A Wonderful Heartwarming Novel for Christmas Nov 28, 2006
I loved this book! A great Christmas read for adults and young adults. Viola and Jimmy are charming characters. Even when the book was finished I wanted to be with them just a bit longer. It made me yearn for my own grandmother and to have just one more precious opportunity to sit with her and listen to the unique stories of her life growing up in rural Iowa. The Christmas Letter is a heartwarming, well written novel.

I could not put the book down. What a wonderful heart felt story between a grandmother and her grandson. What devotion and humor. This book is a great read for the whole family. I have suggested this book to our 8th grade Language Arts teacher for a classwork read and discussion. Pat H.

A heartwarming story that will cause you to reflect on your own personal life and relationships with family and friends. This story will make you laugh, cry and get mad and make you want to hug your family too. The author aims for your heart and reels you in from the first page to the last. I can't wait to read his next book.
