Because of Love by Shauna Brown
For Christmas, all Phoebe Brown wants is to give her daughters new shoes to replace their heavy leather boots. But because they have very little money, her husband refuses to pay for them.

My review: Because of Love by Shauna Brown
This is a short Christmas story. It has everything to make you feel for the characters and for Christmas. It starts out with a little girl in tears because the other children are picking on her. The mother Phoebe Brown feels for her daughters. She wants to make things different for them. She works, sacrifice and prays for the changes she wants.
Phoebe gives a good example for almost any change we want in our lives. Her family also tries to work hard for what they want.
Byron because of something in his past wants better for his wife and daughters. So he buys the most sturdy ugly boots he can to protect them the best he can. He is a stubborn caring father.
This book is filled with love. Except for teasing kids. This family has so much love for each other it shines. It leaves you feeling good. It is nice to read a book that is clean and positive.
I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort so I could give a honest review of it in return and be part of its blog tour.
