    Donna and Mark Du Boise have a seemingly wonderful life as profe

    Donna and Mark Du Boise have a seemingly wonderful life as professional gospel singers. After their last performance of the year, Donna sits in her dressing room crying in despair. She remembers how they met and how happy they had once been, but now ten year later she wasn’t so sure. She wonders if Mark would be better off married to someone who could give him a child. That ended for her when she lost their first and only baby.

    Donna wakes up a few mornings after they’re home to a note from Mark that he’s gone on a two week fishing trip. Feeling abandoned and pouring out her problems to her friend Ellie, Donna finds herself agreeing to go on a missionary trip to the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky.

    Upon arrival at her host home, Donna meets Sara Cagle. The woman, her two sons and adopted daughters, Jessie and Lexie, live in extreme poverty and have very little to eat. Sara’s husband died from black lung disease and her two sons must work in the coal mine to help support the family.

    Donna works helping with the assigned tasks of the mission group. She is so overcome with her own sadness, she finds herself in a church talking to the minister and that’s when she realizes her real missionary assignment is to help with Sara’s family.

    Sara falls ill and is taken to the hospital. Donna fixes up the old shack Sara and the children live in and loads it with food. Donna wants to have a real Christmas for Sara’s children.

    Sara takes a turn for the worse. What will happen to her four children and will Mark understand why Donna has used so much of their savings to help this family?

    Kimberly B. Jackson touches your heart with the story of a family full of love despite their circumstances. Her characters learn to reach out beyond themselves and let God’s grace surround them.

    "The Christmas Answer" is so heart-warming, perfect for the Christmas season. Check your pulse if this doesn't make you dab away a few happy tears. No steamy sex, no violence, no foul language--just a beautiful story that captured my imagination and tugged at my heart. Thank you, Kim Jackson. Now, go and write me another story!
