A nostalgic and charming tale that evokes the wonder and miracle of Christmas
Best friends Audrey Barrett and Eve Dawson can't wait to celebrate Christmas in postwar America. They are thrilled about starting new traditions with their five-year-old sons, even daring to hope there might be fresh beginnings ahead for both of them, too. But when the 1951 Sears Christmas Wish Book arrives and the boys start obsessing over every toy in it, Audrey and Eve realize their most important task is teaching them the true meaning of the holiday by giving presents, not just asking for them.
The heartwarming tale that unfolds reminds us all that sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones we least expect and often don't deserve.
- Truly Enjoyed
I recently finished "The Wish Book Christmas" by Lynn Austin and really enjoyed it. The two main characters are best friends from "If I Were You" and their adorable sons. Ms. Austin has really pegged the humor of a 4-year-old boy and I laughed at their antics more than once. I think the story stands on its own but you might enjoy it more if you've read the first book before reading this one; I recommend both.
