The Shoe Box is a tender and moving Christmas story from author Francine Rivers. The book also includes a note from the author about the significance of her story, plus her own family's favorite traditions and holiday recipes. This is a great book! I have one of my own and thought that it was the perfect time of year to give one to one of the wonderful people who comment on my blog posts before November 16th. The draw will take place on the 17th.
Excerpt from the book's jacket:
Timmy O'Neil came to live with Mary and David Holmes on a cloudy day in the middle of September, two weeks after school started. He was a quiet little six year old boy with sorrowful eyes.
Not very long afterward, they wondered about the box he carried with him all the time. It as an ordinary shoe box with a red lid and the word Running Shoes printed on the side.
As Timmy makes new friends and finds a loving home with Mary and David, he remains unwilling to share the secret of his mysterious shoe box... until the night of the church nativity pagent opens his heart to one very special person.
The recipes in this book are fantastic and I know that the lucky winner will use at least one of them for Christmas dinner this year. I know I will. Good luck to everyone.
