On the Back Cover:

Two California boys, coping with the loss of their mother, find themselves uprooted when their father, a Navy Commander, is transferred to a base in northern Michigan.  With the youngest boy continuously sick, the family must survive military life and the northern elements as they dwell in their little hunter’s cabin on Lake Huron.  When the boy’s father, the commander, must leave prior to Christmas to fulfill his secret mission for the United States Military, the boys are surprised by a chance encounter that saves a life, and reunites a family.

My Review:  What a heartbreaker – two young boys without a mom and being raised by a military dad and a nanny.  Whew!  This is a sweet holiday read.  I enjoyed it quite a bit although praying to St. Nicholas is a little out of my comprehension.  Even so, this sweet book held my attention and I grew very attached to those two little boys while reading it.  I always love a Christmas miracle and this story had a huge one.  The boys’ relationship was sweet and refreshing.  I was engaged throughout the book.  The setting, northern Michigan was completely Christmasy.  I shed a few tears as well.  Another great Christmas story!

    Ok, I think that makes it official, that I was the only person that did not like this book…as you can read here.

    Well, I am glad that you liked it so much!
