I love to make Christmas cookies. I pull out Mom's recipies and some I've grown to love over the years. They are sweet, yummy, and who cares if they aren't nutritious? I just read two books by Robin Jones Gunn that remind me of Christmas cookies. Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas are both about Miranda Carlson, the daughter of an actress who is a single mother. The clues her mother left her led her to England one Christmas on a search for her father. I won't tell whether she finds her dad, but she does find her Father and his Son--but the book isn't preachy and really isn't about her conversion--which is really more of a gentle unveiling than a knock off a horse. The books are what you'd expect Christmas books to be--heartwarming and sweet--kind of like Christmas cookies.
If you'd like to win one of these, leave a comment. I'll pick a winner next Saturday. They would make a good Christmas present for a reader.
