The Unfinished Gift by Dan Walsh

I absolutely loved this book! about a time when many family's were split up because of the war (story was set in 1943) and a young boy finds himself with out either of his parents. He's sent to live with a Grandpa he's never met, who's not the friendliest guy! God uses this little boy in an amazing way. This story tells of how God can use those bad situations that happen in our lives and use them for good! The story is very sad and you'll need a box of tissues beside you to read it, but well worth the read! I started this book and couldn't put it down, the story is so captivating. It is very well written especially considering that its Dan Walsh's first novel!! Its a great Christmas book and would be a wonderful gift for the book readers on your list! I have nothing bad to say about this book, I loved every bit of it! Thanks for a great read!!

The Christmas Dog, by Melody Carlson

This book was such a great Christmas book! The story is about and older lady who's pretty lonely. She also is unsure about a new neighbor, who shows up one day in the house behind her. She has a couple of surprises with some guests showing up. The christmas dog not only finds a warm home, but also helps to change hearts! This book is a good reminder on how we need to be treating our neighbors and what the Christmas season is all about. I started this book and then just couldn't put it down! I really did enjoy reading it! Its a little short, but not in a bad way. I was able to get through the book in a couple of days (which is nice when you have two busy kids running around lol), but it was still a really good read! I'd encourage everyone to pick up a copy of this book!!!
