The holidays are upon the Prescott family and Gabriel is looking to spending that time with his family on Christmas day. Gabriel will quickly find that he wouldn’t be alone in the house on Christmas Eve. He will find a young girl hiding out in the attic and immediately begin to figure out where she is from, but he can only do that with the help of his family.
Gabriel’s Gift is a novella to the series Lost Hearts by Christina Dodd. This novella gives a little insight with how this extended family has grown over the years. The main character to the novella is obviously Gabriel. Gabriel’s character was a man who was still hurting due to his past but he was a good man. He loved his family with all his heart and his wife. When he interacted with the runaway girl he will have to talk about his past to help this girl heal, along with himself.
I have been a fan of this series, Lost Hearts, and Fortune Hunters which is linked through Gabriel’s character. This novella was very sweet and fun to read. It was actually very mushy with all the emotion but I thought that was just fine because this is a Christmas novella. It was supposed to be filled with love and hope and I think it delivers. The only criticism would be that it could be longer so you get more of this family.
