CJane Elliott's Pattern for an Angel is a beautiful Christmas story.

Gabe's raising his adopted son, Ian, who prefers to wear dresses, and wants to wear an angel dress in the pageant. Enter Loren who not only understands Ian, but also can help encourage him.

Each character is completely loveable, and unique. They are pure delight.

This is a short and super sweet story packed with a whole lot of meaning. Despite being just 67 pages, it's full of love, support, and charm. I love this book and can't

Loving and leading by example

This is such a loving story. Two lonely souls find each other while showing the sweetest little child that it's ok to dress and feel however you choose. That there is no wrong way and that love is truly amazing and healing.
