Giveaway & Review for the highly moving "Prayers of a Stranger: A Christmas Story" by Davis Bunn @davisbunn @NelsonFiction

Prayers of a Stranger: A Christmas Story


Amanda Vance remains gripped in grief, as she and her husband Chris seek to heal from the loss of their daughter, who was still-born. Amanda and Chris have immersed themselves in work, both longing for a return of hope and passion to their lives and marriage. Just as Amanda is beginning to take steps beyond the protective walls she's erected around her heart, her neighbour offers her the chance to accompany her to Israel. What follows is an encounter with God in unexpected ways and places, a God seeking to restore hope to Amanda's heart while leading Chris to a place of strength and healing back home. 

Prayers of a Stranger is an emotional, hope-filled novel that brings to life the promise of Christmas, a promise of love and reconciliation and new beginnings. Amanda and Chris are characters who will make your heart ache with their pain, but also uplift you with their integrity, their faith, the noble impact their lives impart. Davis Bunn has crafted a beautiful novel that resonates on many levels. It is a novel that will not only entertain you, but lead you to open your heart this Christmas to all that God desires for you, proving again that it is more blessed to give than to receive. I greatly enjoyed this read, written with Bunn's usual skill, compelling characterization, and splendid prose. Put this novel on your "must read" list for this fall and Christmas season. You'll be glad you did! 5 out of 5 stars.

  2. My favorite Christmas-themed fiction book is Finding Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn. I read it (and the sequel) every year. The perfect cozy Christmas book to curl up with on a cold snowy day!
