I LOVE Michael Baron! He can write wonderfully heart warming stories that stay with you forever! Michael Baron can write! His characters are fully developed, the story lines of his books are solid. The subject matter he writes about is touching. He is a new author I have found through the Publisher, Story Plant. Through a 'spread the word' initiative from the Publisher, this book was brought to my attention, and I'm so glad they did this! Since I have read other books by Michael Baron, I could NOT pass this novella up! It is a short story, about 60 pages in length, short, but has a punch to it you will never forget. All of Michael Baron's book are as excellent as this one is. He is an author you do NOT want to pass up!
This book is a sequel to the book "When You Went Away", although this book can stand alone on it's own quite perfectly, as it is written so magically and beautifully. It is a Christmas story you will want to pick up and reread every year. In this book, we have a little boy, Reese, who lost his mother when he was an infant. He never got to know his Mom. We also get to see Christmas through his Dad and his step mother as well. They love Reese very much.
We see Christmas through the eyes of this five-year old child through the magic of the Christmas television shows he sees. Life is as it happens through these characters. He expects Frosty to really come to life, and his play reflects it. He tries to explain to his Dad that Frosty WILL come to life if he is exactly as he is like in the TV show they watched last night. Dad should know this! The innocence of this little boy is heart warming!
Another 5-star book from Michael Baron, very well worth reading! Another 'don't miss this book OR this author'! Snatch this book up right away and read it at any time of year! The message will be as heart warming at any time you read it! I HIGHLY recommend this book!
