The author takes several tough topics like the breaking of Christmas traditions, what to do with a shelter dog that appears to be untrainable, a young man with a learning disability and a young family being broken up right before Christmas. The author takes you thought topics that will make you think differently about what tradition really is and going beyond your comfort zone to achieve what you feel is ethically and morally right. Not to mention a mischievous dog that provide a great deal of comic relief. The story brings to light what is important to each person’s life be it family needs, personal survival, or delivering a message that has been lost many years ago. This could easily be another traditional Christmas Story much like A Christmas Coral by Charles Dickens. It brings a well-meaning story to light for all to enjoy. A book I would highly recommend for this coming Christmas season.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
