Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming holiday tale from the author of A Year on Ladybug Farm.

Paul and Derrick have hit their stride with the Hummingbird House Bed and Breakfast, a destination of distinction in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Guests are coming from all over the country to enjoy their Christmas weekend extravaganza, featuring sleigh rides, champagne suppers, holiday concerts, and spa treatments. Of course there are a few glitches: 20 Christmas trees to be decorated in less than a week, an absentee massage therapist, and - perhaps most distressing of all - the unexpected presence of three school-age children in the Hummingbird House, courtesy of their saucy young housekeeper Purline.

While Purline tries to teach her children, as well as her bosses, the true meaning of Christmas, the lost and the lonely - often disguised as the wealthy and the privileged - are drawn to the Hummingbird House. Among them are the author of a famous book on miracles who has lost his faith, a family secretly on the verge of disaster, and a husband and wife facing their last Christmas together.

With the help of a Harley-riding stranger, a series of unexpected events, and the innocent good intentions of their hosts, healing comes to the wounded and miracles unfold, proving once again that at the Hummingbird House you may not always find what you expect, but you'll always find what you need.

Sweet Christmas Read

Sweet book to read at Christmas. No it wasn't one of those books that you just couldn't put down, but it brought the meaning of Christmas out loud and clear and was a quick, enjoyable read.

Not my kind of story

I don't care to read about two men running a bed and breakfast that don't like kids. I did like the narrator though.
