The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts was a delightful book and the perfect story to curl up with in your favorite chair by the fireplace for the Christmas season! It’s a magical story full of warmth and friendships and it leaves you with a good feeling knowing that sometimes miracles really can happen and life can be full of wonderful surprises.
Kylie has no job and her boyfriend dumped her for her sister. Could things get any worse? Maybe not. One afternoon while Kylie is out she finds herself in an antique shop where she spots an old but beautiful snow globe that fascinates her. The shop owner tells her that there is a story behind the snow globe and proceeds to tell her about a previous owner and the miracle that happened to him when he owned the snow globe and not only that but it seems miracles seem to happen to others who have had the snow globe. It seems that this snow globe has been passed from generation to generation and it always seems to fall into the hands of a person who is in need of a Christmas miracle. If anyone can use a Christmas miracle this year, it would certainly be Kylie and she heads out of the shop with the snow globe.
Her friends Suzanne and Allison are skeptical and think Kylie has gone a bit off her rocker especially when Kylie tells them that she’s started seeing things in the snow globe. The thing is the things she’s seeing seem to come true. Still her friends aren’t buying into the snow globe visions yet but Kylie is and she’s beginning to realize her dreams can come true and nothing could be better.
Suzanne is the type of lady who is always on the go; very career oriented and unfortunately at the expense of her husband and daughter. While it seems she has everything going for her, it turns out she doesn’t. Her family is suffering from her obsessive work schedule and her need for everything to be perfect and something is going to have to change or she’ll lose everything. Could the snow globe be the answer for her too?
Allison seems to be one of those sweet kind of friends who’s always there when you need them but she’s a bit of a pushover when it comes to her boyfriend and family. She’s been extremely lost since losing her grandmother so maybe the snow globe can give her the answers she’s looking for as well.
I really enjoyed The Snow Globe. It just goes to show you what can happen in your life if you just open your heart up to it. I loved the friendships between these women; they truly had each others best interests at heart and looked out for each other. It’s wonderful how for each of them their Christmas miracles unfolded and it warmed my heart to be able to share it with them in this story.
If you’re looking for a magical Christmas tale this season I would absolutely recommend The Snow Globe – my copy is being passed right on to my mom who can’t wait to read it after my raving about it. It will warm your heart and leave you feeling good and who couldn’t use that no matter what time of the year it is!
I read The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts for her book tour with Pump Up Your Book. Be sure to check out Sheila Robert’s website – it’s really great! You can purchase your own copy of The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts here in the US and here in Canada. It’s also available for the Kindle if that’s your preference. Either way it’s a fantastic book for the Christmas season and not one to miss!
