Unique collection of 15 Christmas stories by Louisa May Alcott, Willa Cather, Fannie Hurst, Edna Ferber, Pearl Buck, and others.
I actually purchased my copy as a college freshman in 1989 when I was feeling homesick before the holidays. It was very comforting and comfortable - really reminded me of what Christmas felt like at home with Mom baking cookies and Christmas caroles on the record player. I re-read most of the stories every few years, and get something else out of them each time. This year as a mother I saw a few of them with new eyes (sometimes teary). I am now purchasing a few copies to use as gifts - this is a book that every Christian woman can enjoy. There is fine literature here, but also warm stories and heartfelt themes.
