Understanding thru the eyes of a child, the the hopes and disappointments, which surround the holiday season, lead to the reality for the young adult what in life is really important.
I hope everyone reads and loves this book as much as I did.
This memoir is told all in Christmases, little samples of the author's life growing up fairly poor in Norridgewock, Maine, half Cuban and therefore half an outsider (although the fact that the other half was an old Maine family probably made it easier).
I know too the feeling of leaving home young and never really going home, and how the guilt when you do visit can be quite overwhelming. This book evokes the time and place so well that it brought me to tears several times. A real triumph.

This author was from the town where we live so that made it more interesting. Also, we knew a lot of the person mentioned in the book. It was funny but also a little sad.Published 8 months ago by L. M. Atkinson
