Don't judge a book before you read it

You should never give a bad review if you haven't read the book. There have been many books I have read that I was actually very surprised that I loved them after I gave them a chance. Not very nice to judge something if you haven't given it a chance yourself. Just for ...

    Pleasurable, easy read.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and provided a nice, personal perspective on the holiday season.

    A holiday story to make you smile

    I had read some of Donald Hall's poetry and when this became available on Nook's "Daily Find" I decided it would make a nice addition to my holiday books. The way you should read this book is with snow falling outside, a fire in the fireplace, and a mug of hot chocolate in your hand. But it's still enjoyable with no snow, fire or hot chocolate. A sweet story of a long-ago New England Christmas (1940) with loving grandparents and a 12-year-old boy. The ending was predictable, but that didn't lessen the enjoyment of the book at all. After reading the book, you must read the Author's Note. I won't say why.

    Slice of life christmas story

    This is a short novella about a young man’s/boy’s Christmas at his grandparent’s farm in 1940 it is literally just a slice of life, he talks about working on the farm and milking cows and talks with his grandfather it is a nice story but I guess I kept waiting for more to happen but nothing happens it is just a snippet of time that takes you back to a slower easier time. I liked the ending and could feel the snow and smell the farm, and I too wanted a ride in the sleigh.

    I enjoyed the postscript by the author of what this event in his life really was, make sure you read all the way to end the end to get the rest of the story.

    A charming nostalgic tale I would recommend for a read around Christmas.
    3 ½ stars


    I received this from netgalley & the publisher for a fair and honest review

    So enjoyed it that I will read it again, at some point!

    Though not from the same geographical area, I could "feel" the bitter cold, as the author and his grandparents struggled with that kind of life. But, even more so, I experienced the joys of their close family living. It is the kind of book I can read again, and enjoy it just as much!

    only 43 pages? For that price?

    Sure it sounds good but eleven dollars? Ouch. Expensive.
