Josie Tatternall'a military widow turned B&B proprietor'has just witnessed her best friend's narrow brush with death and, as a result, she decides that life is too short to let old grievances stand in the way of family togetherness. This year, she resolves, her three grown daughters'the girls she raised so carefully yet with such mixed results'will come home for the holidays.Skillfully employing her uncanny ear for Southern sensibility and her own sharp-eyed wit, Lois Battle gives us her most entertaining and emotional novel to date. Family secrets, old misunderstandings, and unspoken loyalties are played out amidst the heightened expectations of a Christmas season that guarantees joy and tears alike.The upstairs/downstairs comedies of a Southern inn make a perfect backdrop for this portrait of a family in all its tender, touching, and flawed glory'and a love story that comes as suddenly as sunshine after the rain.
