Till Morning Is Nigh is a delightful Christmas novel, that emphasises the simple joys in life. It is set during the American depression, a time of poverty for many, but neighbours and friends all pull together. The mainstay of the family is the mother, who has oodles of patience and love to hand out to all who need her.

Till Morning Is Nigh is the first novel that I have read by Leisha Kelly, but it is definitely not going to be the last.
