Funny story: When I read the synopsis for this book, it immediately made me think of a movie I saw years ago.
In fact… from the synopsis, the book sounds exactly like the movie – so of course, I was intrigued. I just had to read it!
As far as I can tell, Robert Tate Miller is the man who actually wrote the movie script, so I’m guessing he decided he wanted to offer this wonderful story to the reading world as well.
It’s more than a little odd… reading a book that came from a movie – very different from reading a book that later becomes a movie.
The expectations are very different because you already have a picture in your head of what is happening.
So… for anyone who saw the movie who reads the book, they’ll be able to visualize very well while reading.
Two somewhat unique observations…
1) From all of the other reviews I read through, it appears that I am the only reviewer who has actually seen the movie.
2) I have to wonder if Robert Tate Miller is no longer interested in writing for Hollywood since his stories are full of miracles and heartwarming Christmas and that seems to be the last thing Hollywood is interested in at the moment… even on his website, it sounds as if Robert is doing everything he can to forget he ever wrote for Hollywood – which seems like a fine idea to me.
More from Thomas Nelson about Forever Christmas:
One snowy Christmas Eve, Andrew’s life is tragically turned upside down. Then a heavenly gift provides him the opportunity to make things right.
Andrew Farmer is on the fast-track in the literary world. As an up-and-coming agent, he is constantly on the road, wooing prospective clients and making a name for himself. But all of his travels leave his wife and childhood sweetheart, Beth, home alone, wondering what has happened to their marriage.
Andrew returns from yet another last-minute trip, knowing he needs to make amends to Beth for his departure just days before Christmas, but he doesn’t expect her frosty greeting and the argument that ensues. Would they have spent their last moments together arguing had they known that just before midnight on Christmas Eve, Beth would be hit by an out-of-control taxi that would ultimately take her life? Andrew would like to believe not, but it isn’t until he meets a humble, straight-talking angel in disguise named Lionel that Andrew receives the opportunity to try again.
Lionel grants Andrew the gift of the last three days of Beth’s life to relive, but there’s a hitch: her fate cannot be changed. Only one gift will save her life, and Andrew has a mere seventy-two hours to figure out what that gift is or he’ll lose Beth forever.
