Grace and the Christmas Angel is a beautiful new Christmas book from bestselling author Lucinda Riley and her son Harry Whittaker. It’s a heartwarming story that celebrates the love of family and highlights the magic of miracles.
It’s Christmas Eve and everything is ready for the next morning. Grace and her little brother are getting ready to perform in a special Christmas Eve nativity at her school. She’s nervous because she will be singing a Christmas carol all on her own, but her mother reassures her that when she sees her daddy watching she will forget about everybody else watching.
Grace’s dad is the captain of a fishing boat, and unfortunately he can’t come home tonight because of a big storm out on the sea. Grace doesn’t want to put the angel on top of the Christmas tree without him, so she goes to sleep holding the angel.
Hope is the Christmas Angel and she hears Grace asking for help. She sets out to assist Grace’s dad and calms the sea so he and the other boats can sail home, and Grace is so happy to have her dad home for Christmas.
The book features beautiful illustrations by Jane Rey, there are a few double spreads that really bring the small seaside town to life. It’s a wonderful story to reignite a child’s belief that there’s a guardian angel looking out for them, and it makes a great book to share together with your children this Christmas. It also features a beautiful angel ribbon marker inside.
Grace and the Christmas Angel is available in hardback for a recommended retail price of R215.
