Who doesn’t love a good Christmas story! THE CHRISTMAS PIN SOCIETY by Marianne Coyne is just that and more. It is an inspirational account of a group of friends who get together each year at Christmas for lunch and a gift exchange, but the caveat is the gifts have to be Christmas pins. Some were nice pieces of jewelry and some were just a few dollars. This tradition continued for years until life got in the way. Some of them moved, one got divorced, and, well you know, life often takes a different turn. Then one year, Emma, came up with a plan that she thought would draw her friends back together and revive their old tradition, but in reality, it was much bigger than that. I can’t tell too much without giving too much information.
This novella is about giving from the heart, about true friendship, and about sacrifice. It is definitely a ‘feel good’ story. The characters were everyone’s next door neighbor. They were a mix of people who got along together in spite of their differences.
Would I recommend THE CHRISTMAS PIN SOCIETY? Absolutely!
Marianne Coyne packed a lot of story into a relatively few number of pages. She writes from the heart. If you would like to know more about Marianne, her books, and her art, please check out the following websites:
