    A plea: If, per chance, anyone considers ordering the book, it would be helpful to do it now. Amazon just notified me that they are going to return the inventory as this Christmas book has not sold any copies since last Christmas. Go figure.

But this book is more than just a retelling of historical happenings, rather it is a cry for peace and love, a prayer for God's will to be done "on earth as in heaven". It is a much needed reminder..."

    Quotes from the other two reviews:

    Catholic Media Review: Christmas Reading; "Oh Holy Night: The Peace of 1914"

    "...a truly moving account of the Christmas Eve in 1914 "

    "I recommend this book to anyone and not just at Christmas time. The story of the Christmas Eve truce of 1914 is timeless as is the message underlying the events."
