Allie Pleiter has become one of my favorite Christian writers, and this book is a great example of why It tells the story of Mary, a new Christian with something in her past that she s not proud of, and her attempts to help a small town in Kentucky heal some civic wounds by putting on a Christmas pageant One of the reasons I like Pleiter is that she manages to tell the truth about life and God and give you an HEA without making it look like God is a cosmic Santa Claus and the Christian life is Allie Pleiter has become one of my favorite Christian writers, and this book is a great example of why It tells the story of Mary, a new Christian with something in her past that she s not proud of, and her attempts to help a small town in Kentucky heal some civic wounds by putting on a Christmas pageant One of the reasons I like Pleiter is that she manages to tell the truth about life and God and give you an HEA without making it look like God is a cosmic Santa Claus and the Christian life is one of unending fun Yet she s never depressing, either There are a couple of lines in here that resonated so strongly with me I may never forget them I haven t read the first books in this series, but I intend to
