Review: One Holy Night by J.M. Hochstetler

About the Book: For these uncertain times . . .
a deeply moving miracle story
for all seasons

As on that holy night so long ago ... in a world torn by sin and strife ... to a family that has suffered heart wrenching loss ... there will be born a baby ...

My Review: I'm a little bit torn on what to say about this book exactly. I got pretty attached to the characters and enjoyed reading about their daily lives throughout a year that was very difficult for them. I was encouraged by their deep faith, and I grieved when they did. Having said that, this book is overtly Christian. There isn't really any symbolism it's all spelled out for you. A lot of the book took place through conversations between the characters about their faith. At times, this felt like a little too much. And at other times, I felt like there was just a bit too many issues tackled for one small book. Having said that, I did genuinely enjoy it.

Oh and one more thing...I wouldn't exactly call this is a Christmas book despite the title.

Check it out on Amazon.
