About The Book:
Every year at Christmastime, Will and Ella Sullivan, and their father, Henry, come to a family agreement: Christmas is a holiday for other people. At their brownstone in Harlem, stockings go unstuffed, tinsel unstrewn, gifts unbought, mistletoe unhung, chestnuts unroasted, carols unplayed, cookies uncooked, a tree un-visible, and guests uninvited. Until guests start arriving anyway. In pairs and sixes, in sevens and tens—they keep coming. And they stay. For twelve long, hard, topsy-turvy, very messy days. That’s when the Sullivans discover that those moments in life that defy hope, expectation, or even imagination, might be the best gifts of all.
This was such a funny little read. Everyone knows the song The Twelve Days of Christmas. Well, imagine those gifts coming every day! That's exactly what happens to the Sullivan family. They receive gifts relating to the song...animals, people, and yes, even the five golden rings. What an epic, madcap adventure that turns out to be, especially for a family that has been suffering for the last five years.
Henry Sullivan lost his wife five years ago and hasn't allowed anything Christmas since her death, even though he has two children, Ella 12 and Will 14. What ends up happening turns out to be the best possible turnaround for Henry and his kin. Who is sending these gifts, and more importantly why? Well, you will have to read the book to find out, but trust me it is worth it. This was such a fun, quick read and pure Christmas magic.
