Don’t be put off by this book’s size. It is little but proof that good things do come in small packages! With over 50% of marriages ending in divorce today, this book should be read by all those who are married and those planning to marry.
After 20 years of marriage, Jake and Marlee Ebenezer have decided they are done. Without even telling their children their plans, they take off on Christmas Eve to meet a lawyer and sign the papers to end their marriage. Hazardous driving conditions from a snow storm causes Jake to lose control of the car, and they have an accident. When Marlee regains conscienceless she is alone in the car. Presuming Jake has set off in search of help, she decides to find him. In the process she finds a warm cozy house and is invited to stay. The owner is an elderly man named Jake. As the story unfolds and in some very surprising and unanticipated ways as he helps Marlee find the truth.
I found this not only to be a wonderful Christmas story but also a very inspirational one concerning marriage. Too many people give up too quickly on their marriages and choose divorce. They never know what wonderful blessings they might have experienced if they had only weathered the storms and worked on their relationship. Caught up in the moment few consider the far reaching consequences their choices will have not only on them but their children.
The authors did a wonderful job in capturing the damaging thinking and attitudes couples in conflict that blinds them to seeing what the real answer is. This little book sends a powerful message.
I found, A Marriage Carol, quick to read, thought provoking, and filled with surprises!
