About the Story

Six-year old Mary Noel Simmons is hit by a car and her dog dies in the same accident.  Mary Noel is not only physically injured but emotionally because she lost her best friend.  She has stopped talking or communicating with the world.  And as she recovers in the hospital her parents face another problem, the medical bills are piling up and they have no way to pay them.

Mary Noel’s teacher, Amber, comes up with an idea to help and another visitor at the hospital, Paul, introduces himself and offers to work with her on the project.  Together they inspire a community to rally for little Mary Noel and celebrate life.  It wouldn’t be the holidays without a little romance and author, June McCrary Jacobs delivers sweetly and with a sense of humor.   Amber and Paul find each other during this time of miracles.

My Take

It was a pleasure to read this heart-warming story.  In the days of online dating, television shows about crazy men and women almost hunting each other, it was a mental break to read a sweet love story.  Two people who are happy in their lives meet and fall in love.  No drama, no games, no desperate manipulations.  In A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom, June McCrary Jacobs reminds us of the goodness of community and that, in a time of tragedy, friends and family are there for support and help.  What better time for a story like this than Christmas.  Put yourself in the holiday mood, when you curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and warm your body and soul with A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom.
