Christmas Times a comin'
And I am so excited. I have already been reading Christmas books and listening to Christmas music.
I received The Unfinished Gift by Dan Walsh from Revell Publishing. This is the story of a little boy, who has lost his mother and his father is fighting overseas. The little boy is sent to live with his grandfather, whom he has never seen. It is days before Christmas and the little boy, Ian, only wants 3 things, to leave his grandfather's house, the soldier in his grandfather's attic and his Daddy to come home.
Dan Walsh spins an excellent tale. The book captured and held my attention from the first page through to the last word. This is one book I did not want to end and will be a book I read and reread every year. This book was impossible for me to know the end from the beginning.
I can't recommend this book enough. Click the link above or go to your Christian book store and buy it. You will NOT be disappointed. If you don't believe me, feel free to read the first chapter posted below. I'll bet you'll be hooked.
