All About Books Days Book Review & Giveaway: Every Time a Bell Rings by Carmel Harrington

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

When Belle, a foster child, is being placed with Tess she's finally found a good home. Soon another child, Jim, joins them. Jim and Belle are best friends. They're so close and they love each other very much. When Jim's mother is able to take care of her son again they lose touch. After many years Jim comes back to Dublin to find Belle. They immediately reconnect and their love is deeper than ever.

Jim and Belle want to be foster parents themselves. Their door is always open for children who need them. When Belle has to say goodbye to a child she really loves she's going through a tough time. It's almost Christmas, but she isn't in the mood to celebrate. When she wishes she'd never been born something happens to her, something that will change her entire outlook on life...

Every Time a Bell Rings is beautiful in so many ways. Tess, Jim and Belle are wonderful people and they have such good hearts. I truly admire every loving and caring foster parent. I think it's fantastic that Carmel Harrington has chosen this as a topic for her book. It's definitely a topic that deserves some extra attention.

 I love romantic stories, especially when true love is involved. This Christmas story is so special. I didn't want it to end and loved every word. Every Time a Bell Rings has a gorgeous cover. Both the outside and the inside of the book are filled with love and joy. It's exactly what a good Christmas book should be like. It has the right spirit and I really enjoyed the story. I was singing Christmas songs and I'm already in a Christmas mood just because of this book. I think Carmel Harrington is a great writer and I love her work.

  41. This sounds like a nice story. Definitely a topic that you don't see often and as I ([and my brothers & a friend of mine]) am a former foster youth, I feel thankful for the representation, especially on behalf of those who had to stay far longer in the system than I did.
    I also really love the cover & the necklace looks so lovely!
