The Silent Gift



The Silent Gift by Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley

Information taken from the Bethany House website


From the creator/director of the Love Comes Softly film series--
a story both bittersweet and heartwarming of a mother and her son•and of his unusual gift

The decade of the 'thirties was a time of enormous uncertainty--for the world, for America, and in particular for one lonely, struggling mother and her disabled son. Their story is one of unyielding love and incredible sacrifices in the face of circumstances beyond belief.
But then The Gift appears•where has it come from, and why? How can a young boy who cannot communicate provide comfort and direction to seekers who learn of the special ability? Whatever the source, its presence brings a single shaft of light and hope to Mary and her beloved son, Jack•. Will it be enough?
A novel filled with passion, with yearning•and with hope

Michael Landon, Jr., son of the Little House on the Prairie star, has been building his own reputation in the film world and beyond with his highly successful Love Comes Softly movies. His Christian worldview illuminates all his work, including this, his first novel. He and his wife make a home for their three children in Austin, TX.


MY REVIEW


The Silent Gift is a beautiful story. I loved the characters and the plot kept me interested the whole way through. I think the author did an excellent job portraying a mother's heart for her child.  The story is not a particularly happy one but it does have a happy ending. The Silent Gift does a good job showing the best, and worst, in people. I would recommend this book to Christian fiction lovers.
