The Bells of Christmas

| No TrackBacks

Once upon a time, before cheese logs and 3G networks, can you remember eagerly anticipating the holidays? In the book The Bells of Christmas, award-winning author Virginia Hamilton tells the story of twelve-year-old Jason Bell as he waits impatiently for his visiting relatives to arrive in 1890 near the historic National Road in Ohio. Jason's Christmas Eve sky is Smurf-blue with no hint of snow--- and fair weather is the worst when your favorite cousin is hoping for a sleigh ride...But the holidays often bring wonderful surprises for everyone.
