Book review: The Christmas Candle, Max Lucado
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A sweet and predictable story about the angels, miracles and the power of faith.
Since the 1600s, every 25 years an angel visits the chandler in a tiny Cotswold village, and touches a candle. Whoever receives the candle and prays over it before Christmas receives their wish.
In 1864, the aging chandler and his wife await the angel. But this year, so many people need a miracle, including the chandler's family. Now in his 70's, he won't survive another 25 years for the next visitation, and he has no heirs to continue the candle-making business. Is this the end of the Christmas candles?
