Ashley Moore’s life forever changed the day her mother died, and she was sent to live with relatives. Now, ten years later, Ashley returns home, hoping to connect with her estranged father. When she learns he’s decided to reopen the family’s Christmas lodge for the upcoming holiday season, Ashley volunteers to help. While cleaning, she discovers her mother’s journal detailing the last month of her life. Will the book hold the answer as to why her dad sent her away? Who is the mysterious Adam her mother keeps mentioning in the diary? Can the words of her mother reconcile father and daughter in time for Christmas?

After years of silence, the answers will bring a family together.

Ashley comes back home, after being away several years, to her family’s Christmas lodge. While cleaning the lodge she finds her mom’s diary and with it comes questions as well as answers that would shake her world.

The Christmas Journal is not from a genre that I normally read though I would say that whenever I do read any book like this it just touches my heart and this book did it again and again. Kimberly Jackson did a great job painting a picture of the different scenes. At the same time, I would have liked a little bit more descriptiveness in some.

I was with Ashley and her father from the start to the finish. In every step of the way there were parts of the journal which allowed the cleaning of lodge to come through and give a semblance of normality.

This was a refreshing change that touched my heart and gave me hope.  You get a slice of music, with a dash of hot British abs and touch of family and love with a heart touching emotions that will leave you wanting more and more. I can easily recommend it to anyone who loves a sweet story.


  1. What a great holiday book.
