I read this book years ago and it always stayed with me. i won't swap my copy that's how much i loved this story. a very touching story. i read it in one sitting.
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!

Such a sweet, feel-good story! I laughed and cried.
A quick, easy, and enjoyable Christmas story. However the plot is VERY predictable.
Grab a cup of tea and enjoy this quick read. Nice little cozy Christmas tale.
This book is what family should be about - respecting what we have and the people who enter our lives, family or not.
