Cherrye Vasquez,
What a beautiful childhood Christmas story. I love how Deirdre Tolhurst shared her Christmas memories as displayed in "A Christmas I Remember." I adore the poetic style used as Deirdre enlightened her readers through this sweet little book.

Deirdre Tolhurst

It's Christmas Eve and a blizzard brings heavy, blinding deep snow to Deirdre's town. It is beautiful to gaze upon, yet the little girl wonders if Santa can make it through the storm. She watches out her window as her dad shovels snow that keeps piling right back, but falls asleep, despite her worries, and awakens on Christmas morning.
