Don’t just take my word for it…

It’s a whip-smart story of modern love

“Becca Freeman gives a much-needed update to classic holiday tales. Told over the course of eleven Christmases, this witty and heartfelt debut tracks a group of four young New Yorkers as their friendship solidifies into a chosen family, one with its own traditions, tensions, and drama. It’s a whip-smart story of modern love, letting go, and growing up.”

—Carley Fortune, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Meet Me at the Lake

A fabulous festive read about found family. I loved it from the first sentence.

—Sophie Cousens, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Do

I’m completely in love with this book! 

“The Christmas Orphans Club is a beautiful story of friendship with laugh-out-loud dialogue and characters you can’t stop thinking about. Becca Freeman’s debut is witty, heartwarming, and hilarious and the most delightful thing you’ll read all year.”

—Jennifer Close, New York Times bestselling author of Marrying the Ketchups

Freeman's writing is filled with wit and insight

“Her dialogue crackles. Beneath the abundant humor and charm is a thoughtful exploration of friendship, tradition, and the challenges of growing old.”

—Grant Ginder, bestselling author of The People We Hate at the Wedding and Let's Not Do That Again

If you adore Christmas and loved Friends, then this is the perfect book for you.

“I would happily abandon my husband and kids to spend Christmas in New York with Hannah, Finn, Theo and Priya. A festive, funny, hug of a novel about love in all its forms.”

—Clare Pooley, New York Times bestselling author of Iona Iverson’s Rules for Commuting

Funny and wise

“This totally unexpected story of chosen family warmed me from the inside out. I absolutely adored it.”

—Annabel Monaghan, author of Nora Goes Off Script

everything you could want in a holiday book-treat

“The Christmas Orphans has everything you could want in a holiday book-treat: sweetness, laughs, and delicious rom-com moments that'll make you jump up and yell, 'Kiss him! Kiss him!' Thank you, Becca Freeman, for an ensemble cast so lovable I wish they were real and could be my friends.”

—Mary Laura Philpott, author of Bomb Shelter: Love, Time, and Other Explosives

I will read anything she writes

““The Christmas Orphans Club is a big-hearted, poignant, page-turning novel about the chosen families that sustain us… With this dazzling debut, Freeman is the heir apparent to the mantle of sophisticated, feel-good fiction. ”

—John Glynn, author of Out East: Memoir of a Montauk Summer
