Reviewers have rejoiced in Michael Baron’s “emotionally charged relationships” (RT Book Reviews), “deep sensitivity” (#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs), and “talent and depth” (Romance Writers Reviews), while calling his work “a masterpiece” (Book Reviews R Us), “unforgettable” (Fresh Fiction), and “beautiful” (My Book Retreat). Now Baron presents us with his first novelette and his first holiday story, a touching, luminous, and openhearted tale of love, wonder, and revelation.Returning to the characters of his first novel, When You Went Away, Baron takes us again into the world of Gerry Rubato, a man who has been marked by loss and revived by love, and his son Reese, now five, who celebrates life at a remarkable level but is only now starting to understand that he was robbed of the chance of ever knowing his mother. Reese is old enough now to get caught up in the excitement of the Christmas season and he throws himself into it with abandon. His sense of celebration takes on entirely new levels of meaning, though, when it leads him to an unexpected and most remarkable discovery.At once buoyant and poignant, and filled with irrepressible spirit, A Winter Discovery is a story of that will take you to new places in your heart.

Very good short story..I hadn't read the first book but it didn't alter this story for me. Nice read before the holidays :) Reece reminded me of my grandson when he was that age :) Can't wait to watch the polar express with him again LOL.. I especially loved the non-melting snow flake...I believe it to be his angel(mom) watching over him.. I'm ready for Christmas now :) I have my charlie brown christmas tree do you? ;)
A sweet tale about family, love, acceptance & discovery. Appropriate for children as well. It will warm your heart.
Reese Rubato and his family are characters returning from Michael Baron's earlier work, When You Went Away. Reese doesn't miss much and has a million questions as every 5 year-old boy does. For now, it's winter and Christmas is approaching. He misses his Mom or one should more correctly say he misses not knowing her. But all of a sudden something happens that makes him realize she's not far away at all. Yes, it's a gooey feeling it creates inside him but one he loves and cherishes every time it happens. This is a very brief story that is unusually free of tense conflict but is no less charming and thrilling for that absence. Reese's Dad and step-Mom are very patient and loving with Reese, and the family enjoys the preparations for the big holiday with humor, seriousness, and obvious care. Reese is going to have the most memorable Christmas possible but until then enjoy reading about snowflakes, living snowmen, and so much more. Michael Baron knows how to touch every emotion a reader could experience and the feeling one gets is after having a satisfying and delicious meal!!! Exquisite story, Michael Baron!
