I have read to of Richard Preston's books, one on the big trees, and one on the excitement of scientific discovery. I thought both of those were both very well written and researched as well as exciting. When I saw he had written a Christmas story I got this book, Boat of Dreams. As his other books, this one is excelent. It has a well constructed original plot, likeable fully developed characters, and the conclusion of the story is not easily guessed at, but still very memorable and positive.The story is suitable for any age from early reading through adult .

This book is amazing. I'm 63, been there and done that, as cynical as they come, but this book filled me with that old time Christmas spirit and wonder that I'd hoped I hadn't lost and now I know I haven't. If this doesn't get made into a movie, millions of people will be missing out on a wonderful story. Read it now.
