A Holiday Miracle in Apple Blossom by June McCrary Jacobs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Source: Received ARC to review
Genre: Christmas romance
Book Description: When her student, six-year-old Mary Noel, survives a car accident over Thanksgiving break, Amber and her new friend, Paul, are determined to cheer her up during the holidays. But Mary Noel’s most painful injury is the loss of her dog. The more withdrawn Mary Noel becomes, the more Amber and Paul need a miracle—a miracle that requires the entire community’s help.
My thoughts: This is a heartwarming story. It is a great little book to be enjoyed during the Christmas season.
Amber Kellen is informed by the Principal of the school she teaches at that one of her students has been in an accident. The little six year old is traumatized. She was injured, but watched her beloved dog die in the accident. She has slipped into depression, and is struggling.
To help the family with their astronomical medical bills, Amber teams up with Paul to figure out ways to help out the family. What ensues is a miracle.
The main miracle may be the bringing of Amber and Paul together.
This book is illustrates the love of the Savior during the sacred season of Christmas. In so many ways, Amber and Paul, seek the will of the Lord and ways that they can help to bring to pass His purposes.
The book is short and sweet.
