One of the best books I have ever read. It reminded me of all the people who have given so much in their lives and find themselves disconnected. It is a heartwarming story that will impact the way you view family and those less fortunate than yourself.

This is one of my favorite Christmas stories. It's funny, heartwarming, sad, happy - everything a meaningful Christmas story should be. I read my copy yearly - Florence and Myrna should visit your home at the holidays!

This book is what family should be about - respecting what we have and the people who enter our lives, family or not.
