" . . . a nostalgic and handsome Christmas memento."—Books of the Southwest
"A wonderful read aloud book."—Roundup Magazine
Well-known author of Love Is a Wild Assault and The Divine Average, Elithe Hamilton Kirkland reveals her childhood memories of Christmas. Here are the magical holiday recollections of a five-year-old girl, wide-eyed in the presence of the grandmother’s bountiful kitchen, her grandfather’s Sacred Harp songbook, and her bachelor uncle’s bottle of Four Roses. Originally printed primarily as a Christmas gift for family and friends, this lesser known story will delight Kirkland’s many fans, as well as those who love nostalgic Christmas tales.
"What a joy to have all your wonderful books. You are one of my heroes!"—Ann W. Richards, former Governor of Texas, in a personal letter to Kirkland
