This was a simply sweet and heartwarming book to read. I enjoyed this short story about celebrating Christmas and helping out those in need. The book begins with Sadie remembering when she was ten and a woman named Mary who took her and her sister in after their mother passed away. Sadie is hurt at the passing of her husband and as she reflects on the years she had with him she thinks about what Mary had done for her and her sister and when they were taken in at Christmas time. The story flew by. The ending portrays the heartwarming feelings of what comes around comes back around. I enjoyed this quick read and can’t wait to read another by Ms. Acorn.

Okay, I admit I am book junkie and a sentimental fool for Christmas, animals and children. I am sometimes a bit hard in my reviews, I did not start out that way, but some of the stuff on B&N is really bad, after awhile I just started calling them, the way I read them. This was a rather short book. I read it in an hour. It was extremely well edited. I laughed and cried and immediately reread it. I loved everything about this Christmas Story. It was perfect. If I had to register a complaint it would be it was not long enough. This would be a fantastic Hallmark Christmas movie. If you are not in a Christmas mood, this book will be the unexpected gift, which will make dream of sugar plums and angels. Perfect for readers of any age or sex. Hankies recommended. AD

I LOVE Christmas stories, and this is one of the best that I've ever had the pleasure of reading. With a fast pace and rich imagery, the author weaves a vivid and touching tale of how Christmas brings together two little orphaned girls and a wealthy and sophisticated yet lonely woman, and changes their lives forever. Fresh, warm and lovely, this is a story that I will enjoy reading again and again.
