Baby It's Cold Outside

A storm house for those of you that are not quite sure what that is, is simply a house of refuge in a storm, created when families that lived really far from the school, an hour or more, would be assigned a storm house. In the event of a storm once school was dismissed, you were to head to your storm house and wait out the storm or until your parents picked you up from there.

There hasn't been a blizzard to hit the town of Frost, Minnesota, for quite some time but in 1949, there are about to get another, and with that the basis for the novel, Baby, It's Cold Outside by Susan May Warren. Five people are about to spend Christmas snowed in and miracles are about to happen.

Dottie Morgan is the librarian for Frost, Minnesota and has in a sense isolated herself from people ever since the death of her son, Nelson in the war. She now spends her time all alone in a fairy-tale like Victorian home on the outskirts of town. Her son, Nelson's star used to top the tree in the center of town but for the last 5 years, Dottie has been unwilling to part with it, so now the tree stands decorated in lights with the exception of the tree top.

Violet Hart, has spent the last few years serving in the WAAC's during the war and now her mother firmly believes that since she can fix engines better than most men, she will spend the rest of her life alone. Little does she know, she's been writing to a service man, named Alex for over 4 years now and has even invited him to the town Christmas dance. However when she shows up at the post office, she finds her letter is stamped Return To Sender. Feeling a bit blue during this time of year, she is convinced she can get Dottie to let her use the star for the top of the Christmas tree. When she leaves the community center to head out in the storm, she is about to get more for Christmas than she ever dreamed of.

I received this book compliments of Litfuse Publicity for my honest review and LOVED it! A lot like, It's A Wonderful Life, we see how God works things that were once intended for sadness bring a whole lot of joy and love into Christmas. I would love to see this picked up and turned into a holiday classic. You see how people perceptions of others, leads them at times to think the best and the worst of some people and simply just being yourself is the best way of all! Thank you Susan for sharing this beautiful and heartwarming story with all of us. A MUST READ for Christmas, this rates 5 out of 5 stars!
