This is a very different Christmas book, and enjoyable. But don't expect sweet and sappy and lovey. Short stories, all, so can be read in quick bursts. The irony, the dark side, of the stories give a special twist to the holiday theme.

As only Maeve Binchy can do, these stories evoke the magic and spirit of Christmas in ways that ordinary folks can relate to. No glossing over of relationship troubles, Binchy offers a nourishing view of the holidays that leads to change, growth and new beginnings. A good read.

I LOVED this book. :) It is a collection of short stories based around Christmas...how different people celebrate the holiday...things that happen to them. Special to read around the holiday, but great anytime.

It is a collection of short stories about people around Christmas season. It was as expected coming from Maeve Binchy's wonderful story telling ability. I enjoyed every story and was rather reluctant to finish when the last story ended. I savored the every story of relationships which happens around Christmas. Sadly since she passed away a few years ago, we can expect no more new stories.

I love Christmas themed books and I especially loved this one because it's fifteen relatively short stories. It was a pleasure picking up this book when I found a slice of time, and reading just one story. I'm gathering everything I can find of this beloved author.
