Waking Up For Christmas

We are all in the home stretch of readying our Christmas stories for an Authors of Main Street boxed set.

I have always found The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks a very romantic book but some will disagree, so in the way of writers, I thought what if?!

My story for the set, Waking Up For Christmas is my version of The Notebook with a happy, happy ending. LOL

Darcy Bennett Thanos is in a coma after a car accident. Her soon-to-be ex-husband, Chase Thanos sits by her side, desperate for her to wake up. In his grief of their failed marriage he stays by her hospital bed telling her of all the milestones of their love, from their first meeting to their last argument, begging her to wake up for Christmas, even if it to divorce him.

    So glad you changed the ending, Jill!
    I find Nicholas Sparks stories with the tragic endings absolutely poisonous!

    Thanks, Stephanie. I did just use The Notebook as a jumping-off idea. I love playing ‘what if’.
