About this item
About the BookWhen Alexander helps an old man instead of going to see the annual lighting of the Christmas torch, he does not realize the reward his kindness will bring.
Book SynopsisFrom the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box and The Mistletoe Promise comes a picture book about a boy who learns a lesson about the true meaning of Christmas and what it means to give a gift. High in the mountains lies the town of Noel, surrounded by beautiful white walls and a great silver gate. Every year Alexander and his mother walk the long distance to Noel to watch the lighting of the village Christmas tree. This year Alexander learns that the Keeper of the Flame will choose the person who has given the truest gift of Christmas to light the Flame. On his way to Noel, Alexander helps a poor old man he finds lying in the snow. His act of charity and compassion is rewarded, and Alexander learns that it isn't what you have to give, but how you give of yourself that matters most. Master storyteller Richard Paul Evans shares a heartwarming tale of the true meaning of Christmas spirit.
