These heartwarming stories set during the holidays in the years between 1906 and today will rekindle the reader's own memories, giving perspective to the present and hope for the future. Each story is set amidst historical events when people came together and found opportunities to exchange the true gifts of Christmas: gifts of kindness, encouragement, forgiveness, peace, hope, belonging, and many more. The main character of each story is a boy or girl, man or woman whose heart opens to give or receive love, bringing personal transformation and causing them to always look back and say, 'That was the best Christmas!' Each story is penned with a gentle twinkle in the author's eye, giving the reader delightful twists of plot and humor, and revealing her warm understanding of human relationships--with each other and with the Creator who sent his Son that first Christmas Day.
