"baby, it's cold outside" by susan may warren

Dottie Morgan is preparing for another Christmas alone. Since her son Nelson's death during World War II, Dottie has kept everyone at arm's length. When a blizzard hits, four others find refuge at Dottie's house. As they weather the storm, past hurts will resurface, secrets will come to light, and love just may find its way back to Dottie's life.

My take: Baby, It's Cold Outside may take place during the Christmas season, but its message—of honesty, forgiveness, and surrender to God—is applicable year round. And the characters, oh the characters! Susan May Warren is a master of character development. Wounded and bitter Dottie, stubborn and faithful Gordy, lonely and vulnerable Violet, kind and resourceful Jake, and imaginative and energetic Artie all jump off the page. When I finished the book, I felt like I knew these characters, and I was sorry to be leaving them behind.

Baby, It's Cold Outside is a heartwarming, enjoyable book, and I give it five out of five stars.

Learn the story behind the novel, read an excerpt, buy it, and see what others are saying.
