Robert Reed gave his life for his country in the early days of World War II. His sacrifice was honored when his widow and son were presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor. At Christmas, the final decoration Marge Reed hangs on the family's tree is that medal. Rather than being a symbol of honor for young Jimmy Reed that shining star represents loss, pain, and suffering. Yet a message delivered by one of Robert's fellow soldiers and a mystery letter found in a Bible put a father's sacrifice and faith into perspective and bring new meaning to not just the star hanging on the Christmas tree but the events of the very first Christmas. Then, when least expected, a Christmas miracle turns a final bit of holiday sadness into a joy that Jimmy has never known.

Our customer reviews

It\'s Christmas, 1945, but while many Americans are rejoicing, Jimmy Reed is still grieving the loss of his father. His pain causes him to make questionable choices, but a message delivered by a soldier and the discovery of a letter from his father shines a new light on his circumstances. This is a heartwarming tale of a Christmas miracle, set in the WWII-era South; one of my favorite settings for a novel, by the way. With a little humor and the occasional history lesson thrown in, this is a story for the whole family to enjoy. 5 stars Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Pump Up Your Book book review bloggers program.
