About the Book:

Dr. Christopher Ringle is the last person you’d expect to find moonlighting as Santa Claus at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving. But it is there that he meets a young man named Molar Alan, who desperately needs a new perspective on the underlying value of Christmas. Dr. Ringle recruits Mo and his older brother as volunteers at a nearby children’s hospital for the holiday season. At the hospital, Mo is tasked to help bring holiday cheer to the young cancer patients on the fifth floor. His biggest challenge is befriending a decidedly angry girl who is so embarrassed by her scarred appearance that she hides her face behind the safety of a paper bag.

My Review:
I want to tell you that this is a magnificent story. A story so powerful with the absolute true meaning of Christmas. It made me laugh, it made me cry. But most of all, it made me realize that there is more to Christmas than just Santa Claus and presents and the love of a family. It’s about alot more than that, helping one another,  selflessness, and miracles.

It is a Christmas tradition in itself to start with your families…reading this amazing God filled Christmas story. A book that I am sure you won’t want to put down! I know I didn’t!

I will give this book 5 stars. I will give the author two thumbs up for a job well done. A story that you WILL NOT want to miss!
