Remebering Christmas by Dan Walsh - REVIEWED

About the Book:

Can one Christmas change a life forever?

Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls begging him to come home after his stepfather has an aneurysm, Rick is more than a little reluctant. What was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and dealing with the homeless guy who keeps hanging around the store. The one bright spot is the lovely and intriguing young woman who works at his side each day.

As Christmas nears, Rick's old life beckons, the hurts from his past loom large, and the decisions he makes will determine more than just where he spends Christmas Eve.

With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story that will have you remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.

My Thoughts:

I think Dan Walsh has just written a Christmas classic! Pull out your tissue and get ready to have your heart strings tugged until they are about to burst! This is a sweet, tender story about regular folks who face daunting circumstances. But rather than break under the load, they give their lives to Christ and bask in the assurance of His love for them.

And the love the characters in the story share with others makes an eternal difference in many lives. That's the take away value hidden in this precious story. When we live every day trusting Christ to meet our needs, He touches lives as we exercise our faith, and then turns around and just blesses us beyond what we could ever hope or imagine. This may be a work of fiction, but I've seen this truth lived out many, many times. I've been the recipient of that grace and blesssing.

This is a precious, precious story! If you've got readers on your gift list, you need look no further for the perfect gift - Remembering Christmas is IT!!
