now.... Awesome Christmas read, will definitely be reading more of his books.
