Timid Patty is a small girl who has been adopted into a new family. Her story (entitled "The Quiet Little Woman") is the first one in this book.
Instead of considering Patty as a daughter, the new family treats her like a servant, always making her do the extra work around the house. Patty only has one small glimmer of love around her--and it's 20 miles away. Can the Christmas spirit bring love & joy closer to home?
You'll also cherish the second tale in this book "Tilly's Christmas", which tells a story about the most important gifts you can give.
The third story is "Rosa's Tale"... where a special Christmas surprise befalls a young girl named Belinda, and a lovely bay mare.
These 3 stories make a great read for anyone who enjoys the classics, and the book would be especially splendid to have on a cold Winter day.

A must have for your read aloud library
This book is truly a treasure. It speaks of thinking more of others and less of self. It holds values high, as a way of life, rather than a subject to merely talk about. Young and old will find this collection of stories a source of encouragement as well as challenging to be more like the characters in the stories.Was this review helpful?
