Great Book! Well written and a nice read!
I have told many people about this book. It was very touching and made me cry several times in the book.
This story touchs on the subjects of Alzheimer's and Adoption. I enjoyed reading this book. The story could have been longer.
Teddy Winters was eight years old that Christmas, too young to understand all the undercurrents swirling around him in the tiny Michigan town of Dreyerville. He wasn't able to value that Christmas for the miracle it truly was. Teddy only knew he wanted to buy the beautiful Victorian clock in the window of Tremont's Antiques as a gift for his grandmother, Lottie Sparks, a woman desperate to find a home before her rapidly processing Alzheimer's left him an orphan.
Teddy didn't know that in trying to buy the clock he would meet Sylvia Winters and Joe Dixon, a couple, once in love, desperate to overcome the past. He didn't know he would form a friendship with his neighbors, Floyd and Doris Culver, two people struggling to revive their long-dead marriage.
He didn't know that these people would fill his Christmas with magic and hope; that the love of his friends would change his world, and that he would forever change theirs.
Beautiful story and gift book.
Very good book. Gave it away as a Christmas present.
What a great book and a wonderful lesson to learn. Quick easy read.
