Title: The Christmas Star
Author: Ace Collins
Do you like to give or to receive presents? Or do you like to both give and receive? Books are like presents as they are given by the author, and the audience receives the joy of what is in between the covers. So too the author receives as readers share their books with others, and the story inside just keeps on giving as it goes on to the next person.
Ace Collins is a very gifted writer who crafts tales that entertain, encourage and enrapture the heart of those who make time to enjoy reading them. We are very blessed when we remember those who have gone before us to lay down their lives for freedom, not just physical freedom, but spiritual freedom as well. In these pages, we are told of a father who goes overseas to serve during World War II, promising he will come home. On night the military shows up with a telegram, and then later the family is presented the Congressional Medal of Honor. Jimmy is struggling still with losing his father a couple of years after his father left home. Nothing about Christmas brings him hope anymore.
A few men and another school chum of Jimmy’s come together to make plans that would change all their futures for the better. However, what else transpires through the next couple of days begins to challenge Jimmy and bring him to a fork in the road of his life where he must choose a path.
With all that is happening in the world today, it would be easy to lose hope and focus in the Lord. While this is a fictional piece of work, what is inside will encourage and remind you of the hope that never wavers if it is based on the Lord. I fell in love with the novel the minute I started reading, and enthusiasm grew with each additional twist and turn of the plot.
My rating is 5+stars.
