In One Imperfect Christmas, by Myra Johnson, Natalie Pearce has been under a cloud of guilt for almost a year. She blames herself for the stroke which put her mother in a nursing home. She has put her entire life into caring for her mother and her job as a graphic designer. She has put up barriers between herself and her family. Her husband, Daniel, doesn’t know what to do anymore. Lissa, their daughter, is going through a rebellious stage.
Will Natalie be able to rid herself of the guilt for the sake of her family. Will she be able to make it through Christmas?

My Thoughts- I thought One Imperfect Christmas, by Myra Johnson, was interesting. This book is not a book I would have continued reading if I had not been reading it for a review. I do not like reading books where the characters dwell in their own misery and guilt for the entire book.
This book could help a lot of people though, who are having a difficult time in their lives and are unable to cope with it. Natalie Pearce was unable to cope with her mother’s stroke. She blamed herself for it and shut everyone out, even her husband, Daniel. I understand that everyone may not feel the extreme guilt Natalie did, but many may. They may be able to use this book as a beginning point to help them recover.
While this was not my type of book, I thought it was well written. You will have to decide for yourself if this is a good book or not.
