In a world where so much devastation exists, it is difficult to find a story that will touch your heart the way this story will. Isabel's Gift is a tale of a young and curious girl who discovers that value of human life and the importance of Christ in Irma Silva-Barbeau's latest novel, Isabel's Gift: A Story of Giving, Love and Discovery. This novel will not only touch your heart, it will change your perspective on life. Written from the culture that Silva-Barbeau grew up, you will learn much about the Catholic faith and the island town off the coast of West Africa where Silva-Barbeau grew up. Isabel's Gift takes a heartrending look at the world we live in from the eyes of a child. Join Isabel as she discovers what God has in store for her and her future. This story begins before Christmas as Isabel begs Santa for a brand new pair of shoes and ends up asking for a far more valuable gift from God.
