Interesting Christmas story. I had never heard this before, but I liked it. I could almost picture the tree as it was described. Sometimes I wish Christmas would be as simple as I remember those of my childhood, well at least they seemed simple. When did Christmas become about things and not about the perfect gift. I remember treating my things with respect, to appreciate what I received.

Hard to believe Christmas is right around the corner.

This was a very sweet and loving story. The story is short but it packs quite a punch. The writer brings the story of the first Christmas tree to a battling family.

I enjoyed this so much.

I found it pointless. It has nothing to do with Christmas. Very disappointing.

Short story that was free for Kindle.
A nice story about a grandfather who visits his daughter for Christmas and finds a house in turmoil. His daughter has lost her job and is fighting with her husband. The four sons are at war with each other.
Grandfather sits the boys down and tells them a story. About love in the time of the ice age and the healing power of faith in the presence of a magnificent evergreen tree.
The story within the story was very heartwarming.
A nice quick read.

A very short little Christmas love story about the first Christmas tree told by a grandfather to his family. Warmed my heart, but then I'm a sucker for good feeling books that bring a tear to my eye and a smile to my heart. Free on the Kindle, worth the reading.

Eh, it was ok. I got this story for free on Barnes and for my Nook. It was a nice short story, just not quite my usual taste.

This is a very short, sentimental Christmas tale. It is enjoyable, but certainly could have been a chapter in a much longer, interesting saga.

Short warm hearted story. The mention of my first home town, Lomita, caught my attention.
