Barnes & Noble Christmas Keepsakes: Two Books in One: The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing

In The Christmas Shoes, a chance encounter between two strangers alters their lives forever. Eight-year-old Nathan is losing his beloved mother to cancer. His family is living a simple yet full life, struggling to hold on to every moment th...at they have together. Robert is a successful attorney who has everything-but has lost sight of what truly matters. When their paths cross on Christmas Eve, Robert is shopping for a family he hardly knows, and Nathan is shopping for the mother he is soon to lose. Through their meeting they will learn that the smallest things can make all the difference. In The Christmas Blessing, Nathan is now a medical student in his third year, and he realizes that there are still things to be learned about faith, blessings, and sacrifice. Lessons he will learn from Meghan Sullivan-a young woman born with a hole in her heart that has not kept her from becoming a champion runner. And lessons learned from a young boy named Charlie, who teaches him how to live a life of true courage. Together, they will help guide Nathan through the darkest period in his life. The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing, two of Donna VanLiere s most cherished bestselling novels, are inspirational stories about hope existing in the darkest places, teaching us that love is always the greatest gift of all.

"I would like to introduce you to this book. It has no plot. It is about moments, memories, fragments, falsehoods, and fantasies. ...It is about things that happened, which caused other things to happen, so that eventually stories emerged."

Her writing often transports readers into her own world. She explores her rich history through family pictures, memories, and recollections of childhood friends. She details pivotal moments that affected her life, inspired her writing, and that magically evolved into rich and wonderful stories that one is reluctant to put down. Lowry fans, and anyone interested in the writing process, will tremendously enjoy this poignant trip through a remarkable writer s past. Lois Lowry is known for her versatility and invention as a writer. She has received two Newbery Medals, for Number the Stars and The Giver. Using family photographs and quotes from her books, the author provides glimpses into her life.
