Jason F. Wright, author of Christmas Jars (see Jeremy’s post on January 13), has a new book out this season, The 13th Day of Christmas. I remember that when I read Christmas Jars, I felt the desire to get started on my own jar savings plan right away Will this new book live up to the national bestseller that his first story, Christmas Jars, became?
Released just a few days ago, this is Wright’s tenth book, and the plot, like the theme of all his books, centers around his deep faith in God and God’s plan for us on earth. The title references the possibility of a lost verse in the famous “12 Days of Christmas” song. Nine-year-old Charlee is critically ill, and her family has fallen on hard times. On December 12, Charlee discovers a note that promises twelve days of gifts and stories that will reveal the truth behind the Christmas carol with the hint of a miracle to come.
I was skeptical about Christmas Jars and ended up reading it through to the end, even shedding some tears. I’m looking forward to first reading the book myself and then sharing it with others. Could be the best stocking stuffer this year!
