    Sweet Christmas Story

    The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado is a short Christmas novella. It was a really quick read, and a good first Christmas read of the season! While the story was very sweet, I found it to be quite confusing at the beginning. I just could not figure out exactly what was happening. I eventually caught on, but it was a little frustrating. I also got confused with ALL of the characters. There were a lot of them and they were just barely developed. I mean, the book is less than 200 pages, so it's not a lot of time to tell a story and let readers get to know a slew of characters. When it was all said and done, I did enjoy the book and really liked the message. The book has recently been made into a movie as well, and I'm hoping to go see it. It will be interesting to see how the movie compares to the book. [3 stars]

    I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    It only took me one afternoon to read "The Christmas Candle" by Max Lucado—ten short chapters with a thought-provoking message about Whom we put our trust in when we pray. I liked this story.

    Set mostly in 1864, it’s the story of a town with a legacy. Every 25 years, on the fourth Sunday of Advent, an angel visits their candle maker and touches one candle. This candle brings a blessing to one chosen person. 1864 is the year of the next visit.

    But this town also has a new minister who is a bit skeptical, refusing to cooperate with the traditions that have grown up around the angel’s visit. Discussions about this leave both townspeople and minister confused. To complicate matters, everyone wants the blessing of the candle this year and the candle maker has no son to carry on the legacy in 1889. The Christmas candle has brought everyone so much to fret about.

    I recommend "The Christmas Candle" by Max Lucado to those who enjoy Christmas novellas with hopeful messages. The Victorian England setting, the way the characters communicated with each other even when they disagreed, the pace of the book, and the outcome were all just right. I enjoyed reading this book.

    I received a complimentary eCopy of "The Christmas Candle" in exchange for this honest review.

    Are you ready to heat up the wassail and put on your favorite Christmas carols? I just had the chance to review a novella that is perfect for the Christmas season.
    Max Lucado has truly a gifted writer. I’ve enjoyed many of his books and The Christmas Candle is no exception.
    This story begins in 1664. A candle maker and his wife are visited by an angel in the middle of the night. The angel touches a candle and it begins to glow. Because of a kindness the candle winds up in the hands of a needy widow. That candle will wind up changing her life.
    You see, whoever receives this special candle receives an answer to their most earnest prayer.
    For the next 200 years, a descendent of the candle maker is visited every 25 years and touches a candle. The people who live in the little village of Gladstone have come to anticipate the miracles of the candle.
    But times have changed. A young new reverend has come to town and is a bit too sophisticated to believe in such a silly old story.
    What happens next is truly inspiring. It left me with a smile of my face and a little hope in my heart.
    This is a wonderful Christmas novella. I think it would be a wonderful gift for the Christmas season to friends and family.
    I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com® for my honest opinion.
