Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Christmas in My Heart franchise has been going strong for a full decade now; this tenth-anniversary edition follows the usual formula of fostering Christmas spirit through old-time stories and woodcut illustrations. Some of the better tales in this collection adhere to an anniversary-appropriate theme of remembrance Pearl S. Buck undoubtedly takes top honors here, offering a mature and reflective story about a widow who uses her Christmas alone to remember the joys and sorrows of her marriage. Fans of less subtle, more tear-inducing Christmas yarns will dig out the Kleenex for Frank McMillan's "Terry" and Seth Parker's "No Man Need Walk Alone," while romantics will enjoy boy-meets-girl-on-Christmas-Eve stories from Margaret Sangster and Grace Livingston Hill. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
Joe Wheeler returns with Christmas in My Heart: A Treasury of Timeless Christmas Stories, the 12th installment of his annual collection. Kathleen Norris (no, not that Kathleen Norris-the one writing a century ago) contributes a sentimental yarn about a family rift that is healed on Christmas Eve, and Wheeler offers two of his own sketches. In all, there are 16 stories-some historical, some contemporary, and all guaranteed to require a handkerchief. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
