"It was a perfect life. And it was hard for Eric Sanders to imagine how things could be any better." So begins the novel Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices. Eric seems to have resolved all of life's major issues, but in an instant, his world falls apart. While wrapping Christmas gifts for his wife and children, a policeman knocks on the door to tell him that his family was killed in a car accident. Consumed with grief, he knows it will take a Christmas miracle to ever find peace again, let alone enjoy the holidays. His world is in ruins. Amazingly, Eric finds that peace through the giving of the special presents he so lovingly created for his family, and from that simple gesture learns that giving to others with joy and love has a ripple effect. He discovers the true meaning of Christmas and, in the echo of the Christmas bells, realizes that death is not an ending but a transition. Love can never be extinguished. Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices is a heartfelt look at love and the fragility of life. This tiny treasure of a book will inspire readers to take pleasure in the wonders of everyday life and cherish each special moment - and it is sure to be this season's most talked-about holiday novel. "Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices has messages of love and wisdom to make your heart sing with the recognition of the miracle of life." -Mark Victor Hansen, coauthor, Chicken Soup for the Soul series "Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices is a beautiful illustration of why it makes a positive difference to choose to do good and reach out, even in the face of heart-numbing challenges. I know; I've been there." -Hyrum Smith, Founder/CEO, Franklin Covey, and best-selling author, What Matters Most… (more)

The book is small yet packs a powerful meaning and makes you think about how life can be ....
one minute your here and the next your not.... there is so much more... he brings his character to allow him to look back and face the places where love and hurt existed. But it's there he finds the true meaning of something bad can turn out to something good. A must read. ( )
