Dove Review

Here is a heartwarming story of two women whose friendship grows as close as family as they help each other out in difficult times. Melissa lost her mom and discovers a note that informs her that she has a sibling. Gretchen and her son Ethan are going through some hard times because Gretchen’s husband is in the service and is separated from his family due to a combat injury. Together they discover something about the mystery and each other.

The story is a wonderful lesson of how offering simple acts of kindness can sometimes evolve into life-changing events. This is a charming story of family, love and adoption, and we are proud to award the Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages to the “Christmas Note.”
