THE NATIVITY COLLECTION:
Six Stories that Share the Smiles, the Heart, and the Hope of Christmas

The stories are:
Ollie-A story of how a mix up turned into a wonderful Christmas of sharing.
Poet Boy- Christmas Eve, the Nativity told in a little different way, when a young man forgets his lines in a play.
Over My Dead Body- A famous carver, and how a grandchild opened his eyes to God, and the Nativity Scene he carved that everyone wanted.
Five Quarters of a Mile- A blizzard, a child alone with his grandfather, who has a heart attack, and how the Nativity carved by the grandfather's grandfather saved them.
Nativity Seen Smiling- A pre Christmas wedding, a honeymoon that goes badly, and a young couple whose marriage starts off on the wrong foot, and how a a Nativity Scene helps them back on the right road.
Sugarplum and the Christmas Cradle-A story with a surprise ending, including a real live Nativity.
The first story, Ollie, had me in tears very quickly, and I can bet that most of the others who read it, will shed a tear or two. Poet Boy had tears rolling for a different reason, and you can really imagine that this is a true story.
My first thought, this would make a great gift book and it will, but it is also a book that I will keep, and reread every Christmas. All the stories are special, and touching in many different ways.
