A story of love and hope at Christmas, The First Christmas Without You is an emotional and poignant novella. A truly magical Lapland fairytale…
Jessie Collins has always wanted to visit Lapland. But this Christmas, more than any other, it’s the place she feels she really needs to be as she tries to come to terms with a future she really needs to start living.
This little story will warm your heart and make you believe in fate!
Jessie is a 42-year-old who had always loved Christmas time. The lights on the trees, the snow and the smell it brings. Until Jase, her husband for 10 years had a fatal accident two weeks before Christmas day. And that just breaks Jessie’s world apart.
My life had been good before he’d walked into it, don’t get me wrong. He’d just made everything that much better, that’s all.
Jase had always been an adventurous man, and one of his dream trips was to ski in Finland.
One year later, Jessie is still grieving. But when her brother Matt, who was also one of Jase’s closest friends, invite her to go with him and a group of friends to the Finnish Lapland she cannot say ‘no’. Obviously.
There she meets Zac, a thirty-something Irish guy, who is the vocalist of a rock band! And who seems to make everything fell ok for the main protagonist :) She also keeps stepping into Mikku, a young Sami man, who is constantly giving her words of encouragment, but in a strange and misterious way… because Jessie and Zac deserve a second chance in love!
