THE SHOEBOX : A CHRISTMAS STORY
This tender Christmas novella tells the story of Timmy O'Neil, a foster child who arrives at his new home with a very mysterious shoe box. At first glance, it's nothing special -- just an ordinary box with a red lid and the words Running Shoes printed on the side.
But Timmy carries it with him wherever he goes, and when people ask him what's inside, he smiles and says, "Just things."
As Timmy settles into his new, loving home, he remains unwilling to share the secrets of his shoe box...until the beauty of the church Nativity pageant inspires him to open his heart and give the most precious gift of all.
THIS HEARTWARMING READ DOESN'T TAKE LONG BUT IT PACKS AN EMOTIONAL PUNCH AND IS PEPPERED WITH PERSONAL NOTES AND RECIPES FROM FRANCINE RIVERS ABOUT THE TRADITIONS SHE AND HER FAMILY CELEBRATE AT CHRISTMAS TIME. DEFINITELY DESTINED TO BE A CHRISTMAS CLASSIC AT MY HOUSE!
