Book Blog Tour Stop - The Christmas Star by Ace Collins

I'm so pleased to be hosting a book blog tour stop for author Ace Collins' new book, "A Christmas Star."


Robert Reed gave his life for his country in the early days of World War II. His sacrifice was honored when his widow and son were presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor. Each Christmas the final decoration Madge Reed hangs on the family’s tree is that medal. Rather than being a symbol of honor for young Jimmy Reed that shining star represents loss, pain, and suffering.

Yet a letter delivered by one of Robert’s fellow soldiers and a mystery posed in that letter put a father’s sacrifice and faith into perspective and bring new meaning to not just the star hanging on the Christmas tree but the events of the very first Christmas. Then, when least expected, a Christmas miracle turns a final bit of holiday sadness into a joy that Jimmy has never known.


I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As the child of "older" parents, I grew up hearing stories about the Depression years, the war years and the post WWII years, and some of my favorite ones were about the Christmases that my families celebrated.  Ace Collins takes his readers back to this time with this holiday story that is not only a story of the season, but also a gentle tale of morality and faith.

I highly recommend this book for holiday reading, and for reading anytime you might need a little inspirational lift during these trying times.
