Nathan Andrews' loving mother is terminally ill, yet he and his cash-strapped family are trying to live life at its fullest. Wealthy Robert Layton is a workaholic attorney on the brink of losing the sweet family he unwittingly neglects. Robert is long overdue for a wake-up call, which arrives when he crosses paths with Nathan on Christmas Eve. Nathan has been collecting bottles and cans, so that he can purchase a pair of expensive red shoes for his mother. In observing Nathan's plight, Layton glimpses the true meaning of love and family, and his armor cracks. If he's not too late, he might be lucky enough to save his own family. The Christmas Shoes is a tale of our shared humanity and a universal story of how a power greater than us can shape, and even save, our lives. It was a blockbuster hit in all its forms -- song, book and film.

The first time I heard the song on the radio I became teary eyed. The movie brought the same emotions. I look forward to hearing the song and watching the movie each Christmas season. I have now completed the triology and read the book. The Christmas Shoes reminds me to look beyond first reactions, as you don't always know the story behind the person. The enjoyed book but I prefer the movie adaptation ... this doesn't happen often.

If you're looking for a tear jerker, any of her books will fit the bill.
