Recently, I read a heartwarming Christmas Story -- My Mother's Wish, by Jerry Camery-Hoggatt.
It's a tiny little work, only 81 pages. I devoured it in one sitting!
It's the enchanting tale of "contrariwise" Ellee Crumb McKutcheson, and her complicated relationship with her domineering mother.
Ultimately, it's a parable about hopes, expectations and love.
Hoggatt, a professor at Vangaurd University, is a master story teller. His humor is fabulous! There were several "laugh out loud" occasions as well as a couple of Kleenex moments.
A great read for Christmas, but I would suggest reading it first before giving it to your mother.
