As so often in life, some of the best gifts come in the smallest of packages. "The Visitor" is one such gift. It is based on a true story and is bound to tug at a few heartstrings. The author of this non-fiction tale has been through a rather difficult year. After fifteen years of marriage, she is divorced from her first husband Matt and remarries Brad on the rebound. After experiencing a series of health issues and stressful business dealings...Brad, after a short eighteen months decides he no longer wants to be in the marriage.

Stressed to the hilt, Author Bree Abbington is spending Christmas with her first husband's parents along with their two young daughters. This has been a warm family tradition that has stayed the course despite their divorce. It is especially welcomed after the turmoil of the previous year. After a fun-filled, yet exhausting morning, this author decides to escape to her home for a few hours rest before returning for Christmas Day supper. This is when she has the encounter...a personal realization, a spiritual enlightenment with a very "deer" gift!

"The Visitor" is a lovely debut novel by first time Author Bree Abbington. It left me wanting more. Easy to read and very captivating!

I didn't know what to expect when I agreed to read this book. It was classified as non-fiction, religious, and inspirational. It was described as a Christmas story and I wasn't sure I wanted to read another Christmas story at this time, so soon after Christmas. But, the book was only 58 pages long, so I said okay.

Wow! I'm so glad I read it. It was written in a fiction way of building suspense in ways to keep the reader from putting the book down. Good thing it wasn't too long. I even wondered at times if the book really was a novel made to look like non-fiction.

And the Christmas part? That doesn't enter into the real story. It is just background. The story is about a woman who has gone through some rough times and how an incident in her life helps her see more clearly.
