Nora Roberts pens words infused with meaning that touch the lives of those who read her novels. Christmas With You is a testament to this fact. In this collection which features two classic stories, Roberts proves once again why she is one of our favorite storytellers. 

Nora Roberts' Christmas With You


In Gabriel’s Angel (1989), Roberts introduces us to Laura, a woman on the run from her past, and the reclusive man whose life she touches, Gabriel Bradley. While both characters must learn to trust again, this story has several subtexts that will catch your heart unaware.

As the story unfolds, readers are taught powerful lessons: sometimes we have to make a conscious decision to overcome the trauma we endured in the past and people we meet in life have the power to help us transform in ways we never knew possible if we only open our minds and hearts to the possibilities.

Then, in Home for Christmas (1986), a reporter heads back to his home town to win back the heart of the woman he left behind. Unfortunately, forgiveness doesn’t come as easily as he would hope.

If you’re in the mood for unforgettable love stories, you don’t have to look any farther than Nora Roberts. I know you will find her latest collection, Christmas With You, as magical as I did.
