Publisher's Summary

If even a small part of a child still lives within your heart, The Angel Doll can't help but captivate. It is a timeless, deeply moving Christmas classic about the greatest gift of all: the lesson of love.

Set in a North Carolina manufacturing town in the 1950s, this is the story of two young boys, best friends, both 10 years old. One has a four-year-old sister, desperately ill with polio, whose favorite book is The Littlest Angel. She longs for one thing: an angel doll for Christmas - something nobody in town has ever seen. The boys set out to get her one, at great cost and even greater reward.

Critic Reviews

"Because Bledsoe doesn't milk the emotions, the poignant ending is neither manipulative nor preachy, but authentically moving." ( Publishers Weekly)
