5.0 out of 5 stars Another great love story 27 Oct 2009
By Mary Proctor - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ry Lassiter, a prosperous lawyer from Philadelphia, hurries back to Texas after he receives a desperate telegram from Belle, his childhood friend. But before he can reach her, two thugs accost and shoot him. Josie Wylie, a livery stable owner he's briefly met and helped, realizes the thugs are following Ry and mean to harm him. She charges after them, and her quick thinking saves his life. When a thug gets the upper hand, Ry rescues Josie before he passes out from his injuries.

Josie brings Ry to her family's boarding house, where everyone treats him like a hero, much to his dismay. His convalescence is slow, and as Josie nurses him, their mutual attraction grows. But she's locked into a position as her family's main breadwinner, and her heart's cry is to see the world as an independent, single woman. As soon as her family members can fend for themselves, dutiful Josie will be out of there.

Since neither of the two places Ry's lived in--a Texas ranch with his siblings and a posh dwelling with his grandfather in Philadelphia--gives him a sense of belonging, he yearns for a place he can call home. Belle dies before Ry is well enough to travel, and he finds himself a guardian to Viola, Belle's young daughter. Now he must find a home for Viola too, and he wants Josie to be a part of it. But she's more determined than ever to fulfill her dream, which doesn't include marriage or getting tied down to the only place Ry wants to live.

Ry and Josie both possess a strong will and deep sense of honor and duty, and their differences often cause clashes that push them in opposite directions. Yet these conflicts force them to examine themselves and deal with issues that they had either ignored before they met or didn't realize existed. When seriously seeking the Lord becomes their only recourse, they must choose between His will and what they desire above all else.

I enjoyed The Christmas Journey very much. Loved Ry's and Josie's strengths and vulnerabilities, though I wanted her to give up her silly desire for independence and accept the inevitable (What can I say? I'm a sucker for those wonderful, sensitive heroes). As a writer, my editing brain often tries to pop up and spoil the story for me, but Winnie Griggs kept me so engrossed, I forgot about everything but the characters and their efforts to resolve their struggles. I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable cozy read 27 Dec 2009
By Carole Jarvis - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading several secular Christmas romances, I longed for a Christian romance and began searching. The Christmas Journey received some good reviews on Amazon, so I decided to try the Kindle version, and I'm glad I did. This tender romance had engaging characters, an interesting storyline, and kept my interest. I'd like to see future books develop the characters of Ry and Josie's brother and sisters. And I will definitely read more books by Winnie Griggs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful holiday romance 15 Mar 2010
By G. Neese - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I greatly enjoyed reading The Christmas Journey, it's wholesome, old fashioned romance, and it emphasized the joy of family and that family isn't just the people that are blood kin but other people too. In addition to the main two characters, Jo & Ryland, there are other interesting characters, Jo's sister Cora Beth, and Ryland's siblings Griff and Sadie. Hopefully Ms. Griff will write their stories too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Christmas Journey 23 Nov 2009
By Mary Fitzgerald - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've enjoyed all of Winnie's books, each is better than the last. I read the latest, The Christmas Journey, while on an airplane trip. I wanted to finish the story so badly, I was the last person off the plane, making me run to my connecting flight. The characters are fun, you'd enjoy being friends with them. The heroine is courageous and spunky, the hero handsome,kind, and wealthy. This is a perfect read for anytime, especially for the holiday season. I hope the author does another book with the heroine's sister.
