Item description for The Christmas Angel (Cape Light #6) by Thomas Kinkade & Katherine Spencer...
Overview Book: Hardcover | 6.33 x 9.09in | 320 pages
The spirit of the season is spreading through the rustic seaside hamlet of Cape Light, as the residents prepare to celebrate the joy of the holidays. But town mayor Emily receives an unexpected and precious Christmas gift when she finds a baby girl tucked away in a decorative cradle set up outside the church, with a note begging whoever discovers the child to take care of her.
Aside from signs that the baby's birth mother was a drug abuser, no one has any idea to whom the child may belong. As the police investigate, Emily is granted temporary custody of baby Jane. Having given up her own daughter years ago, she missed out on the many wonderful experiences that come with motherhood. And though she tries to be reasonable and mature about the situation, something about little Jane makes her feel that she was meant to find the baby and raise her as her own.
But the changes an adoption would bring do not sit well with her husband, Dan, who has already struggled with the issues of raising children once in his life, and does not want that responsibility again. Now, in the midst of the year's most joyous season, Emily must come to terms with her duty to her family, her own feelings of regret and loss-and what her heart truly desires.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Christmas Angel?
Christmas Love Jan 11, 2007
The book is written a bit like the Mitford Series in that it is a small united community with all the ups and downs of life. There are personality clashes, misunderstandings, discouragement and all the other negatives in human relations. However, the journey to learning to love and accept others and ourselves is full of interesting thought provoking experiences.
Christmas in Cape Light Jan 4, 2007
Once again, visiting the fictional Cape Light for Christmas is almost like going home for Christmas! The familiar characters are like family, and the story is always interesting, uplifting, and believable. Kinkade and Spencer are truly a team of authors that bring fiction to life and build a fan-base of people, like me, who are looking for good, clean reads that have a posative Christian message.
He is the writer of hope as well as the painter of light Jun 24, 2006
I have read each book in this collection in a day I can never put them down..He writes with hope just like he paints the light in his pictures..I don't know how he does it but he captured my heart with this uplifting story ..we hear of so many disturbing stories and so much trash in books these days it was just awesome to read a book that made me feel good about the world and to give me hope .I love these books waiting for the next book.
And you thought his paintings were bad... Apr 4, 2006
Wow, unbelievable! This absolutely worthless painter who has swindled white-trash and others of no taste into buying his paintings is showing he is as bad an author as he is a painter. I read this because I thought the idea of Kincaid writing a book was hilarious and I wasn't disappointed. Listen folks, you who buy Kincaid paintings, just to let you know, the rest of the world that has a modicum of taste is laughing at you. Yes, just like people who think the mullet haircut looks good on them. If you want a good laugh or more likely contemplating suicide, this is the book for you. Like his paintings, this book is an absolute piece of garbage.

The Christmas Angel by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer I know it's not Christmas but a good story but a good story is a good story. We all know of Thomas Kinkade as a great painter of light, but have you read any of his stories? This is in the Cape Light series. This book tells more of Emily, a mayor, she's older and recently married. Emily had a daughter over 20 years ago that her mother talked her into giving up. She now has a good relationship with her daughter, but has missed all of the bringing her up. One morning Emily was jogging she spies something moving in the cradle set up outside the church, a little hand. The baby inside starts an adventure you don't want to miss.
