The Christmas Hummingbird by Davis Bunn

Love & Care

The Christmas Hummingbird by Davis Bunn is the most delightful tale set in the run up to Christmas. It is the seventh book in the Miramar Bay series but can be read as a stand-alone.

The area around Miramar Bay is a hotbed of forest fires. The fire service and police are on high alert as the dry weather sparks new fires daily. Unfortunately, there are those who take advantage of the fires to steal and loot from the householders who are evacuated. The police and fire departments work together to solve the crimes.

There are animals to rescue too, including the smallest hummingbirds. A young boy, just eleven years old, talented but mostly silent, comes out of his shell to save the hummingbirds. He forms a bond with one in particular.

We learn that the young boy is extremely talented. He has a vivid artistic talent, being able to draw from his imagination, as well as what he can see.

Since the young boy’s father left years ago, he has had no male role models. It is beautiful to witness a relationship develop between the boy and a volunteer firefighter.

Trust has been in short supply due to past relationship break downs. We witness characters learning to trust again.

All the characters were wonderfully drawn and realistic.

The Christmas Hummingbird is a charming novel, showing the love and care needed for all creation. We are all precious in God’s eyes.
