Decluttering: it's a great thing to do, you know. You clear space and you give yourself emotional energy when you get rid of things which you don't need. Take stuff to a charity shop and it's an all-round winner for everyone. That's what Emily did when she began to clear out her flat. Her friend Arabella had given her quite a few gadgets which she knew that she would never use. And it was at the charity shop that she met Dylan. His sister ran a charity which rescued horses and Dylan was helping out between jobs. Now, there's something which you need to know about Dylan. He's perfect. He's thoughtful, considerate, loyal and honest. Yes – he's that perfect.
It's Emily who's a problem. Well, no, that's not really fair. Emily, you see, is carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Her ex-fiancé texted her to say that he'd changed his mind about marrying her, but really should have done it before she got to the altar. So, Emily's not keen on weddings and as it happened at Christmas she's not too keen on the season, either. She can't really turn to her parents for help as, well, they're what you might call 'dysfunctional' as a family.
Emily does her best to support other people. Said friend Arabella's marriage isn't going too well and that's not good particularly as Augusta is desperate to have a baby. Emily has a good job with a magazine called Stylish Interiors. Interiors, you see, are more reliable than people and easier to deal with.
If you'd like a heart-warming story then look no further than A Winter's Wedding. It really is something just that little bit different, with people and situations you can really believe in. I loved Dylan and Emily and particularly the way that Dylan helped Emily to come to terms with her problems. Somehow you feel nicer just for reading the book!
