Item Description...
A heartwarming Yuletide classic. The hope of the Christmas season infuses this story of childhood loss with meaning and redeeming grace.

Publishers Description
A Christmas gift books for adults and teens, this is a moving account of a child growing out of mystery and into understanding through the death of his father. Ending at Christmas, the hope of the season is the book's true meaning. "What I wanted to do in this little book was to convey as directly and completely and as honestly as I could what it felt like to be the ten year old child I was at the time of my father's death in 1936." This story of Teddy Schroeder and his sister Bean is a moving account of a child growing out of mystery (the mysteries of the world) into understanding. As a novel it is simple and evocative, focused on the inner feelings more than outward events. The big event is the death of the narrator's father and what it does to Teddy and Bean. The book ends at Christmas, and while it is not about Christmas the hope of the season is the book's meaning (and the author's intention). At the end, when the children are in church, they sing from the hymn "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" the lines: "This holy tide of Christmas doth bring redeeming grace." Teddy reflects on this, what the word "tide" means and whether it is about the beach where they had been with their father. Bean asks Teddy, "What is the tide of Christmas if you think you're so smart?" and Teddy replies: "It's the high tide, Bean. It's the Wizard of Oz tide. It's the one that brings you home." "Everybody?" Bean said. "Everybody," Teddy said. "Then he said just one more thing even though he nearly didn't because he was afraid it might make Bean cry the way she had been crying the time he found her under the bridge table. 'Even Daddy, ' he said." -- From the author's introduction This book was originally published as "The Wizard's Tide."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The pay off comes in the last few pages  Dec 17, 2005
This book, as previously noted, is a rerelease of The Wizard's Tide, and is a fictionalized account of Buechner's childhood. Those who have read his autobiographical books will enjoy it much more than those who have not.

Like most of Buechner's books, it is haunting and beautiful, wistful and painful, but with a final note of joy that triumphs over tragedy. The pay off comes in the last few pages. Read it, stick with it, and enjoy it.
a reissue - not a new book  Oct 12, 2005
This book is a reissue of "The Wizard's Tide" under a new title. It's a novel about two kids during the great depression; it's written by Buechner, so of course, it's excellent. Just wanted to make sure no one orders this thinking it's a brand new book by Buechner (though well worth buying if you don't already have it.
