Truly an outstanding book in which the author conveys the true meaning of Christmas expertly. She tosses in some really humorous portions to keep the reader entertained, as well. I did have to laugh with the vision of Mother Bodee doing the electric slide!
A gem of a book which I am glad to have read even after Christmas Day. Three Kings Day is not here quite yet so I feel as though I am on time!!
Most highly recommended. .
