A wonderful reminder of the brevity of life and how you never know who's life you might touch and make a difference in. No need to wait for
Christmas. It's a wonderful read.

What a wonderful book! I read it in 95 minutes. Couldn't put it down. I loved how the characters weaved in and out of each others lives. Being 8 y/o when my Dad died on 12/31 I remember what a sad and confusing time it was. And how I was shifted from one relative's home to another for 2 weeks. People whispering. No one talking directly to me. Hearing my Uncle tell his daughter while I was playing on her sunporch that my Dad had died. I went back to playing with my doll. How I sat at the head of his coffin just knowing I would catch him breathing. And still not one soul came to me. No comfort, no hug, nothing. Mother craved and received all the attention. I don't want another child to ever go through that horrible experience alone. I really loved this book. Especially the talk Maggie had with Nathan about her going to Heaven. And how Jack handled her death with Nathan.

This is book one of the three Christmas Hope books. The #1 Single "The Christmas Shoes" by New Song is based on this book. This is a great book. A young boy at Christmas time is about to lose his mother to cancer. He wants to give her one final gift, a beautiful pair of Christmas shoes. He takes all his money to the local department store and chooses a beautiful pair of shoes for his mom. Like most young children he has no idea that his savings is worth so little. Robert, a lawyer with his own family troubles is behind the young boy in line, and he pays the difference. Just like God pays the difference for us by coming to this world as a baby at Christmas, and dying on the cross. Both are miracles.

Tear-jerking novel based on the #1 single song "The Christmas Shoes," which was then made into a made-for-tv movie. Helps remind you of what's important in life.
