From the Publisher
Patrick Collins is seven years old, and on his Christmas list are only three items. He wants the army to find his father. He wants to leave his grandfather''s house. And, for reasons even he doesn''t understand, he wants the soldier that''s tucked away in his grandfather''s attic.
Set at Christmastime in 1943, The Unfinished Gift tells in an engaging, simple style the story of a family, and reminds us of the surprising things that affect powerful change in our hearts--like a young boy''s prayers, a shoebox full of love letters, and even an old wooden soldier, long forgotten. This nostalgic story of forgiveness will engage readers everywhere.
From the Jacket
Can a gift from the past mend a broken heart?
Ian Collins is an old man without his son. Patrick Collins is a young boy without his father. On his Christmas list are only three items. He wants the army to find his father. He wants to leave his grandfather''s house. And he wants the dusty wooden soldier in Grandfather''s attic--the one he is forbidden to touch.
Set in December of 1943, The Unfinished Gift is the engaging story of a family in need of forgiveness. With simple grace, it reminds us of the small things that affect powerful change in our hearts--a young boy''s prayers, a shoe box of love letters, and even a half-carved soldier, long forgotten. This nostalgic story of reconciliation will touch your heart.
"One for the keeper shelf! Dan''s book is a fabulous story of redemption and forgiveness. I couldn''t put it down, and it made me cry, which is hard to do."--Colleen Coble, author of the Rock Harbor and the Lonestar series
