This is the best written Christian Christmas novel I have ever read. The sophisticated writing style and fully developed plot set it aside as a memorable read.

Format: Kindle Edition
Fourteen-year-old Marissa, recovering from hepatitis, is forced to stay with her grandmother in Pennsylvania for Christmas instead of going to Hawaii with her family. So the grandmother tells Marissa a story about helping orphaned European children in post-war England. The teenager matures as a result.

I liked the characters, but the plotting and style were mediocre. Grammatical errors in the Kindle edition didn’t help. Bunn’s “Book of Hours” has much better plotting and style, but his “Acts of Faith” series (with Janette Oke) is the best thing he’s ever written. I can find no flaws in it. Still, “Tidings” might have been a great novel in the hands of Christian writing duo Bodie and Brock Thoene. Their "Zion Covenant" and "Zion Diaries" series, set in World War II England and Europe, are superb. My favorite is "The Gathering Storm," which tells the story of Loralei falling in love with a mysterious stranger as she helps orphaned children settle into a London church. With this novel in my mind, “Tidings” was a real disappointment. Guideposts’ “Blue Hill Library” series and Julie Klassen’s novels are also better written and plotted.

Tidings Of Comfort And Joy by Davis Bunn
Love this story. Starts out with Marissa and she's bedridden and her family leave for their Hawaii vacation. She's to stay with her grandmother. It's been a year since her grandfather died.
She is recovering what some say is leukemia, some say it's hepatitis. Marissa has had it with tests and needles and her grandmother will protect her. Marissa has lost a Christmas without her family. So has her grandmother and
she tells Marissa the tale of her trip to England in 1945. She tells her the whole story of why she was there and what happened and why it drew her back to church and God and faith.
