What an amazing book! I read an excerpt of this in one of my women's magazines and immediately ran out and bought the book. It is such a sweet tale of a man who farms christmas trees and sells them in New York. Its a tale of how he tries to raise his two children by farming, all on his own, since his wife passed away. This is a very heartfelt story and the perfect one to read while curled up infront of the fire and christmas tree!!

A little slow at the start, but it then took off. It was hard once the story got going. Very good read.

This a beautiful, sweet Christmas story! I really enjoyed it very much! Hallmark has made a movie called Silver Bells based on this book. It's a good movie too.
