Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

It's December 1932, and the Worthams are doing their best to help the ten Hammond children, whose mother died a year ago. When their father, George, disappears, Mrs. Wortham decides to lift the children's spirits by carrying on with holiday decorations and festivities. This heartwarming tale will touch readers' hearts and put them in the Christmas mood. It communicates the true meaning of the season and evokes the strength and power of family love, not to mention of the enduring human spirit. Kelly's (Julia's Hope; Emma's Gift) latest historical novel has the earnest charm of an episode of The Waltons. Recommended for holiday collections. Kelly lives in Illinois.
