The Christmas Blessing By Donna VanLiere – Book Review #46

The Christmas Blessing is the second book in the Christmas Hope series by Donna VanLiere. I’ve been looking forward to reading these all year!

The Christmas Blessing

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

In The Christmas Shoes, young Nathan Andrews was a child who lost his mother to cancer. Now his deepest wish is to become a doctor. When a stranger named Robert gave him the money to buy his mother a pair of shoes for her last Christmas, both Robert and Nathan learned the deepest lessons of love and giving. Now a medical student in his third year, Nathan realizes there are still things to be learned about faith, blessings, and sacrifice. Lessons he will learn from Meghan Sullivan-a young woman born with a hole in her heart that has not kept her from becoming a champion runner. And lessons learned from a young boy named Charlie, who teaches how to live a life of true courage. Together, they will help guide Nathan through the darkest period in his life. The Christmas Blessing is an inspiring about hope existing in the darkest places, and love is always the greatest gift of all.

My Thoughts

Loved it 🙂 I don’t usually get weepy when reading, (unless I’m reading a true story about horrible things that have happened to a child, however, I don’t read those kinds of books anymore because it makes me too sad) but this one brought a tear to my eye.

I enjoyed reading more about Nathan and seeing the man he’s grown in to.

This second book has also been made into a movie but it’s called Miracle Of The Heart rather than The Christmas Blessing.

    Sounds like one which would make me weepy. And I’d definitely need tissues for the film #readwithme
