  8. True Rating 3.5 stars In at Hope at Christmas, the story of Sydney s character was written realistically and I appreciated that It is hard for anyone to recover after revelations that lead to divorce and I think that there are many people who can relate to her feelings and the defenses she had in place Mac s character also had his share of loss but from a different viewpoint I liked that his character had already been through the loss and was on the other side so that he did not have his own emo [...]
