It was my intent to post this review prior to Christmas (note book title!), but a variety of family crises prevented that. However, the book is worthy of a review and here it is.
At the heart of A Christmas Home is a town struggling to survive like so many others. A young man with multiple challenges ahead of him, especially if he loses his job and that fact is a strong possibility. And there is a light romantic interest for this same young man which also has to fit into this puzzle.
However, at the core of all these issues and problems is a story filled with an underlying theme of unconditional love. What better kind of story could there be for Greg Kincaid’s famous dog named Christmas! I do wish I had read the first book, A Dog Named Christmas, before this one, but it didn’t hinder my enjoyment of Kincaid’s storytelling and flowing writing style.
As in many small towns across America today, Greg Kincaid’s characters show rich courage and bravery, the will to overcome their limitations, and in so doing share with us a story of perseverance.
Although set in the Christmas season, A Christmas Home would be a delightful and uplifting read during any season of the year. I highly recommend it for families with upper elementary and middle school children to share as something to be read leading up to Christmas.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
