DeChant offers an engaging assortment of heartwarming and heartrending stories culled from six generations of her family's history. The book is artfully designed as a literary Advent calendar, with each anecdote preceded by a brief quotation from one of the recommended Scripture readings for that date. Since this work is a direct outgrowth of DeChant's belief that people understand and interpret the ever-evolving Bible in light of their own unique experiences and histories, she also includes personal reflections pertaining to each story and its corresponding biblical passage. This delightfully wholesome collection of memories and meditations will appeal to readers seeking both entertainment and inspiration during the Christmas season. Margaret Flanagan
