WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY"  
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S  
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
*******************************************
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE CHRISTMAS LIGHT
BY DONNA VANLIERE

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
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 facing their own struggles, and all are finding their way through the dark. When they are brought together for a rather unconventional church Nativity, they will learn that with strength, courage, and love, there is always hope. The New York Times bestselling author of the beloved The Christmas Hope series returns with this new heartwarming, inspirational story about the power of love and faith to reveal the possibilities that lay right in front of you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Donna VanLiere is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. Her much-loved Christmas Hope series includes The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing, both of which were adapted into movies for CBS Television, The Christmas Secret, The Christmas Journey and The Christmas Hope, which was adapted into a film by Lifetime. She is also the author of The Angels of Morgan Hill and Finding Grace. VanLiere is the recipient of a Retailer's Choice Award for Fiction, a Dove Award, a Silver Angel Award, an Audie Award for best inspirational fiction, and a nominee for a Gold Medallion Book of the Year.

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
THE CHRISTMAS LIGHT by Donna VanLiere once again shows why readers are always excited to see a holiday book by this author. 

Following in the footsteps of VanLiere's much loved series, The Christmas Hope, THE CHRISTMAS LIGHT is set in a small town and revolves around five people, each dealing with their own personal problems. VanLiere's characters are always realistically portrayed and bring readers into their lives by learning of their struggles. While attempting to deal with their problems in their own ways, they all come together over a somewhat untraditional Christmas Nativity Pageant. There they find hope and love can be attained when they stay strong and brave. Their interaction leads to some poignant as well as humorous moments, especially with a couple of characters. 

Although The Christmas Light is fairly predictable, it is a nice change for me to read a light and inspirational story. I always love to read holiday books around Christmas and Donna VanLiere never disappoints.
