Abstract:

"Best known for his suspenseful Civil War novels, Parry is carving out a new niche for himself as a spinner of holiday magic. Like his previous Christmas classic, 'Our Simple Gifts' (2002), these five heartwarming tales, alternated with Christmas poems, are meticulously steeped in historical detail and atmosphere. Abounding in compassion and goodwill, they represent a chronological passage through the Christmas holidays of yesteryear. From the meager Christmas in a company coal town in the late nineteenth century to the lavish but essentially empty holiday spread taken for granted by a tycoon's family in 1960, these stories resonate with bittersweet warmth and humor. As always, Parry's major strength lies in his mastery of period detail and dialogue. Another charming treasure trove of Yuletide America."
