Book Review - UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS HERO by Kathi Macias
I think this novel has to be the most soul-grabbing one I have read this year--even among Kathi's others, of which there are a bu-unch of dynamic, breath-holding books.
Josie finds herself homeless after her husband dies, leaving her too deep in debt to hang onto anything but her pride. He hadn't told her he'd lost his job, taken them to the edge of bankruptcy, and wouldn't even tell her he was sick--until it was too late even to save his life.
On the street with two children, she goes from one shelter to the next or sleeps behind the cleaners. She wonders if she'll ever feel safe again, if her children will be able to go to school, or what she can do to get out of these unbelievable circumstances.
And then Rick shows up. He wins her children's confidence and affection, but Josie worries about everyone they meet on the street. And she has her pride. She doesn't want to be beholden to anyone, or cause anyone any trouble.
Admirable traits--but not even God can break through that much armor. Or can He?
