"In the Still Midwinter" is the kind of book that will get everybody in the spirit of Christmas; at least I cannot imagine who could resist. This book contains heartwarming short stories that made me smile. Henley Babb is an excellent writer, gifted with a talent to describe the little details, which coincidentally happen to be the little details "all of us" remember, too. Because, these details are the ones that define Christmas; all of us have experienced these beautiful moments.
I am also a bit tired of the many special effects and loud jingles which seem to really "interrupt" the season, non-stop. Come to think about it, today (Oct 24) at home improvement markets the decorated trees are already on display - now - even before we celebrated Thanksgiving or have dressed up for Halloween.
In contrast to this loud season American stores and media seem to force on us, Henley-Babb's stories are thoughtful, sweet, surprising, just like what was "good" about "the good old days." The stories tell of the divorced mom who wants to give her daughter the Christmas gift she really wants, of Rose, who is out of cocoa, and while she goes to get some meets a "homeless man" together they change each others' lives, ... of a ruined Christmas party and what happened next, and "the Brick."
These are no fairy tales, they are a r e a l Christmas stories. Loved them.
