I really enjoyed this short novel. It might not have had hundreds of pages but it was packed with powerful messages that stayed with me. This contemporary Christian fiction is an eye-opening book that I would recommend to everyone.
The author has done an exemplary job of capturing society’s views on multiple issues. It offers food for thought and insight into many issues. Homelessness is explored as well as motives for going to church. Giving graciously and joyfully is addressed. Serving others is discussed. His story is God glorifying. Shouldn’t every book that is classified as “Christian” bring glory to God?
The characters are relatable and believable. Grace and Matthew, the children, are adorable. Enoch, the angel, was riveting and I wanted to keep “listening” to him speak. The author did such a good job with this book. I could not put it down.
Scripture is not sprinkled throughout this book, but rather it is heavily dropped in all the way. It took me from page one to become invested. This is a story that should move and change everyone who reads it. I hope to see it on the Hallmark Channel at Christmas on day.
It get a huge recommendation from me. Everyone should read it. I rated it 5+ out of 5 stars but wanted to go higher. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but all opinions and the review are my own honest opinion.
