Love met Christmas when Dr.Grant Hardesty met Maggie , at a time he was made to serve at the Button Gap residency as a volunteer doctor. Although at first, both see and believe that working together might be a tough choice and a force to reckon with, eventually, differences are set aside, especially after much realisation of truths between them. And with God’s intervention, Dr. Hardesty and Nurse Maggie learn to help each other by forgiving themselves and the past, while getting prepared for new and better beginnings.
Marta Perry’s Christmas tale is an evergreen one as it could be told countless times without losing its meaning and values. What’s more, reading this story helped to lift my Christmas spirits but mostly showed me the importance of the season; giving love.
This is because in some areas of the book I found myself predicting the next line of action before it occurred, and this didn’t give room for much suspense.
But in all, “The Doctor’s Christmas” was an interesting read. I don’t know if it was a deliberate act, but I loved that while reading this story you could find some giggles . Plus , the characters in their mannerisms were very much real and relatable.Also, if you love a story that has villains and heroes in it, then this book is for you.
I shouldn’t fail to take note of the fact that, this is one of the few books, if not the first book I’ve read that carries a personal note from the author herself. This made me feel even more connected to Marta Perry.

This is wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New year ahead from the Elitzone family.
