Review of “Her Last Christmas” by Melonie Phillips
Summary: Christmas is a trying time for the aged, and it is no different for Mary Beth. But this year she has a secret. A tender yuletide tale perfect for the holidays, or any other time of the year.
Review: This is a cute little story about a bereft family of a fallen soldier and their elderly neighbor helping each other through a tough Christmas. It contains such religious undertones as are expected in a seasonal piece but does not proselytize. It stands in serious need of copyediting. The plot twist falls a little short of O. Henry but has a pleasant aftertaste. A quick and easy read.
