Guest Book Review: Fairy Tale in New York

By Bethany Petty

Imagine this…

It’s the night before Christmas. This year is your beautiful young daughter’s first Christmas, and you’ve planned something magical. Family and friends will gather around the table at your home and you’ll spend the holiday surrounded by the sounds of laughter and joy of the ones you love most.

Sounds perfect, right?

But what if your plans change, unexpectedly, when you decide to help a random stranger in need? A stranger who desperately needs to get home to be with his wife who is experiencing premature labor?

This is exactly what Jude, Carrie, and their daughter Maya experience in Nicky Wells’ holiday novella, Fairy Tale in New York.

Jude, Carrie, and Maya find themselves stuck in a New York snowstorm that prevents them from flying home to England for Christmas.

Can you imagine being virtually stranded in a foreign country during the Christmas holiday?! Not only would you be missing your family and homeland terribly, but think about the logistics of the situation? Hotels are crammed and at capacity. Few establishments are actually open. And you are quite literally at the mercy of the kindness and holiday warmth of complete strangers!

In Fairy Tale in New York, the reader follows this family on a truly magical journey through New York at Christmas, as they meet wonderful strangers who make them feel like family, make life-changing decisions, and receive a wonderful reward for their kindness.

Check out Fairy Tale in New York this Christmas season. You won’t be disappointed!
