This makes a great Christmas gift!
31 August 2006 | by AHillsmithSee all my reviews

Finally, this is a family story that all ages can enjoy. The characters are easy to identify with and the costuming and setting seem authentic for that era.

The story leaves you with a warm feeling and a desire to help others who are having a difficult time.

The story is very believable because of the events that occurred during the early 40's. In the depression Christmas gifts were very scarce and hard to come by.

I gave five copies as Christmas gifts last year and the recipients all seemed to enjoy the story.
