The Christmas sweater is a very different read and I am not sure the title does it justice. Its not the warmest fuzzy Christmas story I have read, however it is a very heart felt story with a very powerful meaning. Be happy with what you have in life it can so easily be taken away in a moments notice. The story about a boy who gets a hand made sweater from his mother for Christmas and is not so pleased with her choice of gifts, but it was all his struggling mother could afford. he learns later that choices made can make an everlasting effect in your life. He befriends a neighbor no one else seems to know, and as everything in his life seems to close in around him he has to put his total trust in God for the outcome. If your looking for a gripping story that will bring you back to the true meaning of family and how a tragic event can lead to amazing grace from God this is a good book for you.
