The Christmas Tree Treasure Hunt is like a combination of The Amazing Race and The Ultimate Gift. It has adventure in foreign countries, treasures abounding, emotional surprises, and the realizing that a dear family member loved you so much that they wanted you (or, well, Grace) to learn something important from it all.
This story expresses the gift of knowledge, how sisters never truly break apart, and most importantly... the beauty of forgiveness. I love how this group of authors collaborated so well to create an excellent Christmas story that warms your heart. The book is written with solid Christian faith following every chapter, and intertwines well with the message being shown in the plot.
Love this book.
NOTE: Mature content is included in part of the back-story behind the main plot, but other than that, it is a clean read.
The story is about Grace, a twin who has had many losses in her life. She is unable to forgive her twin sister for what she considers the worst betrayal.
Her late Grandmother gives her a quest - to travel to different places to find ornaments and stories about love and forgiveness and friendship and God's love.
The book would not be attractive for everyone. For someone who is a Christian, it is a wonderful reminder of the qualities Christians are taught and are supposed to express in their lives.
During her journey, Grace is reminded over and over of what she lost when she separated herself from the twin who had been her other half for most of her life. Grace's loss is emphasized as she travels around the world. She meets people who were part of her grandparent's lives as they traveled the world do do missionary works.
Each of the chapters are based in different parts of the world and written by an author who lives in that part of the world. It is a wonderful way to see things from a new perspective.
This is not a book for everyone. But, it is a wonderful book about faith and being reminded of the forgiveness and love one should have for others. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it.
Grace grows up a little more each time she collects a new ornament and learns a new side to her family story. Yes the story is about forgiveness and not letting anger destroy the most important relationship you could ever have, your relationship with God, but I was especially touched by the reminder that we need to see our families as whole people and not stay stuck in our childhood view of them.
