The Hope of Christmas Past by Stephenia H. McGee

48119220. sy475


On the brink of aging out the foster system, the last thing Isla Laird wants is to spend Christmas in an old-fashioned plantation. What’s the point of bonding with her foster mom when it’s too late to ever be adopted? But when a mysterious painting suddenly thrusts her into the nineteenth century, Isla is forced to face hurts and memories she’s long tried to bury. With time running out and her heart in tatters, can God use an impossible miracle to bring Isla hope for a new future?


I love this author's books and I try never to miss one!!
I loved this story so much!!
Stephenia is a very talented writer and her style of writing is wonderful. I love it because of the ability
to draw you into the book from the opening page! Almost reminds me of a Mary Poppins type of story. I won't say why because it will give away the story and I don't want to do that!!
The characters in this story are wonderful and exciting! They're also easy to make friends with well all except one. Isla was a little harder to get to know than Ella and the others.
Isla has one big chip on her shoulder but as you read along you'll see why. I did love to watch her become someone I knew she could be. In fact there are some things that I really admired about her.
I love adventure and this one is no different!!
I've never visited any old homes so this book has enabled me to do that. But still, it's not the same as if I were actually seeing it for myself and getting the feel of who might've lived there etc.
I want to strongly recommend this book because it is so good and it will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting to see what happens next!
I received a complementary copy of this book with NO compensations received. All opinions are my own.
