One long-ago Christmas, Earl Gibson lost the two things most precious to him: his wife and daughter. Angry and heartbroken, he ended up living on the streets and abandoned any belief he'd once had in God.
Ten years later Big Earl meets Gideon, a seven-year-old leukemia patient who believes with all her heart that "Christmas means never having to ask God how much he loves us." Gideon is determined to reach this lonely and hurting man who hates Christmas--and he is just as determined to rebuff her. It will take a miracle for Earl to come to understand the true meaning of Christmas. But if he can accept what Gideon wants to give him, he might find that he can return the favor with a precious gift of his own.
In GIDEON'S GIFT, Karen Kingsbury reminds us that Christmas is still a time of miraculous possibilities if only we reach out to those around us.

This is the second book I have read by Karen Kingsbury
and found not surprisingly that it was yet another incredible touching Holiday tale by a remarkable author.

I read it in one sitting, from the first page to the last , with smiles and tears,
never wanting to put it down for even a minute.

My anyone who has not read this title or any of the other "Red Glove " series
of her books , I suggest you please do so.

It will instill and leave within you a most unforgettable
journey that you will treasure .
