  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/15/2014

    " Quite predictable story of the homeless man and the little girl with cancer. I don't mean to sound terrible, but it was just too much of the same as many stories during the holidays read. "

    " A great reminder of the true spirit of Christmas. "

    " I loved this! It is not at all imposssible for something like this to happen...Alot like some of the "God Wink" moments in SQuire Rushnells books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 11/20/2013

    " I really enjoyed this little book. We should not judge what the outside appearence of a person is, for we never no what path they have walked to bring them to their present circumstances. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aleli | 10/19/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 10/15/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 7/12/2013

    " Extremely predictable, but an excellent, feel good story that made me actually read portions aloud to my husband (of course he was held captive in the car). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 7/7/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 3/13/2013
