Book Review of The Shoe Box by Francine Rivers


Author Francine Rivers is a wonderful story teller. Her book, The Shoe Box is a pleasant and easy read, keeping me interested enough to continue reading until the end. It took me less than an hour to finish but make a big impact. The Shoe Box is one of the more versatile books in my collection and has become one of my favorites.

The story begins as Timmy, a dear six year old comes to live in a foster home, bringing with him a mysterious box. My heart was warmed as his foster family showed him everyday Christian love and in return, Timmy showed them the true meaning of Christmas.

At the end of the book, after Timmy's story, you will find the biblical account or the Christmas story, from the bookds of Matthew and Luke. It is presented in the easy to understand New Living Translation.

In addition to these two beautiful stories there are more treasures included. You will find that throughout the book are many insights into the author's family traditions and some wonderful recipes.

This is a lovely book that will continue to reside on my bookshelf and serve as a Christmas tradition in my home. This year it will be a special gift item for family and friends.

I recommend The Shoe Box as it is just as valuable for relaxing reading on any quiet afternoon, as it is for family reading on Christmas Eve.
