An original holiday story with meaty content

Whether you're following this series or this group of characters is new to you, you will find them pesenting a holday story well worth hearing! So many holiday stories are predictable, honey-sweet stories that don't challenge the listener. The characters in the series have become old friends over time, but whether you're new to the series or not, you won't be sorry if you choose this story for the holidays. At first, I wasn't sure that I could listen to Christina Moore as the narrator, but I've found that she's become the perfect voice for characters that I've grown to love. I am not a quilter and thought the subject matter might be boring, but I was wrong! I learned about history while treating myself to a 'clean' and 'uplifting story' that was meaty in content and very different than the usual holiday story line. It was wonderful to be able to play this book in the presence of children and friends without needing to apologize for curse words or x-rated content. If you choose this book, you'll have a rich story with historic content that you will find enriching to your modern holiday. Sometimes, we grow tired of 'so many sweets' at the holidays and we find ourselves craving some calories with nutritional content - you'll find that in this story!

Good Story

The story is good, only drawback is that it was recorded from a cassette and it states to turn the cassette over. Otherwise, good Christmas story.
