By Authors Freda Roberts and Eve Rice
The true meaning of Halloween is lost on most of us. I bet you did not know that Halloween is a magical night where good things happen to those who put a jack-o-lantern with a candle lit inside of it and if you a child who is on a special list, your jack-o-lantern might be filled with lots of toys and candy. How did I come to learn about this great magical night, I read Eve Hallows an inspirational story that will renew your faith in miracles, special people and the magic of Halloween by authors Freda Roberts and Eve Rice.
It all begins with a little boy named Kyle who was in the hospital and a special nurse named Matthew who was determined to make Halloween special for him and the rest of the children that could not go trick or treating because they were injured or sick. So, sit back while I tell you the amazing things that happened to her and what might happen to you if your name gets placed on Eve's list and you too will enjoy and learn the miracle of Halloween.
Poor Kyle was stuck in a hospital bed all alone but not for long. His good friends Adam and Emily came to visit him. They would remember this visit and what happens next forever as Nurse Matthew, with a special twinkle in his eyes, tells them about the greatest Halloween ever. Living in the country Nurse Matthews tells these wide eyed children about how he learned about the tradition of Halloween and why this particular one, that our authors related to this reader, should be widespread and told to every child and adult throughout the world.
Going out into the field of his farm he wanted to pick a pumpkin for Halloween. He knew after reading up on it that if you placed a lit candle inside of it great things might happen. As the authors, through the eyes of Nurse Matthew describes the night, the colors and the beauty of what he sees, you can picture the scene as it unfolded before his very eyes. Placing the candle inside of his Jack-o-Lantern a beam of light show into the night sky and then something magical happened. He fell down. That was not the magical part but what happened after he fell was and you won't believe it until you read it for yourself. Nurse Matthew's adventure with his new found friends who picked him after his fall will astound and surprise the reader and renew your faith in miracles, friendship and the magic of one night that brings so much joy to children.
As he tells the story about each of the people he met and the part they played in creating this special night we meet Eve, who everyone wants to know and whose list you definitely want to be on in order to get the special surprise on Halloween night. Looking up into the sky is where it all began with one special star. A beam of light, Eve Hallows and the need to help others, and the will to believe that you can make a difference in the lives of children and so many when you really care about what you do, as Nurse Matthew definitely does.
Who is Eve and what part does she play in making Kyle's night special? On the next Halloween night carve out your special Jack-o-Lantern, put a lit candle inside of it and place it in your window. When the sun comes up the next morning your basket might just be filled with something great and wonderful too.
If you believe in Eve Hallows you know
Place a candle inside of your pumpkin to glow
Wait and see the next morning what Eve will do
If you believe in her your Halloween wish will come true.
This is a great story that teaches both adults and grownups that there are special people in this world that really care about what they do and children in this world, like Kyle who are unselfish and kind to others. What Kyle does at the end of the story will endear you to him forever and renew your faith in kids.
I really think that these characters could be brought back in more stories to see what other adventures Kyle, Emily and Adam could experience themselves.
This is a great story to read to children of all ages on Halloween night.
