A Christmas Novella
SOMETIMES, FINDING LOVE IS AS EASY AS KNOWING WHERE YOU LAST HAD IT…
Retired from the Army after twenty years of service, Major Thankful Russell’s whole life till now has been made up of war and intelligence. And now in peacetime, he suspects no more war and, on current showing, precious little intelligence.
The idea of spending Christmas surrounded by drunkenness and debauchery at His Majesty’s court is more than he can bear – and so he begs leave, to spend a quiet family Christmas at home.
The problem is, he doesn’t have a family. And nor, with his scarred face and his shyness, does he ever expect to have one.
But when an accident of fate returns him to the only place he’s ever called home, it’s down to his old commanding officer’s daughter to teach him that not everyone sets so high a value on the outer wrapping of the most precious gift of all….
This is not my normal read but something drew my attention to it and I downloaded it a couple of years ago. I enjoyed it at the time and I read it again this past weekend and it was as good as I remembered.
Entertaining Angels is a lovely tale of sensitivity and kindness.
Whilst this is described as a Christmas story, and does takes place around Christmas it is a touching story about a broken man, and his gradual recovery through the love of a family.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
MJ Logue is a writer, mad cake lady, re-enactor, historian.
Been slightly potty about the clankier side of Ironside for around 20 years, and lists amongst my heroes in this unworthy world Sir Thomas Fairfax, Elizabeth Cromwell and John Webster (for his sense of humour.)
When not purveying historically-accurate cake to various re-enactment groups across the country, M.J. Logue can usually be discovered practising in her garden with a cavalry backsword.
Often to be found loitering, in an ill-tempered manner, at A Sweet Disorder (www.asweetdisorder.com) – dp along and pass unhelpful remarks!
