“The Twenty-four Days Before Christmas”
by Madeleine L’Engle
The Austin family lived in a time before computers, cell phones, and TVs. Father was a doctor. Mother stayed home caring for John, Vickie and Susan. During advent the family planned a special activity for each day before Christmas. It was a busy time. Vickie was looking forward to being the angel in the Christmas pageant! Mother was expecting a baby in early January and Vickie was concerned that the baby would come early and Mother wouldn’t be home for Christmas or the pageant! When a huge snow storm arrived on Christmas Eve the pageant was cancelled, much to Vickie’s disappointment, but a wonderful surprise happened that filled Vickie’s heart with love! Can you guess what it was?
This is a story of Christian faith, family values and God’s love. I hope you enjoy the book!
