Aglow: A Christmas Fable by Bruce Ashkenas


From Amazon

Aglow is the story of twelve year old, Adam, a Jewish boy, who likes to visit his gramps in The Bronx. His best friend there is Rafe, a Catholic. The difference doesn't matter to the boys, even after they get involved in the biggest miracle to hit the Tri-State area in years. Over the course of a Thanksgiving weekend they help cause and then react to an event which uplifts the neighborhood and the city. Rafe has faith that what they did was right, Adam has faith in Rafe, and they both have faith in the best cleaning product ever made.

My thoughts

My thanks to the Author via TBConFB for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

I gave this seasonal themed read a 3.5 stars or 7/10. The story would be a great read for older children, but is also ideal as a short story read for Adults to read alone. It crosses many generations to be fair.

I enjoyed the story that centres around Adam, a young Jewish boy and his best friend Rafe, a young Catholic boy.

They set in motion something that turns into a miracle of sorts, that has far reaching repercussions that neither of them could have believed would happen in their neighbourhood.

Well written this is a lovely tale that was a joy to read.
