    One thought on “A Marriage Carol”

    1. A Marriage Carol is not a romance novel It is a short 128 pages story of a marriage that rises renewed from the ashes of hopelessness and resignation written by two writers well known within the Christian community Its message that God can restore broken marriages when both parties are committed to Him, to one another, and to their marriage will evoke hope in some and seem simplistic to others The prose is sometimes lovely and lyrical There is no barren place on earth that love cannot grow a gar [...]

    7. My first Christmas book this year and it was so worth reading A Marriage Carol is such a incredible, little book and I love it I read it in only a few hours, it wouldn t have taken that long if I didn t have to interrupt my reading to get things done.A Marriage Carol takes a few sentences and has some of the same plots as the famous book A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens They are on their way to town to get a divorce and end up in a ditch The next things they go through causes Marlee and Jaco [...]

    8. As a fiction book, I would not rate this so high But because it really made me think and because of its deeper message that marriage definitely is something worth fighting for, I gave it a 5.It is their 20th wedding anniversary, and Marlee and Jacob are about to get divorced They get into an accident in a snowstorm Marlee can t find Jacob, but does find a house with a light on She makes her way to the house, and ends up meeting the older man that lives there The house ends up being a marriage re [...]

    10. Free Kindle book from This is a save your marriage short story based loosely on The Christmas Carol Didn t care so much for the story, it s predictable and stale I wouldn t recommend this book because 1 Your marriage is good because you ve already realized the lifelong commitment needed to keep it that way and the trite storyline will not make a difference in your life.2 Your marriage sucks and the trite storyline can not begin to help you.3 You re not married and the trite story line is too con [...]

    11. I heard this as a free download from Moody Radio, and really enjoyed it The story was real I could relate to some of it and a great reminder that marriages are worth fighting for A GREAT listen

    12. I enjoyed this book both the premise and the nuances of the implementation But I think it could have been powerful with its message if it had gone into greater detail about the characters For a book about a failing marriage, I feel like I have very few concrete examples of why the marriage was failing I m guessing the authors wanted to relate to readers by keeping possibilities open For me, the brevity had the opposite effect I struggled with rooting for or emphasizing with the characters beca [...]

    13. While on their way to sign divorce papers, Jacob and Marley Ebenezer are involved in a car accident Marlee is knocked unconscious and experiences some revealing dreams, much like Scrooge experienced in Dicken s Christmas Carol Instead Marlee has visits from the ghosts of Marriage Past, Marriage Future, and Marriage Present Marlee learns the greatest lesson of all that marriage is always worth fighting for I highly recommend this and would give twice the stars if I could.

    14. A loose re telling of A Christmas Carol, this is a story of healing and renewing of love and hope within a failing marriage It is told in an interesting way, but I didn t really connect to the characters emotionally Perhaps because there was not a lot of back story, and it is a short story, so there s not a lot of time to get to know the characters It is a nice, short holiday story, though.

    15. she was driving with her husband on a snowy night to get divorced on the way they got in a accident she found herself at a house with a man who showed her how to fill 3 bowls of snow and as they melted in the fireplace she could see past present and future when she woke up in the hospital she told her husband she wanted to try again to save their marriage.

    16. Great reflective storyThis book is great for looking at marriage as a long term commitment So many times people want to throw in the towel and find happiness elsewhere This book recognizes that and also how to look at making grass greener where you stand Lovely story.

    20. I was in the mood for a Christmas story, and I like books about happily married couples though they seem hard to come by, so I was interested in reading this to see Marlee and Jacob come back to each other The problem with the book was that it was too short for such an in depth story line I like short books like this because they are a quick read and a nice change of pace from the longer novels However, the story line has to be right for such a short story This story line does not fit in with th [...]
