Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Stranger for Christmas  Jan 7, 2008
My request was for the original book and that is what I thought I would get. I had this book before with great pictures and used this story for Sunday School classes around Christmas time. The book I received had the same words but was a much smaller copy and as such would not be useful in the way the original book would be. Since there was not way to know this before the book was bought, it appears it would have been much better if I had bought this book at a bookstore, so there would be a way to know this was not the original book from that artist/author.
A holiday literary gift  Dec 16, 2007
This is a very touching story that examines how our society has made it so convenient to forget the elderly. Nursing homes are thought to be the ideal place the elderly: they are clean, effiently run, and safe. But they lack one thing--family.

In this story two women in a nursing home attempt to rekindle the Christmas spirit--and they even bend the truth in their attempt.

This story is sweet and sad. The writing flows smoothly, making it a quick read--perfect for Christmas eve, perfect for reading aloud to family members. Pearson is a gifted writer...and her book is truly a literary holiday gift.

Also recommended:

Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices--a wonderful story about the power of giving, and the power of healing.

The Christmas Shoes (Christmas Hope Series #1)--another very touching holiday story. It will make you cry.
Very Uplifting  Dec 11, 2007
Ok, it is predictable and very sugary sweet ~~ but I love it anyways. It is just a simple reminder of what Christmas is all about ~~ being with your family and friends. Sometimes, there are surprises in life and they are wonderful.

This little book is about two friends in a nursing home who decided to take on a little project of their own. They wanted to find someone who would take in a little old lady from the nursing home and provide her with a most wonderful Christmas they could imagine ~~ sitting around the family table with plenty of good food to eat, sit around the piano and play Christmas music and having a great time. It is about family coming together in spite of their arguments and squabbles. It is about family taking in strangers, as Myrna was always telling her children, "What is one more?"

As one reviewer said, it's not all that well-written, but it still managed to tug at my heartstrings ~~ which is quite a feat for me this holiday season. It is a very simple book, one that will serve as a reminder that Christmas isn't all about Santa Claus and gifts under the tree ~~ it is also about the verse that is in the bible, "Ye Took Me In and I was a Stranger. Ye Took Me In."

And isn't that what Christmas really is about?

A Stranger for Christmas  Sep 26, 2007
This was a nice short read as I was able to enjoy it in one evening. I liked the banter between the two elderly characters. I did feel that the story wasn't finished when the novel ended. I thought it could have gone in a few other directions to show me more about what would happen if a stranger did come for christmas. It does poise an excellent question and made me think "could I open my home during the holidays?"
A Stranger for Christmas  Jan 4, 2007
This is possibly the best Christmas story I have ever read. I have bought dozens of them for friends and students.
