Not just a Christmas story!

A quick, fun read with a message about pulling together, even after discord. About the struggle to become better people, even after we've let others down. And about finding the true spirit of Christmas. It's not just a Christmas story, though. The grinches in our lives are out there all year round. So the struggle to find, and hold onto, that special joy found at Christmas time is always worth the challenge. Like her previous book, The Master's Plan, this story provides a heartfelt look at all the behind the scenes wrangling that goes on in groups trying to plan events and foster community. Flawed, but endearing characters are everywhere--some of them textbook examples of the kind of characters I've encountered in my own community service experiences. Such a hopeful story it'll make you believe all that effort is worthwhile.
