Book Details

Restore your spirit through magical memories of Christmas.

"Magical snow, a Dickensian village come to life, and a Shakespearean garden all lend a sense of joy and wonder to these fourteen tales, not unlike the feelings experienced by a child on Christmas morning. I encourage readers young and old to take a break from their over-scheduled lives to read The Christmas Village and Other Tales of the Magic and Memories of Christmas and reconnect with what is important about the holiday season. These charming stories remind us that our families grow up and our circumstances change, but the true spirit and meaning of Christmas remains constant in our lives." --Betsy Bitner, award winning humor columnist (Times Union, Albany, NY) Author Dr. Joe Wheeler, "America's Keeper of the Story" and editor of the Christmas in My Heart series, "discovered the familial multidimensionality of the stories. Of the trials and challenges of raising children--especially a house full of girls. The intertwining of actual and mystical was very well done. My compliments on a job well done!"
