Comfort and Joy

Finished July 9
Comfort & Joy by Kristin Hannah

High-school librarian Joy Candellaro is still grieving the loss of her marriage after finding her husband and sister together eleven months ago. She isn't sure how she's going to spend the two weeks she has off over Christmas, and is trying to create at least the look of the holiday at home. But when her sister meets with her with more news, she finds herself needing to get away, and flees for the airport.
There, she takes a flight that ends in disaster, and finds herself trying to escape even further, walking away and finding herself at a small lodge by a lake where she checks in to the otherwise unoccupied resort and befriends Bobby the young boy who lives there with his father Daniel, and is also recovering from a loss in his life. 
As she and Bobby bond over creating a Christmas at the lodge and helping Bobby with his grief and other issues, she finds herself looking for a new future and considering life beyond her divorce.
This is a tale of loss and hope, of looking at things through new eyes, and finding a future despite dealing with grief. 
Joy is a positive woman, who has a good work environment and coworkers who care about her. She also cares about others and this shows in her interactions with Bobby.
