I love books by David McCullough and this time is no different. I enjoyed being taken back in time to a special moment when Churchill arrived secretly to America and met with Roosevelt right before Christmas during the War. This book tells the short story and shares their personal speeches. Then it also gives the history of the song "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem". That story is inspiring. It also includes the program on dvd along with the book when David McCullough shared this story with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performing the songs. A quick read, but a great story to share every christmas. It makes you feel warm all over and truly feel the spirit of Christmas.
