Merry Mary by Ashley Farley was a super sweet story. This is a short book and I loved that about it. Some books that are short feel rushed and I wish that the book was longer. I loved that this one was just the right size and it didn’t feel like anything was left out or that the story was rushed because the author was trying to keep the book short. I spent the entire time hoping that Scottie didn’t get arrested and sent to jail because she took the baby when she found the mother dead. This was an amazing Christmas story and one that made me remember the reason for the season. If you love amazing Christmas stories than I know you won’t want to miss this book.
About The Book
A young woman longing for a child stumbles upon a Christmas miracle.
Investigative journalist Scottie Darden is photographing the homeless for her Lost Souls series when she makes a discovery that could change her life forever. Under a makeshift tent in subzero temperatures in a downtown city park, she finds a woman’s dead body with her infant child. Without her cell phone to call for help, Scottie makes the split-second decision to take the baby home. Her initial instinct is to provide the baby with food and shelter until her family can be located. But as her fondness for the baby grows, she finds herself facing a life on the run or worse—prison time for abduction.
Curl up with Merry Mary this holiday season. A heartwarming story of the powerful connection between a caring soul and an innocent child in need.
