The Jingle Bell Bum

About the Book:
Author: Patricia Hanrion
Publisher: Cedar Fort

Release Date: October 2012
Genre: Christmas

Book Description:
Joseph was a shabby imitation of Santa Claus, with his Salvation Army kettle in front of a Kmart, but what no one could have guessed was that Joseph was a miracle waiting to happen. This inspiring Christmas story tells the true tale of a group of teenage carolers who changed the life of a down-and-out bum. A moving and unforgettable read!

My Review:
My heart needed this story today...for I too have been caught up in the marathon we call "getting ready for Christmas."

What a sweet story of a woman who puts aside her own list of "to-do things" to help her teenagers in their fund-raiser...
She is uplifted in their excitement and holiday carol singing.
But the one present she wasn't prepared for was in the form of the Salvation Army bell ringer.
Over the course of the next few days hearts are warmed, food is shared, thoughts are given and all are edified...and no one is alone.
This book is a must-read for the season!
