Imagine opening a book and finding your own 8-year old self there, a dearly familiar town recreated with its inhabitants and seasons vividly described, and the narrator's account of a year in her life during the Great Depression releasing torrents of personal memories of that time and place. Such was my experience with Lulu's Christmas Story because I grew up in that town, Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and am a few years younger than the author. However, you need not have grown up in Manitowoc or even in Wisconsin to have this story resonate as powerfully as it did for me. Lulu's story, told in her endearing 8-year old voice, will recall one's own childhood longings, insecurities, small triumphs. The reader will recognize one's own relatives, the dear and not-so-dear, and reflect on one's own family's struggles and hardships. It will make you smile and touch you deeply. I gave the book to my grandchildren who often ask what my life was like as a child and sent copies to high school classmates who were as enthralled as I was and passed it on to other classmates who in turn sent copies to their children and grandchildren.. It is a beautifully written book of recaptured time, a moving book for the present time and for all ages.
