Losing her parents at the young age of 12 years old on Christmas Eve. Elaina has not celebrated Christmas ever since. Oh how she wish she could just talk to her parents again. Why did God choose to take them away from her. Be careful what you wish for. When the message comes to her to learn the true meaning of Christmas and get back in the Christmas Spirit and she has seven days to do it in along with 3 episodes that can lead to her death. Can she do this, will she quit blaming God for taking her parents away from her.
This small short story has a powerful message throughout and brought tears to my eyes at times.
Excellent reading Highly recommended. Look for this at other books written by this wonderful author.
The one thing that really drove me crazy, though, is that the heroine is 24 years old. 24! Yet she has been very gainfully employed in a high-level position, apparently for some time. She seems to be very educated but I don't know when she had time to go to college. Even more glaring, her two *younger* brothers (who are supposedly strong Christians) are both happily married with 3 and 5 children respectively? The timing just doesn't work for me.
Nor does the progression of the relationship between Nick and Elaina. I just don't see this stuff happening in the real world that I live in.
Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of potential here and a good plot but it just isn't fleshed out enough for me and the niggling details derailed it. Call me a Humbug!
The story is good reading for the holiday season and beyond, because the plot reminds us to put our losses into perspective. I plan to do something for someone else this season, rather than allowing my losses to guide my heart. Excellent and inspiring read!
Blessings to all!
