Return to Christmas beautifully blends the two struggling worlds of a former marine and a little boy with attachment disorder. Former Marine Chet is having a hard time adjusting to civilian life. He doesn't need help. He needs employment. He doesn't have issues. The little boy his friends adopted has issues. But there is something about that little boy that draws him. Will the events leading up to this Christmas be able to melt his soldier heart or will he spiral into a dark depression?

Return to Christmas

Another wonderful story by Kathi Macias. I love her books and this one was wonderful. Very strong characters. Her books are well thought out. Return to Christmas is about a Marine who comes home after being in Afghanistan. Trying to make his place back in his wife and sons life. Things are just not happening as he would like and falls in to depression.
The other part of the story is about a little boy who has lost his parents and was adopted out to a family but has attachment disorder. Some what close to what the soldier is feeling with PSTD. Can somehow they help each other find their way back?
This was a book you won't put down once you start reading it. It is wonderful and a great Christmas story!
