At Christmastime, a pregnant teenage runaway finds herself in the care of an elderly grandma-type who is an independent, practical, tough-minded recluse living in a remote part of South Dakota.

This story ranks at the top of the twilight zone recordings I've heard so far.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
But the story inside is from the twilight zone,
With messages from the Angels of Christmas,
The story has many threads to follow along,
Yet they all seem to say: 'be kind on more than Christmas Day'
Some hammy acting from the young females does not spoil this sweet Christmas story. A story that jumps from place to place, but not irritatingly so. A common thread (sorta) keeps it together. A sense of "where the heck is this story going" is not always a bad thing, given the predictability of some TZ stories.
