When Kiley Gray discovers an enchanting snow globe in an antique shop, she has no idea how much her life is about to change. For years, the snow globe has passed from generation to generation, somehow always landing in the hands of a person in special need of a Christmas miracle.
Kiley could use a miracle herself. This year, all she wants for Christmas is someone to love. A hopeful shake leads her on an adventure that makes a believer out of her. When Kiley shares the story of the snow globe with her best friends-two women with problems of their own-they don't believe it. But they're about to discover that at Christmastime, sometimes the impossible becomes possible and miracles really do come true.
The Snow Globe seems to be more a series of short stories tied together with the idea of the Snow Globe rather than one continuous story.
The Globe plays an important role in changing the lives of the three main characters, during christmas time, for the better. Kiley, Suzanne and Allison are all friends and each of them have their own problems to deal with.
To be honest I felt underwhelmed by Suzanne’s and Allison’s stories, they made great supporting characters but didn’t do much for me as main characters. I wish the story had just focused on Kiley.
There is so much promise in this story. So much potential, that it is quite sad that it felt me hanging, waiting for more. Prehaps it would have been better to expand the story even further?
All that said The Snow Globe is a short, sweet and fun novel that will get you in the Christmas spirit!
