This is the story of two mothers who are strangers to one another. The first has two children - twins, a boy and a girl who are seniors in high school. She wants their last Christmas as a family living in the same home to be perfect, but her husband is delayed returning form a business trip abroad. And then there's an accident - a fatal one involving a drunk driver. Meanwhile, the other mother has a daughter who needs a new heart and so the loss of one woman, becomes the miracle the other has desperately prayed for. While one mother grieves, and pulls away from her family, the other is determined to find and thank the woman who returned her daughter to the living.

Review quote

"The emotional takeaway of ["The Way of Women"] is reminiscent of Karen Kingsbury at her best. The characters' issues are neither surface nor easily solved. A challenging, fulfilling read."-- "Romantic Times" "Snelling writes about the foibles of human nature with keen insight and sweet honesty."--National Church Library Association Snelling's captivating tale will immediately draw readers in. The grief process is accurately portrayed, and readers will be enthralled by the raw emotion of Jenna's and Nora's accounts.--Romantic Times Book Reviews "Snelling, whose novels have sold more than two million copies, is sure to grab readers from the start of this holiday melodrama...[a] spiritually challenging and emotionally taut story. Fans of Christian women's fiction will enjoy this winning novel."--Publishers Weekly
