“I became paralyzed with fear. Tears started to run down my cheeks as I sat motionless on the bed facing the locked door.”

Patty had slowly opened up to Bob. She thinks she might be falling in love with him. Even so, he has gone back to New York, and she has not heard from him in two weeks. It is another loss for her. First, her mother died when she was young, and then her husband, Matt, was killed in Afghanistan. She has lost all that were close to her. All but her dad and he is her rock. He is the one that gives her strength.

In, The Christmas Gate 2, Patty’s life becomes like a roller coaster, with the ups and the downs. She loses, and then wins, only to lose again. Then Patty is rocked with an emotional bombshell. She tries to gather herself together, then only another heartbreak again.

She resigns herself to wait at the old farm house until Bob returns to her. She unleashes what Bob had uncovered during his earlier stay, and she too is taken on a journey that will bring to the surface the things she has buried deep inside her, things that she has forgotten, things she refuses to confront, and things that could eventually set her free. Patty and Bob’s story continues in, The Christmas Gate 2.

My thoughts: I was so happy to have been sent the second book in this 2-book series...I adored the first book, which came out last year. And this one continues Patty & Bob's story - a story I needed more of!

What I loved about this book is that it has all the feels and, while it once again has that strong religious tone as was present in the first book, the messages and story itself far outweigh everything else. It is a short story to lose yourself in in the midst of all the holiday busyness and stress, to cherish this endearing story and possibly even shed a tear or too. And it once again has the Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" feeling to it, which I really loved.

I highly recommend reading both of these books - you can easily read them in a day or two. They are charming and full of hope. Perfect reads to get you in the holiday spirit.
