No matter how much she protests, Rose's heart is warmed by the boys and their overprotective father. With the help of the Christmas Candle, the hurting hearts of those in need receive the most beautiful Christmas miracle of all.
As always, Mary Connealy pens a fast paced story filled with characters who don't realize they can't always do it all themselves. Unfortunately, asking for help is not even a thought, much less 'said and done.' In true Connealy style, The Christmas Candle thaws even the most frozen hearts and lets the warmth of faith and trust flow in. I loved this sweet novella and know you will, too.
