Well... this book is for you.
"The Christmas Blessing" is the sequel to VanLiere's "The Christmas Shoes," and it's a better book overall. The characters are less stereotyped, the plot is somewhat less predictable, and the preachy passages have been toned down. Like the first book, it's also a tear-jerker, so keep the tissues handy.
In this book, we see the eight-year-old, sequin-shoe-buying boy after fifteen years have passed. He is now a medical student coping with life, death, and insecurities on rotation as a medical student in the hospital.
It is not necessary to have read "The Christmas Shoes" to read this book, although I imagine that most readers will take the books in order.
This book is recommended for anyone who enjoyed "The Christmas Shoes," enjoys sappy, romantic stories, or the miraculous nature of everyday family love. It might also be appropriate for students and others who are struggling with whether or not they have made the right choices.
