Ian Collins is an old man without his son. Patrick Collins is a young boy without his father. On his Christmas list are only three items. He wants the army to find his father. He wants to leave his grandfather's house. And he wants the dusty wooden soldier in Grandfather's attic--the one he is forbidden to touch.
Set at Christmastime in 1943, The Unfinished Gift is the engaging story of a family in need of forgiveness. With simple grace, it reminds us of the small things that affect powerful change in our hearts--a young boy's prayers, a shoe box of love letters, and even a half-carved soldier, long forgotten. This nostalgic story of reconciliation will touch your heart.
- Great book, keeps you wanting to listen chapter. Highly recommend!
I was looking for a good book to listen to that Roger Mueller narrated I looked this 4.5 star book up on Amazon and bought it. Very glad I did. Seven year old Patrick Collins loses his mom and his dad is away as a pilot in WWII. He is put with his bitter angry grandfather eho he dies the know. Various characters enter to help him through a tough time. It’s very heart warming, light book.
Great book and looking forward to the next book, The Homecoming, after this one. Dan Walsh keeps the interest high so it’s hard to put down.
I always love hearing a book Roger Mueller narrated, as he makes the books so interesting. He is amazing with different voices for each character! (The Shack, Crossroads, Bo’s Cafe—Excellent books and fantastic narration!) Highly recommend Dan Walshes 2 books.
