About Book: 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.

Review: I’m thankful for the review copy of a book that is filled with wonder and Christmas magic. It will warm your heart and put a smile on your face. I’m amazed at how many of this authors books have given me hope, helped healed my hurting soul and forever touch my heart; this novella is no exception.

Reverend Pillington arrives in Gladstone to apply for the position of Pastor. Everyone he meets there asks him the same question; “Have you heard of the Christmas Candle legacy?” H HisHHis answer, “No.” They moved him from person to person so quickly that no one had the time to tell him about the legacy.

When Rev Pillington finally finds out he’s skeptical .Why would God only answer the prayer of one when there were so many that needed help. “This was a superstitious tale he thought”

Someone asks him, “What are you afraid of Reverend?... The mystery of God unsettles us all…But isn't mystery where God works? If he does only what we understand, is He God?”

What I love most about Max Lucado books (and this one included) is how he packs so much in such a short novella with characters I instantly care for. I highly recommend reading this Christmas tale. It’s a story of hope that will inspire your heart and increase your faith.
