Alissa Dunn has written this book in such away that adults, and children alike will find meaning in this book. It is evident of the deep faith that this author has by the way that she take Biblical truths and turns them into stories of inspiration, encouragement and faith.

The Unclaimed Christmas Gift reminds us that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus—nothing else. Regardless of the way that you celebrate this special season, this book will help you to focus on the real reason for the season. Alissa Dunn, tell us in her book “regardless of how rich or how poor; which race or social status; which country you are from or which language you speak, Jesus is a gift to all of us. He understands you no matter what you have been through or who you have become. He understands sadness and suffering more than we realize.” Many of us live our fast paced lives with bitterness, frustration, and hatred as our motivating factors and we never accept The Unclaimed Christmas Gift of love and peace. The book will definitely be a cherished possession to your personal library and one that you will want to read over and over, time and time again. Kudos to the author, Alissa Dunn for writing such an inspirational, Biblically based book centered on the birth of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend The Unclaimed Christmas Gift to anyone who desires to find peace, unconditional acceptance and love in their lives.--Tom Ward, Tulsa, Oklahoma
