For the Love of St. Nick review and GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Congratulations to cmgnbox01 of What Gives! for winning this lovely book!



Product Description from Amazon.com
Two boys who have lost their mother tragically, worry they'll never see their father,a Naval Commander, after he embarks on a secret mission with the United States military. After the boys are advised by their nanny to seek the help of St. Nick, the boys are shocked by an early Christmas visit.

About the Author from Amazon.com
Garasamo Maccagnone is the author of the novel, "St. John of the Midfield, as well as the childrens book, "The Suburban Dragon,"and a collection of short stories entitled, "The Affliciton of Dreams." Born in the wake of the Korean War, Maccagnone's stories derive from his life and his experiences from the last half of the 20th century. Today Maccagnone lives in Shelby Township with his wife and three children.

MY REVIEW

This is a short and sweet little Christmas story. I found Maccagnone's characters intriguing and easy to like. I really enjoyed the child's perspective. This is a lovely book for the holidays.
