Prayers of a Stranger

About the Book:

While visiting the Holy Land, Amanda answers the prayers of a stranger . . . and begins an amazing Christmas journey.

Amanda Vance is ambivalent about her husband’s idea for a big family holiday up north. Last year she planned a special Christmas in their own home, carefully preparing a nursery and the keepsake ornaments for their newborn. Now that room stands as empty as her heart.

Then a neighbor’s mishap turns into a last-minute chance for Amanda to take a much-needed vacation to tour the Holy Land.

An extraordinary turn of events allows Amanda to help answer a young mother’s plea for healing. Then, filled with a sense of awe, Amanda visits the place of Jesus’ birth. There she discovers anew the miracle of the Christ child—God incarnate as a tiny, vulnerable baby.

Her return to Florida marks a momentous shift in her soul and in her marriage as she begins to realize that her journey didn’t end in the Holy Land. And that God doesn’t just answer prayers of strangers . . . but also those of her own heart.

My Thoughts:

Are you asking why in the world is she just now posting a Christmas story?? Well, here's the thing! Yes, this is a "Christmas Journey" however, this "Journey" will touch the reader no matter the season. Isn't that what a book should do!?

Prayers of a Stranger is a beautiful book that will touch your heart in countless ways. So many times, when we go through a devastating loss, we get stuck in the "WHY GOD?" but it is when we get on the other side of that pain and we open our hearts and allow God to do what HE has been longing to do....bring healing and restoration. As Chris and Amanda walk through their grief, God begins opening doors and step by step the healing comes.

Prayers of a Stranger is such a wonderful example of how God works all things to HIS glory!

Thank you Thomas Nelson Publishers and the BookSneeze Program for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest review

Happy Reading!
