Thanksgiving in Connecticut (A Romantic Comedy) by May McGoldrick

Talented photographer Paige Coleman has stayed away from her beloved seaside Connecticut village of Stonington ever since being mortified by ‘viral’ YouTube video that captured her in the buff at the top of a whaling ship at Mystic Seaport. Now, four years later, Paige decides that the time has come to face up to her past when her quirky, eighty-six-year-old grandmother throws the mother of all Thanksgivings to celebrate her recent marriage to ‘younger man’ Ed Fenwick. But with hometown god and former flame Stanley Fenwick, grandson of the groom, sure to be a part of every event, Paige must now protect her heart as well as retain her sanity, even as her cougar-turned-matchmaker grandmother uses every resource at her disposal to rekindle old fires of passion. As Thanksgiving dinner looms, Paige must realize that the sacrifice of a little dignity is worth the home and family she has missed so much.

 

Thanksgiving: The Holiday at the Heart of the American Experience by Melanie Kirkpatrick

We all know the story of Thanksgiving. Or do we? This uniquely American holiday has a rich and little known history beyond the famous feast of 1621.

 

In Thanksgiving, award-winning author Melanie Kirkpatrick journeys through four centuries of history, giving us a vivid portrait of our nation’s best-loved holiday. Drawing on newspaper accounts, private correspondence, historical documents, and cookbooks, Thanksgiving brings to life the full history of the holiday and what it has meant to generations of Americans.

 

Many famous figures walk these pages—Washington, who proclaimed our first Thanksgiving as a nation amid controversy about his Constitutional power to do so; Lincoln, who wanted to heal a divided nation sick of war when he called for all Americans—North and South—to mark a Thanksgiving Day; FDR, who set off a debate on state’s rights when he changed the traditional date of Thanksgiving.

 

Ordinary Americans also play key roles in the Thanksgiving story—the New England Indians who boycott Thanksgiving as a Day of Mourning; Sarah Josepha Hale, the nineteenth-century editor and feminist who successfully campaigned for Thanksgiving to be a national holiday; the 92nd Street Y in New York City, which founded Giving Tuesday, an online charity established in the long tradition of Thanksgiving generosity. Kirkpatrick also examines the history of Thanksgiving football and, of course, Thanksgiving dinner.

 

While the rites and rituals of the holiday have evolved over the centuries, its essence remains the same: family and friends feasting together in a spirit of gratitude to God, neighborliness, and hospitality. Thanksgiving is Americans’ oldest tradition. Kirkpatrick’s enlightening exploration offers a fascinating look at the meaning of the holiday that we gather together to celebrate on the fourth Thursday of November.

 

With Readings for Thanksgiving Day designed to be read aloud around the table.

 

Thanksgiving Bride: A Gift For Billy (Brides For All Seasons Vol.2) by Terri Grace

William Billy Johnson and his brother, Martin, are pioneers of Platte Creek, a small but growing frontier town. All looks bright for the boys, especially when Martin finds a good woman and she falls pregnant with his first child.

 

Then tragedy strikes the town in the form of a massive flood, carrying away martin and killing his wife, Billy is left with a premature baby girl to nurse in his grief.

 

Only the arrival of a stranger, a young lady named Anabelle, offers a ray of hope for the grieving cowboy.

 

Thanksgiving is drawing close, but there seems little to give thanks for until the Lord works a miracle of love in the midst of Platte Creek.

 

Brides For All Seasons Vol. II is a beautiful historical holiday romance series. Each book in the collection is a standalone story designed to warm your heart with seasonal love and romantic adventure.
