Review: The Advent Bride by Mary Connealy

Yesterday, I posted a review for The Fruitcake Challenge by Carrie Fancett Pagels. Today, I have another Christmas novella review. This one also involving a popular Christmas tradition. I enjoy Mary Connealy’s stories, and this was the first Christmas one I have read by her. It was everything I could hope for.

The Advent Bride by Mary Connealy

Melanie Douglas is alone on the Nebraska plains, teaching school to get by. She finds a unique box with hidden drawers to use over the advent season to engage a young boy in his schooling. When Henry O’Keeffe sees a positive change in his son, he has to see for himself what this new teacher is doing.

**I received a free copy of this book from Barbour Publishing, Inc and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

The Advent Bride by Mary Connealy was such a fun read. Stories that involve little kids are often riddled with a certain amount of humour. While it has been a couple of years since I have been in a classroom, the character Simon certainly reminded me of some of the trouble makers I had dealt with!

Overall, this story has everything you could want in novella. It is a bit unique, the main characters have a bit of backstory, but not too much, and everything flows at a wonderful pace. I adored this novella!

I would love to hear from you! Do you have any traditions that your family has started recently?
