Christmas Candle Book Review

I was given the chance to review the Christmas Candle book through Booksneeze in exchange for an honest blog review. 

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.

My Review

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.

What has been your favorite holiday read this year so far?
