Megan's daughter Skye is the most important person in her life. She loves her very much and wants what's best for her. They have a strong bond and are good friends. Skye is a great kid, she's unbelievably bright and she's good company. Megan's aunt has been there for them ever since Skye was a baby. Unfortunately Megan's parent's weren't that supportive and she hasn't seen them ever since she told them she was pregnant. Her mother had big plans for her and Megan had to make them happen whatever the costs. The only good thing in her life was her boyfriend Lucas and Megan also hasn't seen him since she left her home town before Skye was born.

Megan's parents have invited her for Christmas. After many years without contact she now has to visit her family again. It means that she can't escape her past any longer. She keeps running into Lucas and even though she tries not to care about him, it's difficult. Skye loves spending time with her grandparents and with Lucas, so for her Megan has to be strong and face the people she's so carefully avoided. Will she be able to survive this Christmas at home?

Driving Home for Christmas is a story about a woman who has a difficult past. Megan has a lot of bad memories to deal with. There were also some good times and they were mostly with Lucas. Even though Christmas is part of this novel it's also a story that can be read throughout the year as it isn't only about the holidays. Megan's history is much more important. I enjoyed reading this book very much and I think it's really good. I think A.L. Michael has written a wonderful story and I'm happy I had the chance to read it.

Driving Home for Christmas was a beautiful, heart-warming, emotional story which showed the true importance of family and how the festive season has the ability to make or break a family. It took me a tiny bit of time to connect with this book but when I did, I didn’t want to leave this story behind. Megan McAllister is leaving her comfortable, settled life behind for the month of December as she is taking her daughter Skye ‘home’ to her parents’ house for Christmas, a place she feels less than comfortable since she left ten years ago. Megan and her mum Heather don’t have a good relationship. When Megan fell pregnant with Skye, Heather was disgusted at how all her plans for Megan’s life had fallen apart and in turn, she kicked her daughter out of home. So with this, I was already rooting for Megan and hoping she would survive the festive season. Her mum was built up in my mind as the pantomime villain and I wasn’t a fan, but once we meet Megan’s family, I started to have doubts over what I had thought they would be like and my hopes for a re-connection between them and Megan were lifted just a little bit…

I think what drew me to this book the most was the wonderful group of characters who made me smile, laugh, swoon, cry and every little thing in between. I had so much respect for Megan as a person and as a mother. She has built up this incredible relationship with her daughter Skye which I imagine can’t have been the easy thing to do considering her own mother wasn’t the best role model in that aspect. Megan has created and worked hard for the best possible life for Skye and the bond between them both is lovely to read. Skye is a serious gem of a character. She’s inquisitive, thoughtful and huge fun.

The book is mainly told from Megan's point of view, and so we mostly get her feelings on things as the book progresses. It's clear straight from the start that the reason Megan left was that she got pregnant young, and her parents were very disapproving, instead hoping their daughter would be a high-flier and manage a super career to make them proud. Megan left while she was pregnant, and they've never met her daughter Skye. Teenage pregnancy is far more common and acceptable these days, so it was a surprise to read about characters that were disapproving of such a topic, although it definitely made a change to read this. I felt incredibly sorry for Megan, being pushed away from her family when she so desperately needed their love and encouragement, but luckily she had her aunt there to look after her once Skye was born.

I loved the character of her aunt Anna. She was full of life, and you could tell how devoted she was to both Megan and Skye, allowing them to live with her, no questions asked when they needed to. She loved glamour, and together with her lodger Jeremy, both of them helped Megan to raise Skye. There are many different relationships in this book, but the one Anna and Megan share was the sweetest for me. I do want to mention the character of Skye as well. So many writers struggle with writing children into their novels, and I always find they come across far too old for the age they are meant to be in the book. However, this certainly wasn't the case for Skye - she was written perfectly. A feisty, independent and clever young girl who is fiercely protective of her mother but also just craving a life with the family she never had. I loved Skye, and she was certainly my favourite character in the book.
