Two Tickets To The Christmas Ball

If you ask anyone for directions, you're bound to get some strange looks.

If you try to Google it on the internet, it doesn't exist.

If you drive there to try and find it, you'll be wasting your gas.

On Sage Street, lies a part of town that few often see and even fewer know exist. Most carry on with their day to day lives and barely look up to see this part of town. Lined with an old candy shoppe, a toy store, a hotel, a costume shop, and a unique book store called Warner, Werner and Wizbotterdad's, you find the most quaint and pleasant place to be.

When Cora Crowder attempts to find a book for her uncle to finish off her Christmas shopping early, she finds an unexpected surprise waiting for her at the book store.

Simon Derrick, is a man who lives with his family including his Down Syndrome sister, Sandy who loves books. What better surprise to get her than a book at this unique book store on Sage Street.

Only when they both arrive home and find a ticket tucked into their books for a Wizard Ball does the holiday magic begin to arrive thanks to some angels God has so graciously provided along the way.

In the magical Christmas story, Two Tickets To The Christmas Ball by Donita K. Paul, the reader is transported to an enchanted tale of God's divine intervention to help Cora and Simon find the real meaning of Christmas. I could not book this book down as I didn't want to leave the story, it felt real and full of hope as you came to know Cora and Simon. Each has a different history that when woven together creates a lasting masterpiece in God's eyes.

I received this book compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers for my honest review, and not only did I receive an early Christmas present in reading this heart-warming story but I discovered a 5 out 5 perfect stars and comes with my highest recommendation. This is a must have if you collect Christmas classics and treasures like I do. I am keeping this one as part of my permanent library and can see reading it through the month of December with my children.
