It Really IS a Wonderful Life
An Iraq war widow finds new life in a smalltown


Midville newcomer and Iraq War widow, Dorie Fitzgerald, despises the frigid Adirondack wasteland that has now become her home. After twenty failed job interviews, she questions the wisdom of moving to be near her parents. Desperate to belong, she joins the local Community Theater, in production for It’s a Wonderful Life.

Jamey Sullivan has put his professional life on hold in order to run the family business and to help his ailing father. He signs on for Midville’s production of It’s a Wonderful Life, although he hopes to receive a Broadway casting call any day now.

When these two meet, they are instantly attracted to one another. However, ambition, demanding children, and a romantic rival threaten to squash their growing love for one another. Each must discover that the best things in life are found where your heart resides.

It Really is a Wonderful Life is set in the beautiful Adirondack mountains, a perfect backdrop for a Christmas romance.


This is a story you can read any time of the year, not just at Christmas time. Sweet romance with believable characters, settings, dialogue, and storyline. Some Christian influence without being preachy. Very enjoyable. This is the first story by this author for me, but it certainly won't be the last. I am a fan from here on out.


Well written, clean, interesting book. Thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the characters and didn’t want it to end! Thank you!


Super characters are so thoughtfully brought to life. I loved both the storyline and the Christian purposes built-in.

A romance that isn't typical. The characters were real, the problems were real, and my smile at the end of the story was real too!
