Finished The True Gift by Patricia MacLachlan, a quiet, strange and charming book. It is set more contemporarily than her other works I have read (see Caleb's Story). I always enjoy her books and there are quite a few more that I need to put on my TBR list. This was one of my children's lit Christmas reads for this year. While there is no shortage of holiday themed picture books out there, children's holiday novels are harder to come by. I'll have to dig around and find one more for this year.
