All these many years, I have had this book and never read it. ..because I also had the movie. I love the movie thinking it followed the book...but recently I learned that the movie did not follow the storyline of the book. Some significant differences! I have some of my books stored since moving so I bought an ebook from Amazon and read it! I love the book, great story! And though I like the movie, I wish they would have stayed true to the book!
Extra bonus. ..As a result of this book the author has been able to help thousands of negleted children in ways that would not be possible otherwise. Do yourself a favor and get a great read and also help in a small way with these precious children! Hope this helps to make up your mind! You will find joy in the story. Read the book to find out the real story behind the movie!
Category: Fiction, Christian, possibly historical romance.
Audience: Christian, family, children, young adult.
I am grateful to have learned of this book while reading a Dan Poynter book on self-publishing.
From page one, this story grabbed me and did not let go until I finished it.
It reads as if it is a true story. Indeed, I was convinced it was a true story until I read several bits about the author being an advertising executive, which was much different from the narrator of the story, who was supposedly a partner in a wedding suit shop.
Still, it is possible the author is both, for all I know, but I digress.
This is a beautiful story that will capture the imagination of any child and that will be Geat medicine to any young father who deceives himself into believing he can make up for missed moments because there is time later always to shower his kids with greater gifts than time.
I learned this lesson myself the hard way. I thought my business would make possible gifts beyond my two sons's wildest dreams. I was wrong and I now know that.
Every young entrepreneur must read this book. I command it!
I am giving four stars only because I feel it should be made clear that this is a work of fiction. Well, a price reduction to $3.99 would also be nice.
The story is a Christian one. However, it does have themes that we all can relate to: love, loss, and the value of family among others. What is also enticing about this classic holiday work, though, is the writing. Evans has a style that is so easy on the mind's ear that I found myself dashing through it without missing a beat of the meanings expressed and without losing the savory descriptions.
If you want a Christmas story with many poignant messages, then this is the novel you should read. If you are a Christian, then the tale is additionally profound.
The story revolves around a struggling family of three. Living in a cramped one-bedroom apartment, their lives changed when they replied upon a unique ad by a devout widow to move in to her spacious home in exchange of some elderly care. The father discovered a magical box that used to contain a Bible. It was this very box that gave him the answer to Mary's (the elderly widow woman) all important question. Eventually, Mary's parting gift is something that he knows he will treasure forever.
This edition is a collector's delight. Hardbound. The cover is simple, decked with just a single star and an ornate frame. The pages are made of thick paper with uneven pages which I love to thumb about.
