Stranded by a snowstorm, Carrie Sanders is left holding a bag an old woman she’d been talking to left behind in the airport coffee shop. Mystified by the woman’s disappearance, she sits on the bench staring at the snow globe that was in the bag. Inside the glittery snowy world it’s Christmas during the 1940s. Fighting sleep, the next thing she knows she’s in the arms of the soldier she last saw skating on the pond in the snow globe. He’s no stranger, but the boy next door who never forgot her.
“My heart swelled with love as Ms. Lorenzen’s characters interacted with long-passed loved ones and the author skillfully brings into the page how that era’s Christmas celebrations look and feel … spot-on in our imagination.”
Author note: Though I’d love to take credit for the idea, my wonderful publisher, Lovely Christian Romance, was putting this collection of stories revolving around snow globes together. I loved the idea and came up with this story for it.
