This is a continuation of tyvmdear's stalled bookring for The Christmas Box. The orginal journal entries can be found here.

"Whatever the reason, I find that with each passing Christmas the story of the Christmas Box is told less and needed more. So I record it now for all future generations to accept or dismiss as seems them good. As for me, I believe. And it is, after all, my story."

So begins The Christmas Box, the touching story of a widow and the young family who moves in with her. Together they discover the first gift of Christmas and learn what Christmas is really all about. The Christmas Box is a Christmas story unlike any other.

The remaining participants are:

Happy BookCrossing!

Arrived this morning. I do have two rather hefty bookrings in front, but will probably ring jump this one as it is a slim book. I'll PM heaven-ali straight away.

A really delightful and gentle read. The story a couple and their daughter Jenna,and an important friendship, showing that meaningful friendships can develop quickly from complete strangers. This story in this book will remain with me long after I have sent it off traveling.It is also one of my favourite's for the year.

The story gives us a message. That we should value and treasure things, for when they are gone it is too late.

I have heaven-ali's address, so this will be in the post on Monday 25th.

Thanks so much for sharing this is really a super book.

This is a sweet, moving little book. The author apparently wrote the story for his daughters, and then went on to publish the book. A seemingly simple tale that has a very profound message. I may try to get a couple of copies of this as stocking fillers for this Christmas.

I will be sending on ASAP
