Book Review--A CHRISTMAS PRAYER by Linda Wood Rondeau



Is was a truly a pleasure to read this book for review. Linda Wood Rondeau chose to write about an autistic boy, a subject near and dear to my heart. There are so many different levels and types of autism, and the incidences of autistic children seem to be increasing exponentially. If you read this novella, you might be one step closer to understanding the people who have to live with it.

Reporter Alexis Jennings is Gib's sister and caregiver since their parents died. The autistic boy has a hero worship going for movie star and singer Ethan Jacobs. She promises Gib a chance to meet his hero if he will stop "borrowing" things from the stores and lighting fires.

The fact is, Ethan Jacobs wants to meet and get to know Gib and his sister. He requests Alexis to be the reporter who interviews him. He is sworn to secrecy, and he can't tell Alexis why he takes every opportunity to be around them.

She's no dummy. She begins to realize something is odd about this developing relationship.

In order to find out exactly what happens next, you might want to go to Amazon and buy yourself a copy.
