Imagine if you will, a literary journey that allows you to travel back to Christmas day in 1953. Become a member of a family whose roots are traced back to the Mayflower, and share in their traditions of Christmas holidays and experiences through the 20th into the 21st century.
In this book of six short stories, travel from the villages of Cornville to Corinth. From Machias to Millinocket and venture north into the heart of the Allagash wilderness. Read about a typical New England family’s hopes, customs, and sometimes….their fears.
Still, we must wonder, will the Spirit of Christmas always make it through economic hardships, absence of family members, and storms that snowbound whole communities? What is it that makes Christmas so special- the gifts, the people, the food, the religious celebrations, or could it be all of those and even something more?
