Completing The Circle
Finding Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn is an absolutely charming contemporary read. I loved the way dialogue from other novels – such as Narnia, The Tempest and A Christmas Carol – was incorporated into the story. The whole tale was warm and welcoming and I felt the arms of the story reach out and cocoon me.
The novel has the theme of searching. Not just physically searching but spiritually searching, and this was a dual search – as Miranda was searching for something or someone, so God was searching for her. The reader is reminded that we are all created for relationship with the Father. God longs for each and every one of us to come to Him.
