THE CHRISTMAS STAR
Christmas time is the magical time of the year. It’s my favorite holiday when there is lights on the buildings, on the roof tops, the trees are bright and beautiful with the lights and ornaments all over them in the windows of the stores. Our small town use to look so jolly and peaceful with the beautiful new white fluffy snow falling and sparkling with the Christmas lights glowing on it. The music coming out of the speakers. Santa on the Corner or at his Santa house waiting for the children to climb on his lap to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. Our Church would have the Choir singing. the children would be laughing and giggling.
So now as you picture my small town walk down the street into Jimmy’s Reed’s story and hear what it is like at Christmas in December 1945. Get ready for some twist and turns in the road and hang on it’s a little slipper out.
You will find as you meet Jimmy he is very angry right now and it’s going to be Christmas soon. So why is Jimmy so angry on one of the holidays that’s suppose to be the peaceful time of the year? Well his Father was one of the Marines that didn’t make it home from the war.
Jimmy’s Mom hangs the Congressional Medal Of Honor every Christmas for the last three years. Rather then making Jimmy happy it only makes him mad.
Well a miracle comes and brings Jimmy Holiday happiness again after all Christmas is the time they say of miracles right?
This book is loaded with Characters and action that makes this story a wonderful book.
Ace Collins shows his love of the era and Bible. He makes his characters and town come alive so you feel you are right there in the story with Jimmy as the story unfolds.
I recommend this book highly, you won’t want to put this book down because it keeps you turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next.
I received this book free from Abingdon Press for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are totally mine and no one else’s.
