Beautifully descriptive prose brings on the nostalgia. Set in the mid-1900's this is the story of a little boy's last Christmas living in the countryside. His father has just lost his blue-collar job and the family's future becomes an unknown. Though living on the edge of poverty, the author remembers his childhood as being in a kind of Eden of running free and playing hard. Meanderings of life in simpler times, may bring up memories you never had.
