The Christmas Hope
Genre: Christmas Fiction
Summary (from Goodreads): Perennial New York Times bestsellers and Audie Award finalists The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing have become inspirational holiday classics, and THE CHRISTMAS HOPE is poised to become a seasonal favorite in its own right
Patricia and Mark Addison have long given up the hope of having a meaningful Christmas. But this year, Patricia’s job as a social worker will lead her to a very special five-year-old. Against her better judgment, Patricia bends the rules and takes the little girl to her own home. Through the presence of Emily in their house, and her penetrating questions about heaven, the Addisons learn that there is no sorrow so great that faith cannot help you find your way through. And Christmas will once more be a time of joy in their home. THE CHRISTMAS HOPE is a story of love in the face of loss, joy when all seems hopeless, and how light can shine into the darkest places.
Review: This book was a cute little story, with sweet characters and a predictably happy ending. Although it may have been a little too idealistic at times, it was a nice Christmassy story that made me happy while reading it.
Becky, do you like this review better since it has two sentences instead of only one?
Rating: 3.5 stars
