Publisher's Summary

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program gives individuals, groups, and corporations an opportunity to adopt less fortunate children and seniors, and provide personalized gifts and necessities to those who would otherwise receive very little or nothing during the holiday season.
When his mom decided it was time for them to leave for good, Thomas knew they better get far away or he'd come and find them. It was Christmas Day, with Mom sweating in a tiny room over a tiny stove, and Dad watching college basketball and drinking with a vengeance. "Thomas, I want you to get your sister and go out to the car, okay?" Mom had promised them that they would be getting a special Christmas present today. Just the two kids. They couldn’t mention it to Dad. This is her present, Thomas thought as he waited and worried that the next one out of the house would be the man with the glassy eyes and the tightened jaw. The car left without hesitation. Thomas and Sara had received the best gift ever: freedom. The question was whether it would still be there tomorrow and the next day and the day after that.

"Jimmy Wayne has taken the pathos, poignancy, heart, and storytelling abilities that infuse his music and translated them into a novel that will inspire all those who read it to take the first step toward making a difference." (Jennifer Perry, Executive Director, Children's Action Network)

Giving and FORGIVING . . . Great Christmas Story

Both simple and complex, Paper Angels is a story for all of us. I love Christmas books, and this one is right up there with the best. It isn't sappy or fake. It's full of humility, love, self examination, and forgiveness. As the grown child of an alcoholic father, I could relate in so many ways to Thomas and his sister. And having come full circle, with grandkids of my own, I have lived to see God's faithfulness, and His blessings to our family, despite many hardships. This is a wonderful book to listen to as a family.
