    " A very spiritual and uplifting story. For a short book, it has a powerful message. Life doesn't turn out the way you expect. The book inspires you to make every day count. "

    " Just wasn't very good...super sappy and juvenile "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judi | 1/27/2014

    " Wouldn't rank it anywhere near great literature, but it's a nice little Christmas story. "

  • 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

  • 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
