The Christmas Hope By Donna VanLiere – Book Review #47

The Christmas Hope is another of the series that has been made into a movie. We’re planning on buying them all!

The Christmas Hope

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

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.

My Thoughts

I’d seen the movie but hadn’t realised it was part of this series. The movie didn’t make me cry as much as this book did!

It’s a tear jerker but still such a lovely story of love, loss, but most of all hope.
I love how all the characters end up tied in some way and I totally wish I lived in this town with all these people!

    I haven’t heard of any of these books or films, but they do sound good. I like a good cry when I’m reading!

    This sounds delightful and especially at this time of year when I think we all get a bit more sane in the heart at least if not in the pocket! Think I may ask for this for my birthday #ReadWithMe
