This book is a truly inspiring collection of poems, quotes and thoughts with beautifully produced illustrations. I have not been so delighted in a book for a long time. It is designed as an Advent meditation but it would be a lovely book at any time of year, although about the story leading up to Christmas,. It is that rare book where words and pictures merge into one whole. I think I have now bought 7 copies, and I think I have never done that before. A christmas present delight!
