Jackson has come home finally to the house he grew up in only because his father has passed. His father and him did not see eye to eye on everything so he stayed away. Well, letís just say that he didnít really enter the house before he was out again. This was because of Silver, his fatherís cat.

It seems that his father neighbor, Carol, has been taking care of the cat since his fatherís death. Well, it is Carol that finds Jackson all sprawled out on the sidewalk. This starts an interesting dialog between the two of them.

It seems they each can see past the barriers the other has to know how they feel within a short time period. Even though they start out on a little rocky ground, it is soon covered and they are like friends. They had never met before and they both found an attraction to each other that neither one of them was willing to discovery why all of a sudden it was there. They just go with it.

Christmas Carol isnít just about Christmas. It is about the magic that seems to surround it. It is about learning to forgive when you didnít think you would be able to. To learn how to forgive when all you have done is thinking the person hates you and that is why they were hard on you and belittled you and all the two of you did was argue when in the same room for any time together at all. Only to find out that they were trying to make you better than them to have more opportunities then they had. And about finding the person that could be your soul mate when you werenít even looking.

If you are looking for a story that will pull at your heartstrings then pick up a copy of Christmas Carol. You will not be disappointed and can easily be read in an hour or less.
