I m not sure why I d start reading a book like this on the anniversary of the day my dad died but I started it yesterday After sobbing through the first half I put it down to finish it this evening It s one of those short heartwarming stories where a hardened workaholic learns the true meaning of Christmas someone dies actually multiple people die and you really wish it was snowing outside In short it was lovely and I cried all the way through itThe perspective change throughout was a little confusing Every time a chapter started and the writer said I I had to pay careful attention to which story I was reading I swear I re read the fake forward about three times being confused about Donna Van Liere writing about her wifeBut it was still a great book and I loved how Robert s mom yelled at him I also loved her neighbors and DorisIt s great for a good cry and a reminder of what Christmas is all about And it s a uick read
