    A wealthy and depressed man (thanks to the economy, he's not quite rich enough to expand his cache of paintings by Vincent Van Guy, the famed Dutch realist) bound for Christmas in the tropics is abruptly summoned home to North Dakota to visit an ailing aunt. He arrives just in time to be trapped there by a blizzard. The electricity goes out, and when it does, figures from his childhood appear, and historical figures too, for a festive candlelit holiday.

    Story

    I wish I could give this book a higher rating, but unfortunately I just can't. Although Garrison Keillor's familiar voice is like listening to an old friend, the book flags in the middle. It is hard for me to finish it. There are some very, very funny parts to it, but I suspect that Garrison Keillor's forte is in telling and writing shorter stories than this. If you're looking for a little something to put you in the holiday spirit and you're a diehard fan, then you might want to drop your credit on listening to this book during your work drive or as you wrap presents. But for me, it just didn't sustain my interest the way the Lake Wobegon stories do.
