Mary’s Son, A Tale of Christmas by Darryl Nyznyk was selected as a Moms Choice Award and is destined to become a Christmas classic. It’s the story of two young people with life challenges and bitterness. The children are visited by a mysterious old man who happens to look a little bit like Santa. As Nicholas weaves himself into the lives of these special children, the children find themselves on a magical journey into the real meaning of Christmas. Winner of Mom’s Choice Gold Award for the most inspirational/motivational book for young adults and juveniles (ages 9-12) and in fiction for the adult category, this keepsake book has much to offer.
The book Mary’s Son, A Tale of Christmas touches the subject of rebellion, bitterness, fear, anger and resentment. The key characters include a spoiled rich girl and an underprivileged boy. Both children are abandoned by key adults in their lives and both respond to their hurting hearts in different yet similar ways. The story brings awareness to the differences in rich vs poor, the challenges of the current economy, the attitudes of the heart and neglectful parenting. When Nicholas joins them he introduces them to an experience that is healing for all. He reminds them the true meaning of Christmas and takes their focus off themselves and their problems.
I enjoyed reading Mary’s Son, A Tale of Christmas and will look forward to reading it each year during the Christmas season. It would make a good addition to a family library.
