“Not sure if it's a good idea to review my own book but...
I wrote this collection with the intention of sharing four stories of Christmas that left a very special mark on my life. You might even say they helped shape my belief in the meaning of the season.
The first story (Unexpected Guests) was first published in the book A Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas in 2007. It's about a Christmas Eve I spent in Germany in 1981 with a young German couple while I was serving in the United States Air Force. Their kindness never left my heart.
The second (Our Christmas of 1971) is about the first Christmas my family experienced after being homeless that same year.
The thirst (Hands) is a different holiday tale. It shows how the curiosity of a child reminded me of how we are all different, yet similar in many ways.
The final story (Sweet Potato Pie for Christmas) shows how different cultures can come together in harmony, in spite of those differences.
It's now FREE at Amazon through December 25th. If you would be so kind to read it and give me a review, I'd be grateful. It is the only way to truly know if I was able to convey the message I wanted.
