The Christmas Angel Project

amazon barnes & noble Christianbook.com Goodreads
Five women from different walks of life have become close friends through their book club–enjoying one another’s company even more than they enjoy the books. So when the leader of the book club unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the four remaining friends are stunned. They relied on Abby for inspiration and motivation. She was the glue that held them together, and they’re sure that without her the group can’t continue.

When the group gathers “one last time” to open a bag Abby’s husband gives them, they find Abby had made each of them an angel ornament for Christmas, crafted especially for each woman and accompanied by a sweet and personal note. Inspired by their beloved friend, together Cassidy, Louisa, Grace, and Belinda decide to commit themselves to becoming Christmas Angels to others in need. Each woman will use her life situation and talents to reach out and help others in her own unique way–little knowing that her own life and her relationships will be changed forever.

Hott Review:

Wow. I absolutely LOVED The Christmas Angel Project!

There is so much about The Christmas Angel Project to love but I think my favorite are the characters. I couldn’t help but to be drawn into their lives and see myself, and my deficiencies, reflected in all of them. Their healing and growth was overwhelming and gave me such hope it’s unfathomable. I love when God speaks to me and helps me to heal through reading.

There is a light romance or two but the overall theme of The Christmas Angel Project is how helping others will heal us.
