An Endless Christmas 
"An Endless Christmas"
Cynthia Ruchti

Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster.
Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined. Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very wrong when she says, “no.” Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it’s Christmas.

Perfect book to read around the holidays.  This read is full of holiday spirit and the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus Christ!  I have never read Cynthia Ruchti's work before, but I sure hope to read more of her books!  I was captivated by this story on page one.  Cynthia Ruchti wrote in such a way that I felt like I was scrunched up in that cabin with the other twenty Binders.  

I love how the Binders were so close.  It reminded me of my family and then some parts, I wished my family was more like the Binders.  The contrast between the Binders family and Katie's family was such a vast difference, it reminded me how blessed I am to have a close family.

Katie was too hard on herself, but then aren't we all? Micah was seemingly perfect and wonderful.  The kind of guy girls can only dream of, it seems.  I loved the grandparents relationship.  Very similar to my own grandparents.

A beautiful story to match the beautiful scenery of the cover!  Definitely going on my "to keep" shelf!
