bestselling author and renowned radio and television host Glenn Beck
delivers an instant holiday classic about boyhood memories, wrenching
life lessons, and the true meaning of the gifts we give to one another
We weren't wealthy, we weren't poor — we just were. We never wanted for anything, except maybe more time together....
When Eddie was twelve years old,
all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten
harder — and money tighter — since his father died and the family bakery
closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside their modest Christmas tree that magical morning.
What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.
Scarred deeply by the realization
that kids don't always get what they want, and too young to understand
that he already owned life's most valuable treasures, that Christmas
morning was the beginning of Eddie's dark and painful journey on the
road to manhood. It will take wrestling with himself, his faith, and his
family — and the guidance of a mysterious neighbor named Russell — to
help Eddie find his path through the storm clouds of life and finally
see the real significance of that simple gift his mother had crafted by
hand with love in her heart.
Based on a deeply personal true story, The Christmas Sweater
is a warm and poignant tale of family, faith and forgiveness that
offers us a glimpse of our own lives — while also making us question if
we really know what's most important in them.
