I read this in a day and really enjoyed it! As it happens, it takes place at Christmastime. I hadn't realized it was seasonal when I picked it up, so that was a pleasant surprise.

The novel was a bit unrealistic and saccharine in places, as well as very predictable. Also, the epilogue was completely unnecessary and detracted from, rather than added to, the book. It should have been cut. However, the characterization and smooth writing style were real strengths. I fell in love with the Vanderbeeker family and Glaser's prose never got in the way as I followed them along their delightful journey. Recommended if you would like to pay a visit to a kinder, gentler world for a few hours.

Was almost thrown out! Saved it. I'm going to release it out into the book galaxy.
