The Christmas Star

ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS STAR

Robert Reed gave his life for his country in the early days of World War II. His sacrifice was honored when his widow and son were presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor. Each Christmas the final decoration Madge Reed hangs on the family’s tree is that medal. Rather than being a symbol of honor for young Jimmy Reed that shining star represents loss, pain, and suffering.

Yet a letter delivered by one of Robert’s fellow soldiers and a mystery posed in that letter put a father’s sacrifice and faith into perspective and bring new meaning to not just the star hanging on the Christmas tree but the events of the very first Christmas. Then, when least expected, a Christmas miracle turns a final bit of holiday sadness into a joy that Jimmy has never known.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Jimmy Reed is still dealing with his losing his dad and even though he died a hero in the military, that doesn’t stop the hurt. Jimmy finally finds himself in some dangerous situations and now has no way out of them, except for a miracle. Calvin the bus driver has nothing, but is always giving to people, and is always happy. When circumstances brought Jimmy and Calvin together, Jimmy’s life started changing.

I love Calvin and the way Ace Collins used Calvin’s character to speak to Jimmy. Jimmy was thinking about money, but because of riding with Calvin while he gave out speical Christmas gifts, Jimmy realized that a person can be rich and not have money or anything. I appreciate the author writing a book such as this for all of use to read this Christmas season because it made me think more about giving than receiving, and reminded me that it is not how much money and things we have, but what we do with what we do have.

I highly recommend Ace Collin’s new book The Christmas Star for an awesome Christmas read! Run out and grab your copy now! Or better yet, click HERE and order it from Amazon.
