    Reviewed for THC Reviews"4.5 stars" The Christmas Light is another heartwarming, holiday read from Donna VanLiere in her Christmas Hope series. Once again, we get to visit with some of the residents of the little town of Grandon, where everyone pulls together to help their neighbors and where the residents know how to spread the spirit of Christmas. While most of the previous books in the series followed perhaps two or three major characters with the other townspeople in supporting roles, this b [...]

    I firmly believe that you shouldn’t go through a Christmas season without reading something from Donna Van Liere. Her books are short and sweet, with a light romance. They’re clean, and always bring people together in unexpected ways. Small little connections turn into big ones, and heartstrings are always pulled. I’ve yet to make it through one of her books without tears. I’ve read (and enjoyed) almost everything Van Liere has written. My momma has, too, and she’s not even a big reade [...]

    I got this book free from Firstreads. This is my honest review.This beautiful little Christmas book is the story of different people in a small town, each with their own struggles. The beginning of every chapter has a thoughtful quote that adds to the story. One of my favorites was "Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light." ( Madeleine L'Engle). The widowed mother, the divorced father, the grieving child, the pregnant teen, and the childless couple are all brought [...]

    I love Donna Van Liere's Christmas books. I never miss them. This one was good, but seemed to be missing something. It was not as good as the rest of her Christmas books. It just didn't seem to have the emotional punch of the others. It's not her best work, but still good.If you want to read her absolute best work, read The Good Dream. Absolutely amazing and heart wrenching.

    Last year I read A Christmas Carol during the holiday season. It was a great way to slow down to reflect on the "reason for the season" and not "all that must be done". The Christmas Light is the story of a charming little town and some of its residents. It is a comforting story of love and hope in the midst of tragedy or unexpected occurances. The Christmas Light is a reminder to trust others but also to maintain a strong faith. I found the story and the writing very peaceful. This was the firs [...]

    Another amazing book! I love reading books with a Christmas theme during this wonderful time of year and this is another great book filled with the message of Christmas.

    SUMMARY: In the small town of Grandon, five very different people discover the true meaning of Christmas. Jennifer and Ryan are both single parents, struggling with their own losses and heartache as they attempt to move forward in the present while still holding onto the memories, joy, and heartache of the past. Sixteen-year-old Kaylee is faced with a life-changing situation that has affected her whole family. Stephen and Lily are happily married and ready to start a family. All of them are faci [...]

    I received this book from Netgalley in return for my honest review. Thank you to Netgalley, to St. Martin's Press, and to Donna VanLiere for this opportunity. This is an absolutely lovely Christmas story. Donna VanLiere is one of my favorite authors when it comes to heartfelt Christmas novels. I jumped at the chance to read this one. Each of the main characters is suffering in their own personal way and they come together to discover the joy and hope in Christmas. The characters from the Christm [...]

    The Christmas Light is the first book that I have read by author Donna VanLiere. What a really pleasant read. This is part of a series, however, it can be read as a stand alone. There are several stories going on:Jennifer and Avery are trying to move on with the death of Michael, husband and father. Ryan and Sofia are father and daughter trying to move on with the divorce of Ryan and his wife. Kaylee is a pregnant 16-year-old who is trying to figure out what is best for her and the baby. There a [...]

    Another heartwarming holiday story that will tug at your heartstrings and bring out many different emotions that will either put you in the holiday spirit or keep Christmas in your heart. As of right now, this is the last book in the Christmas Hope series. I've enjoyed all of them. I was glad that Gloria and Miriam were back. Their unlikely friendship brought some comic relief to the usual sadness that is part of this series. Although there are characters in each story who are experiencing hard [...]

    Every year I listen to one of Donna VanLiere's Christmas stories in the car on my way to and from work. I really enjoy listening to these light, hopeful stories and it helps me get into the Christmas spirit. This was a sweet story about a young girl who is struggling with her father's death, a single mom hoping for her daughter's healing, a comical nativity production at the local church, a single dad starting a new chapter in his life, and a teenager who is growing up too fast. The author weave [...]

    Another great book by Donna Van Liere. I laughed and cried during the story. It was such a touching book, once I started it there was no putting it down until it was finished.Jen is trying to deal with her husbands death and help her daughter get over her Dads death. She has several different storylines going on in the book but she ties them up so well with each other. If I tell to much it will give away the story which I don't want to do.

    Wonderful emotional read set at Christmas with sad tales that Christmas helps to heal. Nice closure at the end with lots of room for the story to continue - maybe next year! Recreating the Nativity scene at the church with the mixture of characters was heartwarming. Loved that we were reunited with Gloria and Miriam. Helping to set the mood as we rush ahead towards the Christmas season!

    This was so good. I'm starting to feel sad that I'm nearing the end of the series. This book features several families who are dealing with heartache of one kind or another. The church Christmas pageant brings everyone together to form a very wonderful Christmas story.

    Donna VanLiere writes the best and most wonderful books ever. I loved this novel and recommend it to everyone to read. It is a heartwarming story. This would be a great holiday gift for everyone.I won this book through the Giveaway and am happy that I did. Thank you.

    I really liked this book! Not something I'd normally read but it was good. Like reading a corny Hallmark Christmas movie.

    So, a relative who knows I love both Xmas and books (and who frowns upon my using of the spelling "Xmas" instead of Christmas, given my enjoyment for the more secular side of Xmas rather than the religious meaning, me being an atheist) gave me this book last year and I only got to reading it now. You know, late November read to get into the whole Xmas spirit. Anyway, while I can see how many people will find this book comforting and heartwarming it's not my thing. Not only through being dead ins [...]

    Despite me going into this one a bit apprehensive since I make fun of Hallmark movies, I ended up loving this novel/novellad figuring out the plot twists midway through. SPOILERS AHEAD RED LIGHT STOP. Ok you were warned. Figured she would give the baby up for adoption bu the scene in the diner/restaurant sealed the deal for me. Still perfect though no mocking. Now the two single parents and their kidsat was a bit too cheesy for my liking but the minute the VV gave Sophia the angel and he was lik [...]

    Elegí esta historia porque era un cuento corto navideño. Luego me di cuenta que son varios libros que van relacionándose entre sí, con los mismos personajes y sus diferentes historias cruzadas. Casualmente leí hace unos días otra de estas historias, que resultó buena. Sin embargo, este libro me pareció aburrido, con demasiados personajes. Toda la parte en la que preparan la Natividad y el show de la Iglesia fue aburridísima. Las historias cierran todas demasiado fácil y bien, totalment [...]

    This one was my least favorite so far of the series. Again I had issues with the POVs switching without warning us. I was extremely excited to meet new characters especially triplets, however, it annoyed me as she kept calling them triplet one, two and three! I have triplets and they have names and should be treated as individuals even if they do look alike. I did cry during one part.Some of the story was a bit far fetched and old characters did show up again. Was hoping she’d give us more fro [...]

    A GLORIOUS ENDING TO A CURIOUS BEGINNINGEvery year I read several Christmas stories I have collected over three decades and this story is at or near the top of my favorites because there was a miracle at the end. The miracle of Jesus ' birth is the most important, influential, and WONDERFUL miracle of all that will fill hearts throughout eternity even though darkness filters though our lives occasionally. His light is always there to show us the best path to take.

    Book seven in the Christmas Hope series. By the author of The Christmas Shoes. Various people are struggling with every day life issues. A church Christmas performance brings them all together. The light does break forth and shine. New characters are introduced along with a few favorites from the previous books. This is such a great series to read during the month of December!

    Sometimes there are just no words. Yet another demonstration how everything is possible with God. Lots of amazing miracles in this story, some predicted and some not. I think I’ve finally finished the series, although out of order. Very well done!
