“Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter.”

Gideon’s Gift by Karen Kingsbury
Karen Kingbury is one Christian fiction Writer I love.Gideon's Gift is one awesome story off her  Red Gloves Series. It was even better than awesome, it was extraordinary! I fell in love with Gideon. 

The book is about a seven-year -old Leukemia patient called Gideon (isn’t that quite an exotic name for a girl?) and Earl Gibson, who lost his wife and only daughter in a car accident.

Though sick, little Gideon was determined to reach out to the lonely, angry and heartbroken Earl. Earl ungraciously rejected her gestures. He however became the answer to Gideon’s Christmas wish after truly comprehending the true meaning of Christmas. The book has a feel-good vibe to it but the message of Gideon‘s strong faith in the God of miracles gives us all the strength to fight.
I have to mention the cover... the cover is delectable!

I believe everyone from as young as Gideon to as old as Earl would enjoy it. It’s not Christmas yet but I’d already got one for my 11-year-old sister.
