Christmas Candle by Max Lucado
Glowing bright with a timeless message, The Christmas Candle will warm your heart.
It’s 1864 in Gladstone, England, a tiny village in the Cotswolds. Nothing out of the ordinary ever happens here. Except at Christmas time. This year, Edward Haddington, a lowly candle maker is visited by a mysterious angel. That angel silently imparts a precious gift. The candle maker and his wife, Bea, have to make a difficult choice—who among them most needs a Christmas miracle?
As hope blossoms in wintertime, soon the entire town glows brightly with Christmas joy.
I personally enjoyed this sweet little story. I feel it was a great fiction read for the holiday season. It kind of falls in line with all of the Christmas movies I watch on Hallmark at this time of year.
The setting of this story is also in another small town. I just have a strong passion for reading stories based in a small town. Small towns just have so much life in them. This town is no different. They have a story worth sharing from generation to generation.
I wouldn’t say that this book deserves a 5 star rating, but I would say I’d give it at least a 3 star.
