Okay, time to break out the Christmas books! Tomorrow, I will have a whole list of Christmas books to share with you, but today, I wanted to highlight an Audiobook that I just recently finished and just had to share about ahead of time! So, without further ado, let’s hop right in!
Through the Tunnel
By Rebekah A. Morris
About the Book: “I hate being a foster kid!” Fourteen-year-old Lissa had thought those words dozens, if not hundreds, of times over the last twelve years. She and her twin brother, Leigh, had been foster kids for as long as they could remember. Naturally shy, this life of bouncing around from one foster home to another, of changing schools mid-term, and of never having a real place they could call home had left Lissa with feelings of insecurity and doubt. Would they ever have a real home? Why didn’t anyone want them? Then one cold, winter afternoon, Lissa persuades her brother to make believe that a tunnel under a snow covered bridge is the entrance to a new world and a new life; together they walk through it, and it changes their lives forever.
My Review: This book was so sweet! I’ve always had a tender spot for orphan/foster kids and this book made the that spot even more tender. The relationship between Lissa and Lee was precious. Lissa seemed more like a 12-year-old to me than a 14-year-old, but then, not everyone matures the same way, and she definitely didn’t seem like a baby, but more like a frightened kitten afraid to love. The Salvation story and explanation of eternal security were simple enough for all ages to understand. Oh, and did I mention CHRISTMAS? Most of the story centers around Christmas and I just loved the scene about them decorating!
Note: There is a mention of stockings, but not of Santa Claus. Other than that, I have no complaints!
I highly recommend the book and audiobook, so please, check out this story and enjoy it with your family! I have an eBook and audiobook, but I really hope to get a paperback someday! Click here to purchase! When you do, you are supporting a self-published author, and believe me, all us Self-Publishers appreciate that!
