AN ORIGINAL SHORT STORY FROM THE ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF THE NOVELS THE OPPOSITE OF ME AND THE UPCOMING SKIPPING A BEAT . . . Thirty-year-old Elise Andrews couldna€™t bring herself to marry Griffin, her childhood friend turned sweetheart, so she let him walk away. Eight months after their breakup, she arrives in her hometown of Chicago on Christmas Eve and hears a voice from the past calling her name in the grocery store. Ita€™s Griffina€™s mother, Janice, who invites Elise over for a neighborhood gathering of eggnog and carols. Walking into Janicea€™s house sends Elise tumbling headlong into memories of her relationship with Griffina€”and with Janice, who exudes the kind of warmth Elise ached for after her own mom passed away when she was six. But Griffin has moved on, and suddenly Elise doubts her decision to give him up and lose her chance at being folded into his wonderful family. Confused and reeling, she goes in search of an answer to a universal question: How do we say good-bye to people wea€™ve loved without losing everything theya€™ve meant to us? Heartwarming and witty, All Is Bright is a charming story about coming home for the holidaysa€”and finding gifts in the most unexpected of places.Everything could be white becauseshe wouldna#39;t have to worry about foursmall children and onelarge dog spilling, shedding, messing, and breaking. a€œMommy!a€ Or yelling ... like a raccoon.a€ a€œI heard Angelina Jolie does that every single night, too, a€
