Books and novellas by Anne Perry are always most welcome! This year, the author’s Christmas story gives the reader the opportunity to get to know Charlotte Pitt’s grandmother, Mariah Ellison, better. Mariah struggles with her own past as she tries to right a past injustice. Mariah is human, flawed, strong and admirable, much as we all are. Anne Perry writes with compassion and understanding. A great holiday gift for any fan of this author’s series. Highly recommended.
